The NIPPY Clearway

The NIPPY Clearway is a piece of specialist equipment that enables CF patients to effectively clear their chests during a chest infection without needing to stay in hospital.  The equipment is portable and has dual uses, it can be used with children that have a weak cough, as well as lots of secretions and thanks to its portability can be used not only in hospital but also in the patient’s home and school. This means children can complete their physiotherapy without it having too much impact on their schooling and family life. 

Thank you for your support.
