PowerLung Incorporated is based in Houston, Texas, and was formed in 1999 to develop and market progressive, threshold resistance training products for the respiratory (breathing) muscles.
The company assumed the name of its product – PowerLung. Since its initial offering of the PowerLung Sport, the company has regularly added new products to its line. Each new product is designed to meet the needs of a specific user community.
The PowerLung® Sport, introduced in 1999, is designed for someone who has aerobically well conditioned breathing muscles. This is usually someone who athletically trains four or more hours per week and competes regularly.
The PowerLung® Trainer, introduced in 2000, was designed for the individual who is focused on general fitness for health. It is an intermediate level of resistance. Based on user requests for something more suitable for those interested in maintaining good fitness and wellness, the Trainer offers exactly that. Serious musicians, dancers, actors and vocalists find the PowerLung Trainer offers training that allows them to work, sing and play relaxed for longer.
In 2002, PowerLung announced the PowerLung® BreatheAir™. Again, it was based on user input for those who are just beginning an exercise or wellness program. The PowerLung BreatheAir can actually help a beginner get started by helping them learn to really breathe deeply. This can be important for musicians, vocalists and choralists as well as the general population.
In 2003, PowerLung introduced the PowerLung® AireStream®. It was designed in conjunction with the NextSteps Foundation. With the neurologically challenged in mind, this model provides the lowest range of effort. It has been used for spinal cord injury, ALS, past-palio, past stroke and with children for speech therapy and cystic fibrosis.
In 2004, PowerLung introduced PowerLung® Washe™. This custom formulation is specifically designed to keep PowerLung clean and functioning properly without damaging any internal components. PowerLung has just introduced a new and improved formula of PowerLung Washe. PowerLung Washe is now fragrance free, hypoallergenic and biodegradable.
