What is an Aerobika type device?

Leon, I read your answer to Brucifer’s question. I was curious as to what it is and if it is useful for all stages and capabilities.

    Hi PhylissD – An Aerobika is an oscillating positive expiratory pressure (PEP) device. As you exhale through it your airways are opened and a vibration occurs that helps to loosen mucous. They’re actually very effective.

I think you’ll find this article provides a little bit more insight into these types of devices:https://copd.net/living/strategies-improving-cough/.
