Rehabilitation & Asthma
Swimming is considered to be particularly gentle on joints and ligaments. At the same time, it is excellent for building muscle and fitness. It is therefore ideal for anyone who has had to accept restricted movement for a long time, for example due to an injury or a herniated disc. Swimming is proven to be one of the healthiest sports.
Freestyle swimming is considered one of the healthiest swimming styles, but relatively few people master the technique properly. The reason is the complexity of breathing, which is why breast or backstroke is usually recommended by physiotherapists and orthopedists. Unfortunately, breaststroke can lead to improper strain on the cervical spine and knee joints.
That changes from now on! The Powerbreather makes crawl swimming easier and breaststroke healthier.
The swimmer is continuously supplied with fresh air through the two tubes of the Powerbreather, while the head lies relaxed in the water and the neck can be kept straight. On the one hand, this eliminates the danger of overstretching and wear and tear on the cervical spine and, on the other hand, the best conditions are created for freestyle swimming, since the head no longer has to be turned to breathe.
Asthma & COPD
For people who suffer from lung diseases such as asthma or COPD, swimming and breathing exercises have a particularly positive effect on the course of the disease. Various studies have shown, among other things, that more endurance, quality of life and stamina in coping with everyday activities can be achieved with swimming than with conventional exercise training in the dry.
With the Powerbreather, swimming is significantly simplified for asthmatics and COPD patients and is healthier to practice. At the same time, the Powerbreather serves as a breathing trainer while swimming. The valve technology of the AMEO FRESH AIR SYSTEM requires learning active diaphragmatic breathing – also known as building breathing – while swimming. In this way, two of the most effective therapeutic measures are optimally combined: swimming and breathing training.
We receive feedback from many of our customers who suffer from asthma or COPD that their condition has improved significantly since they have been swimming with the Powerbreather.
