FDA registered medical device
PEP Buddy can be used as an add-on therapy to respiratory inhalers and pulmonary rehabilitation for COPD.
Almost 4 in 5 (72%) people showed meaningful improvement in their shortness of breath, and they also had improved quality of life due to better control of their breathing.
Among people who had a drop in their oxygen levels when they were walking, PEP Buddy prevented the drop in oxygen in 1 out of 3 people.
“We’ve been able to see how PEP Buddy is a small, easy-to-use device that can make a big impact in someone’s life,” says Dr. Zafar.
What the Health Professionals are Saying
“As a primary care doc, I see people with COPD who are limited in daily life because of their symptoms and shortness of breath. Recently I came across PEP Buddy and offered it to one of my patient. It has made a world of a difference for her life. I was impressed to see these results with such an affordable device! Will recommend to other patients as well. Kudos!”
“As a respiratory therapist working in pulmonary rehab, I found that some of my patients were never quite able to catch on to the pursed-lip breathing technique. And those who were doing it well still wondered if they could get more benefit.
PEP Buddy is a hands-free, easy-to-use device that works like pursed-lip breathing – only better! And we all know that can go a long way to help you do more things you want to do, instead of working so hard just to breathe.”
“As a lung doctor, I have found PEP buddy very helpful for my patients. It is easy to use and gives people a tool that they can take with them wherever they go. It is safe, effective, and has been shown to potentially improve oxygen levels for some of them.”
