The SBR unit outsmarts your brain into reducing the sensation of breathlessness
The blowing of filtered atmospheric air through a plastic mask onto the face along with the vibration of a fan motor will immediately stimulate the muscles, vessels and nerves of the entire face resulting in reducing breathlessness by mechanism of action: stimulation of facial receptors (5th cranial nerve/trigeminal nerve) which triggers the brain into perceiving a reduction in breathlessness (evidence based research).
The SBR unit provides advanced technology towards improving fan therapy.
The SBR unit increases oxygen levels between one and two millimeters on a SpO2 oximeter reader.
The SBR unit is beneficial for breathlessness COVID-19 patients/survivors due to the face mask containment of virus/infected droplets.
Vibration of chest wall inspiratory muscles during inspiration (in-phase)
reduces breathlessness associated with hypercapnia and resistive loading in
normal subjects and in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
(COPD) at rest.
