DEEP OSCILLATION® In the treatment of Cystic Fibrosis

With sincere thanks to Dr. med. H. G. Posselt, Department of General Paediatrics, Klinikum der Johann Wolfgang Goethe University, Frankfurt/Main, Germany.

"We have been using the HIVAMAT® 200 for 6 months with great success among other physiotherapeutic measures for cystic fibrosis in outpatient care.  We observed that especially small patients accept therapy with the HIVAMAT® 200 noticeably better than manual physiotherapy (postural drainage, tapotement).  Secretory mobilisation is as good as with tapotement.  In older patients, especially in critically ill patients with clear dyspnea and physical prostration; HIVAMAT® 200 also offers very good therapeutic possibilities.  Without putting too much strain on the patient, a vibration is caused with penetrates the thorax deeply and has a secretolytic effect, this way the patient experience an efficient support and relief in secretory mobilisation.

Our clinical experience up to now has shown that the HIVAMAT® 200 system may present a significant improvement in physiotherapy of cystic fibrosis.  We therefore explicitly recommend the application of the HIVAMAT® 200 system in outpatient care"
