The brand new soft cuirass offered by Dima Italia is an accessory that enables to limit the restrictions that ventilation therapy may impose on the patient’s quality of life.

The shell structure, which embraces the patient’s chest, works as a ventilation chamber.

This cuirass is to be used with Dima Italia’s negative pressure ventilator Pegaso Vent.

Its edge is covered with a soft foam to minimize any discomfort and reduce the pressure drop.

Cuirasses are available in 8 different sizes (further sizes can be made upon request) depending on body structure.

Weight and height of the patient should be taken into account when choosing the cuirass size, as well as abnormal body features such as scoliosis, curved areas or big breasts.
