What Makes SmartVest a Better Airway Clearance Therapy?

ENGINEERED FOR COMFORT SmartVest squeezes less because it releases more air between compressions than other vests.1 And pressure release leads to a more comfortable therapy. If shortness of breath, frequent cough, or chest pain is getting in the way of you enjoying life’s moments, you may be living with a chronic respiratory condition, such as COPD, cystic fibrosis, or bronchiectasis.

Over your lifetime, these lung diseases can weaken the airways, making it difficult for your body to naturally clear mucus on its own so it can prevent the spread of infection. This is where SmartVest could help and offer more BREATHING ROOM™ to help manage symptoms from your chronic lung condition.

An industry leader in clinical studies, SmartVest offers an effective, life-changing solution to help people manage their symptoms and live life independently. As a commitment to excellence and transparency, our research is vetted and routinely published in respected journals like Respiratory Therapy.
