Acapella® combines the benefits of both PEP therapy and airway vibrations to mobilize pulmonary secretions and it can be used in virtually any position whether reclining, standing or sitting.
It improves clearance of secretions, is easier to tolerate than CPT, takes less than half the time of conventional CPT sessions* and facilitates opening of airways in patients with lung diseases with secretory problems (COPD, Asthma, Cystic Fibrosis).

Acapella® Choice Blue Vibratory PEP Therapy System
Acapella Choice Blue Vibratory PEP Device is a respiratory breathing therapy device that vibrates to break up mucus and promotes respiratory secretions. The device can be used with the respiratory patient in any position relative to gravity, including sitting down, standing or reclined. The Acapella Choice Blue helps to open airways in patients with lung disease who have secretory problems such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Cystic Fibrosis, or Asthma. This major advantage of this product is that it disassembles for cleaning.
In addition, this Mucus Clearance Device has an adjustable frequency and flow resistance settings. Treatment times for patients can be performed in less than half the time of standard chest physiotherapy sessions, too. When patients use the Acapella Choice Blue Vibratory PEP Device, they do not have to remove the device from their mouth for inhalation. It features a one-way inspiratory valve that allows this to be possible.
