AffloVest

Truly Wearable Respiratory Care

 

The AffloVest is the first fully portable, battery-operated High Frequency Chest Wall Oscillation (HFCWO) vest on the market. It has been demonstrated to consistently improve lung function for patients with long term use. It is designed to enhance mobilization of bronchial secretions where external manipulation of the thorax is the physician’s choice of treatment.

 

We find that compliance is high for this device since it is lightweight, comfortable, and easy to use. Patients can go about their day with freedom of movement and even the ability to travel, bringing their respiratory therapy equipment along for the ride.

Customized, Targeted Lung Treatment

 

Our clinicians assist in customizing patient treatment using the vest’s targeted motors to focus on specific lobes or chest wall regions with different levels of intensity. Percussion, vibration, and drainage modes are available to create a full range of therapies for complete patient care.

AffloVest Technology

During the 1980s, air bladder technology was developed for vests used to treat patients with chronic lung conditions. Technology has come a long way since that time. The state-of-the-art AffloVest incorporates the latest in oscillation therapy, portability, and mobility to deliver a superior patient experience.

AffloVest has eight oscillating motors creating eight individual pressure wave forms. These individual motors allow the device to target different areas of the lungs, effectively mobilizing secretions. The vest is completely postural independent and can be using sitting, standing or lying down

 

  • Three treatment programs – Percussion, Vibration, and Drainage
  • Three treatment levels available – Soft (5 Hz), Medium (13 Hz), and Intense (20 Hz)
  • Portable design provides freedom of movement and mobility to facilitate patient compliance with treatment plans
