Electro Flo 5000

How many of you use this product...what do you feel is the pros and cons for this...would you be interested in learning more etc....

I have been using the Electro Flo 5000 for the past two months or so as supplemental CPT to my Vest, and I really like it. I just took it on vacation with me, and it was so great to be able to take just that for 3 days! I am so happy to finally have something that actually gets to my chest. I am very well endowed so I don't ever feel like the Vest really gets where it needs to be!

I would not use it as my only form of CPT for more than a few days, but it has been great for reducing crackles. One thing I would recommend is for it to have an easier way to hold it!

Yes, is me. I am meeting with them tomorrow and wanted to get feedback from the community as my daughter is too young to use it. I will review past posts...people seem to be very happy with it. I just don't believe people are aware that it did you come across it?

I like it as another form of cpt besides the vest. Its easier on the "beaters" b/c you just hold the thing. It can go in concentrated areas.

Anyways, I think I have answered this on another question... have you searched this topic yet? I think there have been a few questions about it where people gave some good pros and cons.

(were you the one who's friends husband invented it?)
