Inside the casing of the Shaker Medic Plus there is a weighted ball. By breathing into the Shaker Medic Plus, the ball is raised, but then falls under its own weight. This rise and fall action happens extremely quickly and to the user, feels like a vibration. This vibration, combined with the gentle resistance created by breathing against the ball causes a number of positive benefits. Changes in air pressure mean the smaller airways are encouraged to open, increasing lung usage and efficiency. Mucus is thinned or dislodged by the vibration and increased airflow helps this mucus to move to the large airways where gentle coughing can expel it.
This model, which marketed recently, offers an innovative design as well as the distinction of being autoclavable. This last feature makes it particularly interesting for use in a hospital and respiratory therapy services setting, as it can be used by multiple users once sterilised.
