Portex®

acapella® Choice Vibratory PEP Therapy System 

Positive Expiratory Pressure (PEP) therapy is used to mobilize secretions. PEP devices have been found to give independence to patients with chronic respiratory diseases as the therapy can be done when convenient for the patient and without the need for an assistant.

acapella® combines the benefits of both PEP therapy and airway vibrations to mobilize pulmonary secretions and can be used in virtually any position allowing patients to move freely and sit, stand or recline.

It improves clearance of secretions, is easier to tolerate than Chest Physical Therapy (CPT), takes less than half the time of conventional CPT sessions* and facilitates opening of airways in patients with lung diseases with secretory problems  such as COPD, asthma and Cystic Fibrosis.. You can adjust the acapella® frequency and flow resistance simply by turning an adjustment dial.

acapella® Choice disassembles into four, easy-to-clean parts that withstand autoclaving, boiling, and dishwashing. Your patients get all the benefits of vibratory PEP therapy, in the home or hospital, with a convenient, easy-to-clean device (single patient use)

  • Design: Works independent of orientation
  • Design: Patient may inhale through device
  • 22mm fitting: May use with mouthpiece
  • Material: Autoclave-able and boil-able
  • Adjust frequency with numbered dial
