The power of acoustics to provide effective, yet gentle, airway clearance therapy

What is the Frequencer®?

The Frequencer® provides 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.

Information for patients

How does the Frequencer® work?

For hospitals already acquainted with ultrasound and scanners, which operate at a very high frequency, the Frequencer® generates low frequency within the range of 20-65Hz and offers an adjustable intensity based on the patient's condition. Sound used at low and very low frequencies offers a completely new range of specific and targeted treatment possibilities in airway clearance.

Quick and easy set-up to begin treatment
Step 1
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.

Low-frequency sound penetrates deep into the chest

Low frequency greatly reduces mucus viscosity and promote mucus flow.

In hospital settings, four sizes of single-patient adapters are available. For home usage, the Frequencer® comes with four sizes of permanent adapters. The adapters optimize treatment on patients of all ages and with all conditions.
