Relief Breathing Difficulties
Our mission is the relief of survivors from breathing difficulties, chronic and acute illness and striving for independent home-based self-care or family care. Especially in the New Normal after the coronavirus Covid 19 which mandates self and family unit isolation and protection. LEGA® our signature and revolutionary medico-technical innovation combines core engineering principles and smart technology with proper sanitization procedures to ensure simple, safe and supremely efficient respiratory therapy and rehabilitation.
We help patients suffering from COPD, Bronchitis, Pneumonia, Cystic Fibrosis and other general lung diseases breath better by using is an innovative portable handheld device called LEGA.
LEGA is an electronically controlled medical device for effecting percussion and vibrations to a patient’s predetermined chest area. The amplified vibration waves generated by LEGA loosens the thick mucus plugs which block the air passages especially in weak patients with lung infection. Then, the cough reflex will expel the harmful debris clearing the congested lung of obstructive mucous secretions and thick phlegm usually associated with breathing
LEGA creates an effective resonance wave that travels thru the patient’s chest wall and helps loosen the obstructive mucous secretion and thick phlegm around the respiratory system, it aids the patient to expel obstructive mucous secretions from the air passages in the lung.
LEGA is patented and clinically proven in both public and private healthcare facilities
LEGA ACE can be used by patients from 20kgs and above to augment percussing treatment usually done by a physio therapist or a skilled healthcare provider. LEGA ACE is highly portable and can be self-operated by the patient or a caregiver with minimal training. LEGA ACE enables patients to increase the frequency of percussing treatment to ease breathing difficulties
LEGA KID is specifically design for younger patients from 2 months old to 5 years old. (below 20Kgs). LEGA KID is designed based on the similar principals of LEGA ACE with a more delicate and physically smaller patient in mind. LEGA KID can be used to augment percussing treatment usually done by a physio therapist or a skilled healthcare provider. LEGA KID is highly portable and can be self-operated by the patient or a caregiver with minimal training. LEGA KID enables patients to increase the frequency of percussing treatment to relief breathing difficulties
Clinically Proven and Used By Caregivers Worldwide
Indispensable medical device for caregivers at Home and in Healthcare facilities. Manual hand percussing can be time consuming, physically and a mentally demanding activity . Therefore, skilled caregivers are only limited to a small number of patients to provide treatment in a day along with their daily activities. LEGA is an easy to use device that can be operated by the patient or by any care giver with minimal supervision and training, freeing up the skilled caregivers time to perform more critical treatments. With LEGA, patients get higher frequencies of percussing treatments to relief breathing difficulties and improve medium term prognosis.

What is Chest Percussion ?
Percussion Chest percussion is a manual technique which involves clapping on the chest and/or back to loosen the thick, sticky mucus from the sides of the lungs. This will enable the secretions to move into the larger airway when you take deep breaths so that you are able to cough and clear the secretions effectively. Percussion is easy to do and can be carried out by physiotherapists, patients or the patients friends and relatives. The place in which you choose to clap is directed by the location of the sputum within your lungs, you will be guided by your physiotherapist. Percussion may be used in conjunction with postural drainage to further aid sputum clearance.
How does LEGA Help ?
LEGA is an electronically controlled medical device that can be an alternative to manual chest percussion. It tirelessly mimics hand clapping enabling patients access to chest percussion without physiotherapist .With Lega, patients can gain access to treatment longer and more frequently.
