The EMST150™ can be carried with you anywhere and used anytime to improve and maintain your muscle strength even after completing your initial training! It is calibrated so you can measure your progress over time as you progress to higher levels of ability, again, just like lifting weights. The calibration on the EMST150 is adjustable from 0-150cm of H20 (water pressure), allowing for a safe and full range of use as the breathing, swallow cough, and voice strength increases during your training program. This calibration feature allows you to measure your progress over time accurately. The EMST150 device is so lightweight and compact it can travel anywhere with you, in your gym bag, handbag or briefcase, or exercise in the comfort of home.

HOW IT WORKS
The EMST150’s exceptional design uses a unique, calibrated pressure relief valve that creates an isometric load to the muscles used for coughing, swallowing and breathing out. This is similar to the experience that occurs when you lift weights to strengthen muscles in other parts of your body. It uses the same principle as the weight machines in the gym. The EMST150™ is quite simply your hand-held “weight machine.”
WHO'S IT FOR?
The EMST150™ strengthens the muscles involved in coughing, swallowing and breathing, addressing many serious symptoms of neuromuscular diseases
BREATHING IS FOR LIFE CHALLENGES: Shortness of Breath, Dysphagia / Difficulty Swallowing, Difficulty Speaking, Seniors Staying Health and Active, Snoring / Sleep Apnea
Enjoying an active lifestyle doesn’t need to leave you feeling breathless. Now you can take an invigorating swim in the sea, play a round of golf, or enjoy a brisk walk on the beach without feeling out of breath. The EMST150™ training system builds respiratory muscle strength, helping you to breathe effortlessly during work and play!
BREATHING IS FOR ATHLETES AND ARTISTS: athletes, vocalists, wind instrument musicians
The voice and spoken communication is an essential to Professional Voice Users. These voice users are at greater risk for developing voice disorders. The consequences for even a minor voice disorder can have a significant impact on their lives. The EMST150™ has been shown to improve voice quality and decrease voice handicap.
EMST (Expiratory Muscle Strength Training) and specifically the EMST150 have been the subject of more than 70 clinical studies for a diverse set of participants, needs, and objectives.
INSTRUCTIONAL TRAINING GUIDES
Authors: Christine Sapienza, Bari Hoffman
Respiratory Muscle Strength Training is a clinical guide, intended to provide clinicians with the background information they need to understand respiratory muscle strength training (RMST). With a variety of case studies provided by well-known authors and clinicians, this text acts as a guidebook to the RMST protocol and provides practical information for use in the field of healthcare.
In addition to real-world case studies, Respiratory Muscle Strength Training includes a chapter devoted to Frequently Asked Questions, a representative sample of the devices commonly used for respiratory training, and instructions for using them in patient care.
