Inception Study: 3 Months of AffloVest Use
As the first truly portable, battery-operated HFCWO therapy vest, the AffloVest was specifically engineered and designed to give patients freedom and mobility while doing their airway clearance therapy. AffloVest is designed to deliver seamless mobility, without the constriction of bulky hoses and generators found in other therapies, to help improve the quality of life for patients with Cystic Fibrosis, Bronchiectasis and other respiratory diseases.
With portability in mind, patients can now live a more active and mobile lifestyle, without sacrificing their airway clearance therapy. No more taking time out of life or planning the days around therapy and treatments, the AffloVest gives patients a whole new lifestyle, on the go! Because the AffloVest is battery powered, treatments while traveling are simple and easy, anywhere and at any time.
The AffloVest comes in a compact duffel travel case with rolling wheels that provides convenient portability when traveling near or far. If you are taking a road trip or going camping with the family, the AffloVest duffel can be easily stored in your vehicle. Airway clearance treatments can be done while you are on the go, with no need for to be plugged into electricity or power adapters to operate the AffloVest.
If you are traveling by air, the AffloVest duffel travel case is compact enough to be used as a carry-on luggage and will fit into the overhead bin of most aircrafts. Because it is classified as a medical device, most airlines will allow travelers to carry on the AffloVest as luggage, but make sure you have your prescription with you, to avoid any problems. You can also check your AffloVest in its duffel travel case or inside your own luggage. But keep in mind, you must remove the lithium-ion battery from the AffloVest if you are planning on checking it, and bring it onto an aircraft with you. It is best to contact the individual airlines or visit their website for clarification and travel guidelines when taking your medical devices with you.
