What is Vibralung?
Can you hear it? It’s the new sound of the Vibralung® Acoustical Percussor, and it’s starting a revolution in Airway Clearance Therapy (ACT). The Vibralung Acoustical Percussor applies vibratory sound waves, during inspiration and exhalation, over a wide range of frequencies (5 to 1,200 Hz) to vibrate the column of gas in the tracheobronchial tract. As a result, mucus is loosened and separated throughout the airways, by the principle of sympathetic resonance, to promote safe, effective and gentle ACT like no other alternative.
While the Vibralung is a stand alone drug free solution it may also be used simultaneously with aerosol drug delivery.
The Treatment Control Unit (TCU) is the controller that a hand held transducer (speaker) plugs into with a cable. This is a multi-patient model that could be used in a hospital or similar setting for multiple patients where each patient would have their own hand held transducer. The TCU model can also be used by a single patient in a home care setting.
