Comfort Cough II, CC20, is a mechanical cough stimulator, developed by Seoil Pacific. The device uses oscillatory vibration to help clear airway secretions in patients with conditions such as muscular dystrophy, spinal cord injury, ALS, and more. (See image above.)
Now available from Tactile Medical, the AffloVest is the first battery-operated HFCWO therapy that lets patients with bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, and neuromuscular diseases receive state-of-the-art airway clearance therapy on the go. Featuring patented Direct Dynamic Oscillation, AffloVest has eight mechanical oscillating motors scientifically engineered to target all 5 lobes of the lungs, front and back, for fully mobile use.
Neotech’s NeoSucker Curved is a softer, anatomically curved alternative to the hard plastic devices on the market. The N208 extra large is perfect for older pediatric patients who are prone to biting down on the suction device. NeoSucker oral and nasal suction devices feature a flexible tip similar to a bulb syringe to help prevent mouth trauma.
