A closer look at suction and secretion clearance devices from market leaders Neotech, VOCSN, Seoil Pacific, RespirTech, and more.
The inCourage System, from RespirTech, uses a vest attached to a machine that creates compressions to the chest, helping to loosen, thin and move mucus through the lungs. Vest therapy is a safe, effective, noninvasive airway clearance method that clears excess mucus from lungs and airways. (See image above.)
Neotech’s patented Little Sucker is the premier suctioning device across a variety of pediatric care environments, especially in the NICU. Little Sucker features a thumb port for intermittent suctioning and has a soft, flexible tip similar to a bulb syringe. Its durability makes it ideal for home healthcare.
Ventec Life Systems
VOCSN Touch Button Cough therapy, from Ventec Life Systems, is activated with the touch of a button allowing patients to use the same circuit for ventilation and cough.
Seoil Pacific Corp
+82 (2) 325-2106
Comfort Cough II, CC20, is a mechanical cough stimulator, developed by Seoil Pacific. The device uses oscillatory vibration to help clear airway secretions in patients with conditions such as muscular dystrophy, spinal cord injury, ALS, and more.
International Biophysics Corp
Weighing approximately 10 lbs and providing adjustable levels of treatment intensity, International Biophysics Corp’s AffloVest is a fully mobile HFCWO airway clearance device with Direct Dynamic Oscillation technology for mobilizing and clearing secretions for patients with severe respiratory diseases such as bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis and other neuromuscular diseases. Eight (8) oscillating modules anatomically target the lobes of the lung for customized treatment plans.
The Monarch Airway Clearance System, from Hillrom, is a therapeutic device that generates high frequency chest wall oscillation. The therapy combines mobility with targeted kinetic energy and airflow to thin and mobilize secretions from the airways. By allowing patients to move about freely during therapy, they are empowered to take control of their therapy, and lives. Connected in care to their healthcare team via the VisiView Health Portal, patients can collaborate in their treatment planning.
The SmartVest Airway Clearance System, by Electromed, uses high frequency chest wall oscillation, a proven clinical therapy that helps people around the world breathe better, stay healthier, and lead active and fulfilling lives.
