LSI-K2: POWERbreathe® K2
– Auto-optimising IMT – automatically adapts to your training
– Training Intensity –
can be set to ‘auto’ or ‘manual’ for increasing/decreasing load intensity
K-Series Electronic Variable Threshold Resistance Training
Breathing physiology indicates that when your lungs are empty
the breathing muscles are at their strongest. Then again, as they fill up with air
they start to lose strength and therefore at high loads they may be able to’t maintain a
full contraction right through an entire breath.
The POWERbreathe K-Series uses Electronic Variable Threshold
Resistance Training to overcome this. This type of training offers a tapered
loading resistance to match the contraction curve of your own breathing muscles
right through your entire breath. This enables you to complete a full breath and
muscular contraction at an optimal resistance.
The K-Series will automatically adapt
to increases in your inspiratory muscle strength at the beginning of each
- Training Guidance – guides you to breathe at an appropriate rate
- Training Results – scroll between results for Load, Power and
- Single Breath Test – measures inspiratory muscle strength, peak
inspiratory flow rate and inhaled volume in a single breath
- Training Index – displays the percentage effectiveness and
effectiveness rating (Poor – Excellent) of your breathing training session
based upon the work you achieved.
POWERbreathe is a scientifically proven Inspiratory Muscle
Training (IMT) device, developed by leading scientists for making improvements to the
strength and endurance of the muscles used to breathe in, primarily the
diaphragm and intercostals / rib cage muscles.
As with any other
muscle, respiratory muscles can be trained so that they are more resistant to
fatigue. This resistance to fatigue results in reduced breathlessness and
enhanced exercise tolerance.
Your POWERbreathe® will be exposed to saliva all through use. We recommend that a
few times a week you remove the valve head and soak it in warm water for about
10 minutes (see POWERbreathe® Manual for full
details), but once a week soak the valve head in hot (not boiling) soapy

While training with POWERbreathe® you should feel resistance when inhaling but it should not
be painful. If you should feel pain at the same time as using POWERbreathe®, stop immediately and consult your doctor.
Some users may experience slight ear discomfort
when training with POWERbreathe®, especially if
they are recovering from a cold. This is caused by inadequate equalization of
pressure between the mouth and ears. If symptoms persist, please consult your
