I am a PowerLung user and I have ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease, and my lung capacity usually decreases at the rate of 1 to 2 percent a month after diagnose. After 6 years my FVC is still at 67 percent and oxygen rate of 97 percent. My doctors are amazed and recommend every ALS patient use the PowerLung. I use it every day and know it has extended my life. I tell every person living with ALS to use it. Thank you for helping me fight my battle.
I started with a resistance of 2 on exhale and inhale. The goal with ALS is to exercise without fatigue. Therefore, the resistance should be low and comfortable. I Started with 20 reps twice a day, before meals works for me.
The results were incentive for me. My motto is to keep good muscle strong by exercise. I ride a stationary bike and use my PowerLung daily. I am still working and walking.
