An incentive spirometer (IS) is used to measure how much air is inhaled and exhaled from the lungs. It is commonly used for chest physical therapy after surgeries or medical treatment for various conditions such as respiratory illnesses (chronic pneumonia,
bronchitis, etc). Uses visual and auditory feedback, while encouraging your child’s sense of industry!
