3 Ball Breathing Exerciser


The 3 Ball Spirometer is designed to encourage the user to take deep breath. The spirometer provides patient feedback by showing how well the patient is expanding their lungs. This deep breathing encourages the clearance of phlegm from the lungs.

What is a Breath Exerciser and How Can It Help?

Even your lungs need a little exercise sometimes, and a breath exerciser just may be helpful.

For those living with a chronic lung condition such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pulmonary fibrosis (PF) or emphysema, in which the intake of oxygen can prove exceedingly difficult in day-to-day life, many patients may find themselves at a respiratory loss. Struggling to breathe is an objectively unpleasant experience, and for the millions of Americans that live with such chronic conditions, this reality is often a daily one.

So, what is a Breath Exerciser?

Simply put, a breath exerciser is a respiratory device used to help patients improve their lung function. For example, an incentive spirometer is a device of this sort, used to help patients who are recovering from recent surgery keep their lungs active. However, incentive spirometers can also be used by those with chronic respiratory conditions such as COPD, PF and emphysema.

Aside from incentive spirometers, breath exercisers work in a similar nature with a primary focus to improve airflow, achieve optimum lung capacity and strengthen the cough effort which allows the clearing of airways. These small and compact devices are best used as supplementary additions to disease management and can often fit in even the smallest of bags and pouches.

How Do I Use It?

For most breathing devices, the recommended treatment use is 1-2 hours or 25 sharp inhalations twice a day. Depending on your schedule, the choice for how you structure your exercise plan is up to you. However, this is exercise. In order to see results and gradual progress, you must use these breath exercisers deliberately, consistently and as directed. In a sense, you’re building up the strength of your lungs. This may be difficult at first but in order to see the other side of better respiratory health, you’ll have to work to break through the initial resistance.

If you have any questions for how the use of these devices can be tailored to your particular schedule or stage of condition, please refer to your pulmonologist or primary care physician for further direction.

Lung Exerciser Direction for use :

  1. Hold the unit in an upright position
  2. Exhale normally and then place your lips tightly around the mouthpiece at the end of the tubing.
  3. Low flow rate – Inhale at a rate to raise only the ball in the first chamber. The second chamber ball must remain in place.
  4. This position should be held for three seconds or as long as possible whichever comes first.
  5. High flow rate-Inhale at a rate to raise the first and second chamber balls. Ensure that the third chamber ball remains in the rest position for the duration of this exercise.
  6. Exhale-Take out the mouthpiece and exhale normally. relax(Repeat)-Following each prolonged deep breath, take a moment to rest and breathe normally. This exercise can be repeated according to doctors’ instructions.

What Will It Do for Me?

A breath exerciser can be a great supplementary tool for achieving your optimal lung capacity. Although the work may be difficult at first, if combined with a regimented diet and general exercise plan (think walking up the street once a day) it’s possible to reclaim some lost ground on your daily quality of life.

Today, breath exercisers are used across a variety of applications, from wind instrument players looking to improve their air flow control, to Navy SEALs and triathletes looking to increase their lung capacity when running and swimming. A breath exerciser is a notable addition to anyone’s respiratory improvement plan.
