Portable mucus clearance device
The Flutter is a small, lightweight mucus clearance device that requires no power and can be used anywhere at any time.
The Flutter device works by the patient exhaling into the device, this causes the ball-bearing inside the casing to vibrate. The vibrations travel back into the lungs, these vibrations loosen the mucus in the airways. Gentle coughing then removes the mucus.
