The Vest system provides exceptionally consistent, easy-to-use therapy. Through high-frequency chest wall oscillation technology, the Vest system dislodges mucus from the bronchial walls, thins and mobilizes secretions, and mobilizes mucus from the smaller to larger airways, where it can be cleared by coughing or suctioning.
The Vest system consists of an inflatable vest (not included) connected by tubes (not included) to an air-pulse generator. The generator rapidly inflates and deflates the vest, compressing and releasing the chest wall up to 25 times per second. This technology is called high-frequency chest wall oscillation. The rapid chest movements mimics "mini-coughs” that dislodge and thin the mucus, moving it along to the central airways. The Vest therapy treats all lobes of the lungs simultaneously and is technique-independent.
The Vest system has been in use since 1988. More than 80 clinical trials demonstrate the effectiveness of the HFCWO therapy for patients with a variety of conditions. In addition, over a dozen studies have demonstrated that the Vest system clears mucus more effectively and helps to maintain or improve pulmonary function better than conventional chest physiotherapy.
