Empathy Lungs COPD Simulator  -  Educational Tool

This is a simulator vest and airway mask worn to show the shortness of breath associated with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and other lung diseases. To be used on a voluntary basis while under the supervision of a trained professional, this is a unique, hands-on simulator for short term use of just fifteen to thirty minutes, during which the wearer physically experiences COPD’s shallow breathing, as well as the emotional distress from the feeling of “not getting enough air".
