Acapella is the best way for patients to get the benefits of both airway vibrations and Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) therapy for mobilising pulmonary secretions. It is a convenient therapy that does not necessarily require the presence of a professional. It can also be administered in virtually any position, whether standing, sitting or reclining.
The Portex Acapella vibratory positive expiratory pressure system is a respiratory breathing therapy device that promotes respiratory secretions after breaking up mucus. It is used to open the airwaves of patients with lung disease and secretory problems such as asthma and cystic fibrosis.
One of its strongest features is the ability to adjust its frequency and flow resistance. It's more comfortable and faster than conventional Chest Physical Therapy (CPT) sessions.
The Portex Acapella can be easily disassembled for thorough cleaning and can withstand boiling, dishwashing and autoclaving. It is suitable for almost any lung capacity and comes with a one-way respiratory valve that allows for comfortable breathing while in use.
