Airway clearance systems

The Vest™ Airway Clearance System is a unique therapy system designed to help mobilise pulmonary secretions through high frequency chest wall oscillation. The Vest™ system consists of an inflatable vest connected by tubes to an air pulse generator. The generator rapidly inflates and deflates the vest, compressing and releasing the chest wall. This technology is called high-frequency chest wall oscillation (HFCWO). The rapid chest movement mimics ‘mini-coughs’ that dislodge and thin the mucus, moving it along to the central airways. The Vest therapy treats all lobes of the lungs simultaneously and is technique independent. It can be beneficial to patients across the continuum of care, including acute and post-acute facilities, as well as in the home.

Suitable for patients with:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • COPD
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Recovery after lung surgery or transplant
