The Voldyne® 4000 Volumetric Inspiratory Exerciser device is used for incentive spirometry, which has been shown to effectively guard against post-operative atelectasis in high-risk patients1.
This high-performing device helps patients exercise their lungs by helping them breathe more deeply and fully, strengthening lung capacity and keeping them clear. Other benefits include:
Helps patients achieve their inspiratory target volumes with deep breathing exercises
Provides accurate measurement of inhaled lung volumes
Economical and offered in two convenient models for adults and paediatrics to accommodate a range of inspired volumes for patients
Inspiratory exerciser designed for performance, reliability and precision
- Built-in handle
- Marker to set inspiratory goal
- Calibrations are labelled on both sides to aid in patient monitoring of inhalation
- Mouthpiece holder to store the mouthpiece when not in use
- Flow indicator with smiley face imagery provides visual target for desired inhalation
- Bright green flow indicators make it easy for patients to see their results
- Expandable/collapsible tube helps patients find comfortable positions for their treatments and can be removed when storing the device
- Ergonomic, swivel mouthpiece allows patients to create a tight seal to enable accurate measurements
The Voldyne® 4000 Volumetric Inspiratory Exerciser has been scientifically designed to encourage you to perform the exercises prescribed by your physician. It allows both of you to see your progress toward improving your volume.

How an inspiratory exerciser works
Deep breathing exercise has been shown to be vitally important to your respiratory fitness. Deep breaths are necessary to reach and expand the small air sacs of your lungs. The Voldyne® 4000 Volumetric Inspiratory Exerciser measures the volume of air you inspire and shows you how effectively you are filling your lungs with each inhalation. Normally, you take many deep breaths each hour usually without being aware of it. They are spontaneous and automatic, and occur in the form of sighs and yawns.
In certain instances, however, your normal breathing pattern can change. When you are experiencing pain after chest or abdominal surgery, for example, breathing tends to become shallow, and deep breaths are suppressed in an effort to minimize pain.
In these instances, it is important that you try to resume your normal breathing pattern despite any discomfort you may have. Taking the deep breaths you might ordinarily suppress will help prevent the possibility of respiratory complications.
By carefully following your physician’s instructions and the directions provided with your Voldyne® 4000 Volumetric Inspiratory Exerciser, you will begin receiving the benefits of slow, deep breathing exercise. With the help of this program, you can hasten your recovery.
NOTE: When the Voldyne® 4000 Volumetric Inspiratory Exerciser is placed on a table between uses, the mouthpiece end of the tubing can be placed in the notch at the top of the device.
For single patient use.
