To provide effective, yet gentle, airway clearance therapy
WHAT IS THE FREQUENCER®?
The Frequencer® provides non-invasive airway clearance therapy and promotes bronchial drainage by inducing vibration in the chest walls.
This device is intended to be a component of chest physiotherapy by providing a convenient method of external thorax manipulation.
The Frequencer® is indicated for patients who have respiratory ailments that involve defective mucociliary clearance, as typically seen in patients suffering from cystic fibrosis as well as chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis, ciliary dyskinesia syndromes, asthma, muscular dystrophy, neuromuscular degenerative disorders, post-operative atelectasis and thoracic wall defects.
HOW DOES THE FREQUENCER® WORK?
For hospitals already acquainted with ultrasound and scanners, which operate at very high frequencies, the Frequencer® generates frequency within the range of 20-65Hz and offers an adjustable intensity based on the patient’s condition. Sound used at this frequency range offers specific and targeted treatment possibilities in airway clearance.
QUICK AND EASY SET-UP TO BEGIN TREATMENT
It only takes a few seconds for the patient or therapist to select individual settings and start therapy
SOUND WAVES PENETRATE DEEP INTO THE CHEST
Optimized frequency greatly reduces mucus viscosity and promotes mucus flow
Four sizes of single patient adapters with filter are available. The adapters optimize the treatment of patients of all ages and provide protection against the risk of cross-infection in hospitals.
Many patients, due to their unique or vulnerable condition, may not always be candidates for conventional airway clearance treatments. The Frequencer® provides the RT with the ability to treat the underlying airway clearance condition and provide a solution for these patients.
Ciliary Dyskinesia Syndromes
Neuromuscular Degenerative Disorder
Thoracic Wall Defect
If a patient condition exists that could cause the use of the Frequencer® to present a risk to the patient, do not use the unit except
as directed by a physician. For relative contraindications refer to the USER MANUAL.
Using the Frequencer® to treat Cystic Fibrosis compared to CPT
This study demonstrates how treatments with the Frequencer® were at least as effective as CPT treatment performed by technicians.
