Cough Assist Device

Cough assist devices help overcome neuromuscular weakness by clearing secretions from the airway. The device does this by pulling air out of the lungs, creating negative pressure, and stimulating a stronger, more effective cough. Cough assist is used for a variety of chronic pediatric neurodegenerative conditions, including spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).
