AffloVest Mobile Mechanical HFCWO airway clearance therapy can be an effective therapy for individuals with neuromuscular disorders. AffloVest is a patient-specific HFCWO therapy with 8 anatomically positioned oscillating motors that create individual pressure waveforms to target all lobes of the lungs, front and back, to loosen, thin and mobilize lung secretions, and designed to closely mimic the gold standard, manual CPT.
If desired, a variety of airway clearance therapies may be combined during use with the AffloVest to help optimize airway clearance. With its unique design and the ability to take full, deep breaths during treatment, nebulizer treatments and postural drainage techniques can be combined with AffloVest therapy with the goal of improving lung function and helping improve a person’s quality of life.
AffloVest was designed with ease-of-use in mind for patients, families and caregivers, to deliver airway clearance therapy that can be managed at home or in the hospital. With no bulky tubes and heavy generators as found in other HFCWO therapies, the AffloVest can be utilized in any postural position (i.e. laying down, standing, sitting, inclined, reclined etc.) all to help improve the quality of life for patients with MS, MD, ALS, and other neuromuscular and respiratory diseases.
