Our team of patient advocates, respiratory therapists and nurses are dedicated to helping veterans with COPD and other chronic respiratory conditions breathe easier.
Treating your chronic respiratory symptoms and still struggling?
- Chronic productive cough?
- Repeated antibiotic use for chest infections?
- Multiple hospitalizations for respiratory conditions?
If you’re experiencing these symptoms and effects, and you’ve been diagnosed with COPD, bronchiectasis, chronic bronchitis or other chronic lung conditions, airway clearance therapy might be right for you.
InCourage airway clearance therapy is a drug-free way to clear excess mucus from the lungs. In a registry study of RespirTech patients with confirmed COPD, patients reported after one year of vest therapy with the InCourage system1:
In addition to chronic bronchitis, symptomatic COPD and bronchiectasis, inCourage therapy is designed to help those affected by:
- Acute and chronic lung injuries
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
- Post-surgical airway clearance needs
“I had been coughing up stuff from my lungs, there was a rattle in my breathing [and] I had a couple bouts of pneumonia. A month after starting [InCourage vest therapy], my lungs cleared rather suddenly with no more rattle.” *— Steven, a Veteran Affairs patient*Individual patient results may vary
