Airofit has developed a product – the Airofit Breathing Trainer – which has proven to trigger an impressive 4-8% increase in performance for elite athletes ranging from swimming to cycling to cross-fit and there are strong indications for a significant effect on patients suffering from COPD, asthma, as well as for patients who are about to undergo or have already had cardiac surgery.

Starting from the existing Airofit Breathing Trainer device and associated app, Airofit aims to improve its Trainer device targeting patients with different types of respiratory disease.
