Description

The Tri Flow is one of the products you will receive in the sensory toolbox. It assists the individual with self-regulation through both visual and oral stimulation. It is a therapeutic device designed to facilitate a slow, deep and maximal inhalation that promotes optimal lung expansion and teaches diaphragmatic breathing. When used properly, it can be calming, improve communication, offer visual and auditory stimulation. Additionally, it can improve balance, stability, posture and coordination through improved core stabilisation. Only use the Tri Flow under adult supervision.

To use, the user should sit or stand up straight and hold it level in front of them tilting forward about 45° so they can see the balls and assist with raising them. Placing their lips around the mouthpiece, they should take a maximal breath to raise the first ball. As the user becomes stronger they can try raising the second and third ball as well as hold the unit in a more vertical position. The individual should then breath normally and rest for at least five seconds then repeat the exercise five to ten times. We do not recommend more than ten deep breaths per hour when using the triflow. To facilitate diaphragmatic breathing it is important to keep the shoulders from raising up during deep inhalation. Instead try to encourage the user to feel their belly and lower ribs move outward.
