My Doctor Has Just Ordered A Vest For Me To Help With My Coughing, Anyone Else Have Information Of These? .

The company providing the vest is going to come out next week and explain everything to me and it is all covered by my insurance. Will have to use it a couple times a day. Anybody have any information, will be appreciated.

Many of the vests have good results for helping to get the mucous up and out. I've tried one on at conferences, but since I really don't have a problem with mucous, it's not something I can really judge. My understanding is that they work pretty well for some folks.
