I decided to see what’s up. They’re total crap. Maybe originally a one way valve meant for some other application – and failed. So some guy from the plant took home boxes of the unsold valves, his kids started playing with them and they inspired this device. It’s a plastic pipe you blow into.
The action of the ball valve allegedly causes vibration waves strong enough to maybe loosen the phlegm and mucus in your lungs as you continue blowing until you stop and start coughing up loogies. Then you’ll be able to breath more fully, maybe.
