Vibravest (AffloVest®)

Fully Mobile Respiratory Airway Clearance Vest

VibraVest fully mobile respiratory HFCWO (High Frequency Chest Wall Oscillation) airway clearance vest in Ireland.

Providing advanced lung secretion clearance while allowing an active lifestyle

The VibraVest airway clearance system is designed to assist patients in the mobilisation of retained secretion. Failure to remove secretion may lead to increased rates of respiratory infection, hospitalization and reduced lung function.

With a physician’s prescription and guidance, patients can tailor VibraVest treatments to their needs. Multiple settings allow for various treatment settings that serve both adults and children with respiratory diseases or chronic lung conditions. The number of patients who can benefit from the innovative VibraVest treatments is substantial.

Treating respiratory diseases with the VibraVest is as simple as putting on a button up shirt. The patient merely slips the vest on, buckles three clips on the front of the vest, and tightens the straps to ensure a secure fit. Then, depending on individual treatment needs, the patient chooses one of nine possible settings using a handheld control attached to the left side of the vest. A battery pack fixed to the right side of the vest provides power for mobile treatments. We highly recommend an inhalation treatment simultaneously, to moisten the secretions. Moistening facilitates expectoration for the patient.

Below are some of the diseases and conditions in which VibraVest can bring relief and help deliver a more productive cough:

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Emphysema
  • Post Lung Transplant
  • Pneumonia
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD)
  • Spinal Cord Injury

Lightweight and Non-Restrictive

The VibraVest leaves the user fully mobile during treatments. Users can go for a walk in the park, move around the house, or relax in front of the television.

  • Postural independence; because of the unique integral module system, the treatment does not vary with the patient’s position, unlike other products on the market. Treatments can be administered while sitting, standing, or laying down. (This is a great feature for patients with ALS or Muscular Dystrophy.)
  • Rechargeable battery pack with several hours of life
  • Weighs only ten pounds, making it the lightest oscillation vest on the market
  • Easy to store and easy to carry; perfect for the respiratory patient who travels
  • Available in different sizes, therefore suitable for children and adults

  • Three modes of oscillation treatment (Drainage, Vibration, Percussion)
  • Three adjustable intensity levels (Soft, Medium, Intense)
