The EMST150 is the most clinically validated expiratory muscle trainer and has been proven to be effective in addressing weakened respiratory muscles that in turn cause difficulty swallowing; medically referred to as Dysphagia.
Dysphagia is a disorder of swallowing that impacts an individual’s ability to eat and/or swallow liquids properly. Respiratory muscle strength and coordination are critical, so foods and liquids can be properly swallowed and guided safely into the esophagus and not into the airway/trachea.
Dysphagia can be devastating to quality of life and can result in physiological changes that can lead to life-threatening conditions like aspiration pneumonia, malnutrition, and dehydration. EMST150 training helps improves swallow as well as cough strength.
Simple and easy muscle strength training with the EMST150 improves swallowing by increasing the strength and activation of the correlating muscles.

“Helps expand lung capacity.”
“Recommended by a speech pathologist, very simple to use to strengthen muscles in the throat to aid in breathing and swallowing!”
“A must for Individuals with speaking loud enough to be heard.”
“It is easy to use. My speech therapist advised me to use this device as an exercise to help in my swallowing and speech therapy (a result of my Parkinson’s disease). It is easy to use, sturdy, and effective. I did find it hard to blow through it at first but applying the correct amount of effort solved that problem (that must be why they call me a “blow-hard”). I continue to use it several times each day to continue strengthening the muscles I use in swallowing and speech.”
“I am using this for dysphagia therapy with an adult rehab patient. We have had great results in increased swallow strength.”
“I almost lost my voice completely by the end of the day. I have been using the strengthener for about a month. My voice is much better on the days I use the strengthener. It does take a commitment. You need to use it 5 days, 5 sets, 5 puffs in each set.”
