How I Use the Aerobika and EMST75 to Keep My Lungs Strong and Healthy

Did you know that as a complete C5/C6 quadriplegic, my lungs do not have their full respiratory function? When I get sick, such as when I’ve had pneumonia or COVID, it’s harder for me to cough, especially compared to someone who is able-bodied, making it easier for the sickness to get worse and forcing me to undergo a longer recovery time.

I have the use of my diaphragm but not the muscles around it, because they’re paralyzed, which is why it’s so hard for me to cough. Check out today’s vlog to learn about a couple of simple devices that have been real game-changers when it comes to my lung health!
