About the VibraVM for Improved Lung Health

The VibraVM can be used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in horses, which can be emphysema, chronic bronchitis, or even both. Recurrent airway obstruction (ROA), often referred to as asthma for horses, can also benefit from treatments with the VibraVM. ROA is an allergic respiratory disease with horses having chronic cough and nasal discharge, known as heaves and broken wind.

For horses classified as bleeders, meaning they have exercised induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH), the VibraVM device has been reported to help dislodge old blood collected in the lungs for maximum oxygenation.

Another use for the VibraVM is for horses that could benefit from better oxygen utilization, such as clearing the lungs of irritants in horses that work and live in dusty environments. The VibraVM has also been used to clear up acute conditions, such as pneumonia and influenza.

What It Is

The VibraVM is a physiotherapy device for respiratory conditions. The VibraVM is a patented drug-free method for clearing lung passages and relaxing the long, smooth muscles of the airways that can become restricted. In technical terms, it is an acoustic airway clearance device.

How It Works

The VibraVM uses audible sound and a mix of frequencies to break up mucous collected in the lungs. It also has a massage mode that acts as a natural bronchodilator, which promotes the opening of the airway passages.

How It Is Applied

The small handheld VibraVM has several different detachable applicators. For horses, the primary applicator is the Open Nose Applicator. This accessory has an open end, which is placed over one of the horse’s nostrils.
