  • ABOUT THE RMST TRAINING SYSTEM - READ MORE

Created specifically for people who want to experience enhanced breathing and swallowing, the EMST150expiratory muscle strength trainer is the first of its kind. This calibrated expiratory muscle strength trainer was designed by physiologists who recognized the value in offering individuals a means to train muscles specific to their activities, and also to track their progress over a period of time. There is NO machine at the gym that can accomplish this for you. If you're in need of improving the force production or endurance of your breathing, the EMST150 can do that for you simply and efficiently.

 

  • 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.”

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.
