Default "The Vest"

> Shortly after diagnoses, we got introduced to "The Vest" are any of you familiar with this? It has really helped him in getting out all the mucus, we do it every morning. I just haven't read anything on here about one, so was just curious... Anyone with trouble coughing up stuff and has an out of control gag reflex, should really ask their Dr. bout this

ran into this earlier. Anyone know what this 'vest' is?

Max,
I received a booklet from my local ALS clinic that contains info on the vest. It's called a Chest Physiotherapy Vest. You might check with your clinic for more info
