Weighing approximately 10 pounds, AffloVest is the lightest and most quiet device of its kind on the market today. Unlike other respiratory vest options, AffloVest provides adjustable levels of treatment intensity and multiple treatment modes. Doctors and patients can tailor their treatments to their needs, with settings that provide chest wall oscillation treatment on both the front and back of the vest.
The number of patients who can benefit from AffloVest is significant; for example, more than 10 million people in the United States currently live with COPD, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
AffloVest is available for Medicare and private health insurance reimbursement under the following Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) code:
E0483 High Frequency Chest Wall Oscillation AffloVest is now available in five sizes – XS, S, M, L, XL – to serve both children and adults with chronic lung conditions.
AffloVest requires a physician's prescription and is available to U.S. patients through Durable Medical Equipment (DME) and Home Medical Equipment (HME) retailers.
