Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) therapy enforces a resistance to exhalation at the mouth while the airway vibration technology transmits movements upstream during exhalation so that airway walls may become free from mucus. The color-coded Acapella is designed for easy use; the green unit is made for high-flow, while the blue is for low-flow. Both units allow users to sit, stand or recline while benefiting from the device. A simple adjustable dial allows users to adjust the frequency and the flow resistance based on their individual needs. The Acapella Positive Expiratory Pressure system can accommodate virtually any patient's lung capacity and may be used with either a mask or a mouthpiece Nebulizer.

My husband Frank is 71 years old. He has COPD/emphysema. His disease gets worse with each infection that he gets. His breathing was to the point where he couldn't walk 2 feet with oxygen without breathing heavily. Since he has used the Acapella there is a signicant improvement with his breathing and ability to walk around without oxygen. Of course he will always need the oxygen for his condition does not get better BUT the Acapella has allowed him to have a better quality of life. Thanks to this device he is able to function without oxygen for a period of time and his breathing has gotten better.
