"I increased my accessible lung capacity by 52% in 11 weeks!"

This personal case study was shared proactively by Michael Agathagelou, a 63-year-old pharmacist based in South Africa. Michael says Airofit has helped him recover from long-lasting COVID-19 symptoms well as other respiratory illnesses and get back to his passion of long-distance cycling.

It took just 11 weeks and Mike says he feels and performs better than ever.

How can breathing muscle training lower the risks associated with COVID-19 infection?

COVID-19 is a new disease, which means almost nothing is known about how to lower the risks associated with an infection. Consequently, there is no direct evidence, that having stronger breathing muscles reduces the impact of a COVID-19 infection. However, there is a strong theoretical rationale to support the idea that having stronger breathing muscles might lower a number of risks associated with the infection, including the requirement for mechanical ventilation in intensive care. This is based on the following assumptions:

1. The people most susceptible to serious medical consequences of COVID-19 infection, i.e., a requirement for mechanical ventilation in intensive care, are also those who are most likely to have weakest breathing muscles. It’s reasonable to assume that part of this increased risk might be attributable to factors linked to their breathing muscle weakness.

2. People need to be mechanically ventilated in intensive care because their breathing muscles are unable to meet the increased demands of breathing induced by the infection. It’s reasonable to assume that if your breathing muscles are stronger, you are less likely to require mechanical ventilation.

3. Existing studies exploring the effects of pre-operative breathing muscle training suggests that making the breathing muscles stronger reduces postoperative pulmonary complications, including infections such as pneumonia.

4. The support provided by mechanical ventilation causes the breathing muscles to become weaker, making it difficult for people to breathe unaided when they are removed from the support of the ventilator. There is some evidence that (it doesn’t take as long to ‘wean’ people from mechanical ventilation if you train their breathing muscles during the process. In addition, it is sensible to assume that if you start mechanical ventilation with stronger breathing muscles, then you will be less likely to be too weak to breathe on your own when the ventilator is removed.

Evidence supporting IMT for patients with COPD

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonic Disease, also known as COPD is an umbrella term used to describe certain types of lung diseases such as emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and refractory asthma (COPD Foundation). Living with COPD limits people from doing physical activity. Airofit users who suffer from such diseases claim that they can improve their Vital Capacity and general wellbeing within weeks of starting to train with the device. The strongest and most robust form of evidence is that derived using systematic review and meta-analysis. The most recent of these for IMT and COPD was published in 2018 (Beaumont, Forget, Couturaud, & Reychler, 2018). Based on their analysis of 43 studies, Beaumont and colleagues concluded that: “IMT using threshold devices improves inspiratory muscle strength, exercise capacity and quality of life, decreases dyspnea.” In addition, a recent physiological study from the laboratory of O’Donnell examined the effect of IMT upon diaphragm activation and exertional dyspnea (Langer et al., 2018), demonstrating the basis for the physiological mechanisms underpinning the benefits of IMT. The study showed that, “8 weeks of home-based, partially supervised IMT improved respiratory muscle strength and endurance, dyspnea, and exercise endurance. Dyspnea relief occurred in conjunction with a reduced activation of the diaphragm relative to maximum in the absence of significant changes in ventilation, breathing pattern, and operating lung volumes”. See also the evidence cited by O’Donnell and colleagues in their 2019 analysis of underlying mechanisms (O'Donnell et al., 2019).

Physical performance improvements in asthmatics

Like many of Airofit users, Alex Wallace has managed to improve his performance. As a competitive cyclist, he managed to make the main team at BikeStrong-KTM despite exercise-induced asthma. You can read his full case study below.

 "After 1 week I set a new Functional Threshold Power during a race, whilst matching my previous maximum 20 minute power output for an entire 40 minutes."

Evidence supporting IMT for patients with asthma

According to the Global Asthma report 2018, Asthma affects 339 million people worldwide. Athletes who use Airofit and suffer from Asthma have positive feedback in terms of improving the way that they cope with the disease. There has been far less research on the effects of IMT with patients who have asthma. A 2013 Cochrane systematic review (Silva et al., 2013) concluded that, “There is no conclusive evidence in this review to support or refute inspiratory muscle training for asthma. The evidence was limited by the small number of trials with few participants..”. Notwithstanding, there are a number of similarities between the neuromechanical mechanisms intensifying dyspnoea in acute asthma and in COPD. Accordingly, it is reasonable to suggest that, for at least some people with asthma, IMT will have the same benefits as have been shown for patients with COPD (Beaumont et al., 2018; O'Donnell et al., 2019). Furthermore, based on the observation that, “IMT has been shown to decrease dyspnea, increase inspiratory muscle strength, and improve exercise capacity in asthmatic individuals”, a 2016 narrative review (Shei, Paris, Wilhite, Chapman, & Mickleborough, 2016) recommended that: “In order to develop more concrete recommendations regarding IMT as an effective low-cost adjunct in addition to traditional asthma treatments, we recommend that a standard treatment protocol be developed and tested in aplacebo controlled clinical trial with a large representative sample”. The most recent randomized controlled trial of IMT with patients who have asthma (Duruturk, Acar, & Dogrul, 2018) concluded: “These findings suggest that IMT may be an effective modality to enhance respiratory muscle strength, exercise capacity, quality of life, daily living activities, reduced perception of dyspnea, and fatigue in asthmatic patients”.

What is Airofit? 

Airofit is a respiratory training system that improves your physical performance, as well as general wellbeing through tested breathing exercises.

Whether you're an athlete, suffer from health issues or simply want to improve your quality of life, Airofit is for you.

Airofit generates resistance on your respiratory muscles. This causes fatigue, which is then compensated by muscle tissue growth, making your breathing muscles faster, stronger and more efficient - just like any other muscle group.

How does it work?

The Airofit Breathing Trainer provides adjustable airflow resistance to your respiratory muscles. It measures your breathing volumes and strength and sends data to your Virtual Breathing Coach on your smartphone.

Airofit is designed to be used separately from training and other physical activity. This means that you can use Airofit in any free moment - before bed, at work, after a gym session or whatever suits you best.
