AffloVest Mobile CPT – The New Gold Standard

Fully mobile during use airway clearance therapy that simulates 8 pairs of hands performing manual Chest Physiotherapy

The AffloVest is the first battery operated High Frequency Chest Wall Oscillation (HFCWO) airway clearance therapy that was scientifically engineered to closely mimic manual CPT, the gold standard in airway clearance therapy. Patented Direct Dynamic Oscillation™ technology can help loosen and mobilize secretions. With no bulky hoses or generators, the AffloVest is engineered to encourage compliance by allowing patients to experience an improved quality of life with full mobility during treatment.

  • First fully mobile during use HFCWO Airway Clearance Therapy

  • Anatomically targets all 5 lobes of the lungs, front and back

  • Promotes airway clearance and secretion mobilization

  • Improved Lung function shown in clinician papers

LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW AFFLOVEST WORKS

The AffloVest has eight oscillating motors creating eight individual pressure wave forms that closely mimic manual CPT, providing disruption in the lungs and mobilizing secretions, helping the body’s task of discharging harmful excess secretions. These individual motors allow AffloVest to target different areas of the lungs.

With three distinctly different modes of treatment that can each be set at one of three intensities for a total of nine possible variations of oscillation treatment, AffloVest gives patients the ability to tailor treatment to their needs. Ease of use and mobility can contribute greatly to the AffloVest’s effectiveness and increased compliance. This can lead to improved lung function as shown in multiple clinician papers.*

AffloVest can be prescribed for:

  • Bronchiectasis

  • Cystic Fibrosis

  • Late Effects of poliomyelitis

  • Quadriplegia

  • Muscular dystrophy

  • Myotonic disorders

  • Anterior horn cell diseases

  • Multiple sclerosis

  • Other disorders of diaphragm

AffloVest requires a doctor’s prescription for treatment by High Frequency Chest Wall Oscillation (HFCWO). The AffloVest has received the FDA’s 510k clearance for U.S. market availability, and is approved for Medicare, Medicaid, and private health insurance reimbursement under the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System(HCPCS) codeE0483 – High Frequency Chest Wall Oscillation. The AffloVest is also available through the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs/Tricare. Patients must qualify to meet eligibility requirements.

Airway Clearance Therapy

Diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)/ bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, quadriplegia and other neuromuscular disorders can reduce lung function, increase mucus production and interfere with proper breathing.  Increased mucus production and retention of excess mucus increase the risk of lung infections.

Learning how to effectively clear mucus from the air passages is extremely important. Airway clearance therapy can loosen thick mucus secretions so it can be mobilized from your lungs by coughing or huffing. Clearing the airways may help decrease lung infections, reduce antibiotic use and hospitalization,  and improve lung function.

Chest physical therapy (CPT) is one of the commonly used techniques to assist in the loosening and mobilization of mucus in the lungs. Manual CPT uses percussion, vibration and postural drainage to loosen mucus from airway walls.

The AffloVest mimics manual CPT by using mechanical oscillation to help loosen and thin mucus in the lungs.

Let’s See What AffloVest Users Have To Say?

LOVING MY NEW VEST!!!! No hoses, no electric cords, totally mobile! Technology just keeps getting better and better. I Pray one day they will find a cure for CF, but until then, I’m gonna keep on, keepin on!

Ashley

I can’t explain how much of a game changer this is! I used to dread being stuck in one spot while doing my air way clearance, and now I can do anything! It’s comfortable, adjustable and I can feel the difference!

Kelsey

Great vest! Definitely not a weak device! Drainage option is my favorite. The first week was hard because it brought so much up! Glad I pushed and persuaded my clinic to write the prescription.

Lung Function Improvement Demonstrated in Clinician Data

The proof is in the data. Multiple clinician papers confirm results we’ve seen before – improved patient lung function with AffloVest® by International Biophysics. Average FVC, FEV1, and FEF 25-75% scores increased 15.22%, 17.41%, and 11.21% respectively.
