The breathing simulator Smart Breathe™ has 2 modes. The first mode is used to overcome abstinence and for meditation. This mode has 5 levels of difficulty from beginner to professional.
The second mode is used for cleaning and training of the lungs. This mode also has 5 levels of difficulty from beginner to professional.
The purpose of this site is not to educate people about pranayama. The Internet has a lot of information on this subject. Our goal is to show how pranayama can be used to facilitate abstinence syndrome when a person quits smoking.
Training with Smart Breathe™
Hold Smart Breathe in the mouth, inhale through the nose for 2-3 seconds and exhale slowly through the device.
The exhalation should be longer than inhalation and should be prolonged with time. For example, if you start with a 7 second exhalation, keep doing this one week and then add one second each week until you have reached an exhalation that is 20-30 seconds.
Exhalation resistance is adjusted for individual needs by rotating the outer ring. You can check if you have the proper resistance after 15 minutes of training. If you have not got tired, then you have the right resistance.
The resistance should be increased with time and should reach its maximum after 1-2 months of training. To increase the efficiency of training, it is advisable to breathe with the help of your diaphragm. During inhaling, the belly bulges, during exhaling it is retracted. The inner ring of Smart Breathe™ is for adjusting the resistance for inhaling through the mouth and is primarily intended for training respiratory muscles to increase endurance, and is especially useful for athletes.
