Home-Care Bronchiectasis

Background

In 2021, PhysioAssist launched a feasibility study for the implementation of SIMEOX®, a bronchial drainage device for home use by people with bronchiectasis who have difficulty (because of lack of time, geographical distance, limited availability of health professionals etc.) accessing usual respiratory physiotherapy services. The device is linked to telecare physiotherapy so that the individual can be trained in how to use SIMEOX® correctly and to help maintain their motivation.

The study should also allow the level of compliance at home to be evaluated.

Results

The feasibility study revealed very high compliance with the SIMEOX® device by individuals, with a median score of 9.0 (7.9; 10.0) and a median frequency of use of 3.7 (1.8; 5.7) weekly sessions.

Following these encouraging results, PhysioAssist has launched the second stage of its clinical trial.
