The EMST150 is the most clinically validated expiratory muscle trainer and has been proven effective in strengthening weakened respiratory muscles among people with earlier stage and moderate impairment from MS. After EMST training, clinical studies indicate early stages to moderately impaired MS patients exhibited significantly increased expiratory pressure contributing to improved communications, speech, and quality of life.
MS is a progressive disease. Over time, symptoms may include slurred speech, fatigue, and dizziness. In the early stages of MS, EMST training may provide advantages in lessening the impact of these and other respiratory related symptoms. Simple and easy muscle strength training with the EMST150 can provide MS patients an opportunity to slow the progression of symptoms and enhance present quality of life.
EMST150 Key Benefits for MS Patients
- Strengthens Expiratory Muscle Strength
- Improves Expiratory Pressure
- Can Delay Symptom Progression & Enhances Overall Quality of Life
- Improved Breathing Capabilities in as Little as Three to Four Weeks of Using the EMST150
- Easy to Use, Drug-Free, No Risk Solution to Helping MS Patients Live Better
“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.”
