Yes - the device that eventually became the Airofit breathing trainer was originally developed and tested by the AMBU - an international Danish MedTech company developing, producing medical equipment for hospitals and rescue services. It was designed as medical aid for patients suffering from asthma and COPD.
“After 8 days of training with Airofit, I managed to break four of my personal records. Even though I’m an asthmatic, I could get through the high-intensity training without my medicine.”
- RASMUS STEENBERG
Swimmer, Nordic Youth Champion
“After 3 months of training with Airofit, I have now won the Danish Championship for teams. Best part – I haven’t been using my asthma medicine.”
- MAGNUS ANDERSEN
Swimmer, Danish Champion for teams
According to the Global Asthma report 2018, Asthma affects 339 million people worldwide. Athletes who use Airofit and suffer from Asthma have positive feedback in terms of improving the way that they cope with the disease.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonic Disease, also known as COPD is an umbrella term used to describe certain types of lung diseases such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and refractory asthma (COPD Foundation). Living with COPD limits people from doing physical activity. Airofit users who suffer from such diseases claim that they can improve their Vital Lung Capacity and general wellbeing within weeks of starting to train with the device.
Respiratory Muscle training has been tested as a means against the effects of COPD and Asthma. A substantial range of studies are available to demonstrate its efficiency, but very few patients are doing the necessary training due to a lack of motivation and old fashion equipment without data and real-time feedback. Airofit has solved that.
Here is a range of surveys about respiratory Muscle training and the effect on Asthma and COPD patients.
