The EMST150 is the most clinically validated expiratory muscle trainer and has been proven to be effective in strengthening respiratory muscles that are essential to athletes participating in breath intense sports.
As we age, we lose muscle strength. This begins in our 20’s and includes our respiratory muscles that contribute to our breath endurance. Fortunately, we know that strength training of our body’s muscles is effective for increasing and sustaining muscle mass. However, we frequently fail to apply the same training to our respiratory muscles. Our respiratory muscles are vitally important for numerous breath and cough related functions, and critical to our physical endurance.
One of the earliest uses of the EMST150 was its use by premier college athletes at the University of Florida, where the EMST150 was developed twenty years ago. The athletes who trained with the EMST150 experienced significantly increased Maximum Expiratory Pressure (MEP) compared to those using a different device. That increased MEP is a direct contributor to endurance and is essential for athletes, professional or amateur, who are engaged in high breath endurance sports.
Simple and easy muscle strength training with the EMST150 can improve your expiratory muscle strength, endurance and overall sports performance.
Athletes can benefit from training their inspiratory muscles in addition to their expiratory muscle training with the EMST150. Inspiratory muscle strength training has been proven to strengthen the respiratory muscles, thereby improving the breathing ability and the overall strength of the respiratory system. Additionally, inspiratory muscle strength training has been proven to be efficient in enhancing physical performance and increasing physical endurance.
Inspiratory training with the EMST150 is achieved by simply attaching the available IA150 Adapter to the device making the one device capable of providing both expiratory and inspiratory muscle strength training.

See How Easy it is to Use the EMST150
“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.”
“I’ve already noticed an improvement after one week of consistent use!”
“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.”
