"Threshold" Inspiratory Muscle Trainer (IMT)

Threshold IMT provides consistent and specific pressure for inspiratory muscle strength and endurance training, regardless of how quickly or slowly patients breathe. This device incorporates a flow-independent one-way valve to ensure consistent resistance and features an adjustable specific pressure setting (in cm H20) to be set by a healthcare professional. When patients inhale through Threshold IMT, a spring-loaded valve provides a resistance that exercises respiratory muscles through conditioning.¹

  • The first inspiratory muscle trainer that ensures constant inspiratory pressure load - independent of air flow or breathing rate
  • Breathing resistance adjustable from approx. 7 to 41 cmH2O
  • Ensures consistent training effort
  • Maximizes training effort
  • Proven to increase muscle strength, endurance and exercise tolerance in selected patients with COPD
