The Lung Flute, a medical device by Medical Acoustics, is indicated for Positive Expiratory Pressure therapy, which is an important part of Bronchial Hygiene Therapy (BHT). BHT can be used for a variety for congestive conditions such as: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma, emphysema or other chronic respiratory ailments.
Enduring lung congestion with thick, chronic mucus that is difficult to break up makes breathing can be a constant struggle. This may result in having to rely on medications, inhalers, oxygen therapy or even surgery to open up your airways. Everyday activities can become an effort.
The Lung Flute is a FDA-cleared Lung Flute is the only product that uses sound vibration to stimulate the body’s natural mucus-clearing system – effectively thinning and dislodging mucus deep in the lungs so that it’s easier to cough up. The small, reusable, plastic device is non-invasive, easy to use and drug-free – just blow into the mouthpiece and the device will do the rest.
Clinical tests have proven the Lung Flute’s ability to break up mucus in the lungs, making it equally effective for both therapeutic and diagnostic use. Unlike other devices, which rely on pressure and can’t reach deep lung mucus, the Lung Flute’s technology is based on low-frequency acoustic waves that are produced when you blow into the flute-shaped device.
