What is the difference between HFCWO and HFCC?

HFCWO (high frequency chest wall oscillation) and HFCC (high frequency chest compression) are analogous terms which describe the same airway clearance treatment.

 

Are the treatments uncomfortable or painful?

Far from it!  The RespIn 11 Bronchial Clearance System uses its patented pressure pistons to produce a series of 'focused pulses' direct to the thorax and into the bronchial tree.  Many patients have described this feeling as a gentle massage-like therapy.

RespIn 11 requires a prescription from a physician and is now available to E.U. patients and to U.S. patients through Durable Medical Equipment (DME) and Home Medical Equipment (HME) retailers.

What are some of the advantages of the RespIn 11 over other systems?

RespIn 11 is the first HFCWO therapy using our patented 'focused pulse' technology.  Unlike existing vests on the market today, RespIn 11 is far easier to tolerate and therefore easier to maintain a daily regime.

 

Will you have my size?

Can a nebulizer treatment be given at the same time as treatment?
