QualiBreath can help your recovery after open heart surgery or other interventions in the chest. 
Decrease pain, decrease the risk of complications, minimise clicking and popping of your sternum bone and breathe easier with the help of QualiBreath. 
It is a patented chest harness with integrated handles for increased support that was designed by a nurse. Created specifically to help you recover better, faster and with less complications after open heart surgery.
QualiBreath supports your sore respiratory muscles, your chest and your rib cage with it’s thorax surrounding design that stabilises the sternum from the sides.

The vest features special handles that allow you to increase the support when you need it most. Coughing, deep breathing and early return to normal activity can be very painful after your surgery yet are very important for a quick and complication free recovery. Use the handles to get extra support also when sneezing or straining.

Using a support such as QualiBreath has been scientifically proven to reduce complications and pain after open heart surgery via a sternotomy.
QualiBreath is the only dual function chest support binder (constant support plus integrated handles) and it is most likely the most comfortable external chest brace available.

QualiBreath splints your chest 24/7 and you won’t need to be hugging a pillow. When feeling pain, straining or about to cough or sneeze, simply grab the integrated handles, which are always ready in the right position, to increase the support around your rib cage.

Female patients with breast size below cup D can also use QualiBreath. For additional comfort and privacy, the breast cover accessory can be added simply by attaching its upper corner velcro pieces to the inside of QualiBreath and by closing the elastic band around the chest. The breast cover is not a bra but will cover any breast tissue appearing below the QualiBreath.For breast cups D and larger we recommend using the specifically designed QualiBra Advanced - breast and sternum support

    What patients say about QualiBreath

    "I just had open heart surgery 5 days ago. The nurses put the QualiBreath on me after I complained of feeling loose in the chest and feeling like my chest was separating. Much relief was felt after wearing it."

    "I am now undergoing a recovery from a sternum repair after my first operation failed I feel that if i had been given the support vest the first time i would not have had to have it redone. I can say that the QualiBreath support vest has been one of the best thing to help with my recovery."

    "My dad went in for a very unexpected triple by pass a couple weeks ago. I grabbed him a Qualibreath and had it on standby at St. Boniface. He didn’t end up putting it on until he got home a week post surgery. As soon as he put it on you could see the relief on his face, he literally took the heart pillow and tried to throw it and asked me to remove it from the house as he never wanted to see it again lol He has been wearing the brace consistently only taking it off for laundering purposes and showering. His words exactly “the peace of mind I feel wearing this is incredible”.
    My dad had a discharge meeting the other day and I can honestly say that 2 weeks post op he looks a million times better then the pillow totters that were there for their meetings.
    Just wanted to say thanks!"

    "QualiBreath worked out great for me and I am doing great. My surgeon even let me start driving two weeks earlier than expected. I wore QualiBreath during my stay in hospital (5 days) and for about two weeks after I got home. I think it really helped with my posture by keeping my back straight. I also think the support the QualiBreath provided helped with my walking therapy because I was able to start walking "hospital floor laps" as soon as I got out of ICU. Also, I rarely used the "cough pillow" hospital provided because QualiBreath gave me the protection and support I needed. Only issues I had were that QualiBreath had been put on me "inside out" in operating room, so my sister (who had read instructions) put it on me properly in recovery room and all was well. I also had to train nurses to keep EKG wires outside of QualiBreath. Nurses and other staff were very interested in QualiBreath and asked lots of questions. Thank you so much for helping make my recovery go more smoothly and, I believe, more quickly."

    What professionals say about QualiBreath

    "I utilized a 'QualiBreath' in the study and this is the most appropriate product on the market. It is adjustable, washable and has been shown to reduce the sternal gap on Ultrasound. The subjects in the study also rated it highly on a number of parameters."
