Hi, I have one. You've reminded me to get it out, if I can find it.

It's like the breathing piece for scuba diving and diving was excellent for developing stamina and strength. In fact, my nephew wouldn't be alive today if he hadn't been a diver. He was badly hurt in an accident. They didn't think he would survive the 12 hours in the operating theatre and said his survival was due to the strength from his diving.

I should have said its just the mouthpiece, same as is attached to the hose to O2 tank.

Nick is fine now thanks, 20 years later! All the damage was the right side of his face. Just wanted to stress the difference it makes to exercise the lungs 💪

Also should have mentioned I got mine on line., possibly Amazon. I think it was around £30 - make sure you see a pic of it, it's unmistakenly just a mouthpiece. You can adjust the strength needed to inhale as you get stronger.

Haha, this is it, I looked it up & Amazon tells me 'you purchased this item on 23 February 2013' !! And, it's loads cheaper now, £15.

You've spurred me on to find mine, it's ideal to use when you're watching TV or sitting about. P
