Why Choose AffloVest?


Patient-specific therapy with 8 anatomically positioned oscillating motors to create individual pressure waveforms to target all lobes of the lungs, posteriorly and anteriorly, to loosen, thin and mobilize lung secretions. It is designed to mimic the gold standard CPT.

With seven, lightweight custom fit size variations (XXS-XXL) and adjustable shoulder and chest straps, the ergonomic fit of the AffloVest can accommodate different patients’ needs for tailored therapy that fits young children and adults.


The battery-powered AffloVest is designed to increase therapy adherence through mobility. The ability to do airway clearance therapy on the go while performing normal, daily activities can provide more consistent therapy compliance and an improved quality of life.

Measurement Instructions

  • Have the patient remove any outerwear and stand straight with arms at their side.
  • The patient should not inhale to overly expand their chest but be in a natural state.
  • Using a tailor’s or sewing tape, take the chest/bust measurement under the arms across the largest part of the chest and do the same around the largest part of the abdomen.
  • Pull the measuring tape around without stretching or tightening the tape (a relaxed measurement.)
  • Take the chest/bust and abdomen measurements with the patient’s arms at their side (not with their arms up or outward, see image below).
  • Use the larger of the two measurements to determine the correct size.
  • If there is a greater than 12” (30 cm) difference between the chest/bust and abdomen, please contact Handi Medical Supply for sizing determination and assistance.

Guidelines Based on Body Measurement

Please Note

  • Fit and sizing vary from person to person
  • Using the front adjustment straps, the AffloVest should fit very snuggly on the chest, but not limit the patient’s ability to take in a full, deep breath
  • If needed, adjust the shoulder snaps to place the front upper AffloVest oscillation motors on the upper chest, just below the collar bone

Upon Receipt

  • A 1-inch (2.5 cm) overlap of the vertical black seams on the front of the AffloVest is acceptable for all sizes
  • A 1 to 5-inch (2.5-13 cm) gap between the two sides of the AffloVest is also acceptable for all sizes

A Game Changer

AffloVest has truly changed how we handle secretions/congestion, in a way that The Vest never could. We use it in conjunction with a cough assist machine, and Peri has been pneumonia free and no hospital stays for the entire time that we have used AffloVest. We take it on vacations, day trips, without missing any sessions.
