Here are some of our breathable products that are comfortable for patients with respiratory conditions!
Nebulizers - nebulizers are a great product for older adults who may find it difficult to breathe while sleeping or may feel stuffy. Nebulizers convert liquid medicine and send mist through the inhaler mask and making it easier to breathe.
Air Fresheners - Often the quality of air can affect a person’s breathing and sometimes it might make it harder for them to breathe properly if the air quality is poor, so an air freshener is a perfect item to fill their air with good smell and makes it easier to breathe.
A Grabber - Most older adults may simply feel out of breath when picking up things from the ground or hard-to-reach places, so a grabber is a perfect item that will help them grab things from hard-to-reach places
