“Blow bottle” for breathing training at workplace

Easily accessible exercise device to improve lung capacity


The user exercises to improve his lung capacity using the “blow bottle” that sits by the desk

Blowing with a straw into a water bottle is a good exercise to improve breathing capacity. The user, who has poor pulmonary function, always has his “blow bottle” handy. It sits on a folding arm attached to his work table.

Users comments
Since the “blow bottle” sits next to the computer he does not forget about it. Every time he has to wait for the computer, he takes it out and blows a few times. Since it can be moved out of the way, there is no risk of water ending up on the desk or computer.
