THE BREATHER is the first drug-free device for those who suffer from shortness of breath, speech and swallow difficulties, COPD, and other chronic illnesses resulting in respiratory muscle weakness.

THE BREATHER is the first drug-free evidenced-based Inspiratory/Expiratory Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) device used by COPD, CHF, Dysphagia, and Neuromuscular disease patients, as well as children aged 8+ and adults interested in healthy aging.

Since 1980, PN Medical has been helping people worldwide improve their respiratory health and performance. With a dedication to evidence-based science and cutting-edge research, the company has been breaking new ground for 40 years, as a trusted source of innovative products and education. PN Medical has enabled over a million people to breathe better, including those who want to decrease the burden of chronic illness or achieve a higher level of human performance without drugs.

THE BREATHER, invented in 1980 by respiratory therapist Peggy Nicholson, broke new ground as the first respiratory muscle training device of its kind, designed to provide both inspiratory and expiratory training independent of each side of the breath. The Breather is endorsed by clinicians who provide Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) worldwide as an effective way to treat respiratory, cardiac, and neuromuscular impairments.

“I’ve used it because I had stage 4 lung cancer with a tumor that sat atop my lung and collapsed it for 6 months, then a trach and radiation that caused COPD. This is the first thing that helped me get my lungs back to their new normal. Much easier to breathe now, I love it.”
Gina Mancini Horan, Lung Cancer Patient

“This device is so simple and quick to use that it should be a no-brainer for all individuals who take their training seriously. “
