AffloVest – The New Gold Standard
Mobile Airway Clearance Therapy That Mimics 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.
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.
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
AffloVest can be prescribed for:
Late Effects of poliomyelitis
Anterior horn cell diseases
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.
What AffloVest Users Are Saying
“Nathan doesn’t let doing the AffloVest stop him from having fun with his friends. In fact, our house is the local hangout in the neighborhood. None of them bat an eye at his treatments.”
“WOW! The intensity was strong but with the intermittent percussion and vibration, I didn’t feel a restraint on my breathing. I managed 2 miles total in that 30-minute session.”
“It can get pretty boring sitting in the same place 3 times a day for the time being for treatments. This makes me feel less constricted and like I can live a little more. I’m so happy I got this!”
