The EMST75 LITE, and the original EMST150 are used to increase the strength of the expiratory muscles. The EMST75 LITE was created for patients who want to begin their training at a lower threshold than our EMST150 provides. It works the same as the EMST150, with a lower pressure range of 0-75 cm H20.
For those with respiratory illness accompanied by significant respiratory weakness and/or focused on airway clearance, the EMST75 presents a viable solution for Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) Therapy. PEP Therapy can help to clear excess secretions from the lungs, reduce gas trapping and improve ventilation of the lungs. As you train your lungs and airways, the pressure you will be able to hit will increase, showing that your work is paying off.
