Title (EN) PURSED LIP BREATHING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF RESPIRATOIRE « LEVRES PINCEES »
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A pursed lip breathing device includes a housing defining an air channel through which a user breathes. A mouthpiece is attached to the housing and includes an aperture generally aligned with the air channel so that when the user breathes through the aperture, an airflow is generated in the air channel. The mouthpiece has outer dimensions designed so that the user's lips are pursed during breathing. During breathing, the airflow in the air channel is restricted to include pressure on the user's pulmonary system. Information or feedback regarding the user's breathing may also be provided so that the user is motivated and encouraged during breathing exercises and may monitor the therapeutic effect of his or her breathing.
(FR)le dispositif respiratoire « lèvres pincées » de l'invention comprend un boîtier définissant un conduit d'air pour la respiration. Un embout fixé au boîtier comprend une ouverture généralement dans l'axe du conduit de telle sorte qu'un flux d'air est crée dans le conduit d'air lorsque l'utilisateur respire par cette ouverture. Les dimensions extérieures de l'embout sont calculées pour que les lèvres soient pincées pendant la respiration. Pendant la respiration, le flux d'air dans le canal est restreint de manière, ce qui exerce une pression sur le système respiratoire. Des informations peuvent également être fournies ou communiquées en retour à l'utilisateur/utilisatrice sur sa respiration de manière à l'encourager pendant les exercices respiratoires et à lui permettre d'en observer les effets thérapeutiques.
