How about using a gadget called an Aerobika? Some of us on here use that with success. I was prescribed one, but have yet to order it. https://www.aerobika-therapy.com/

An Aerobika is fine but does not do what a vest or VibraLung does. National Jewish gave me one years ago. I was only prescribe a vest or VibraLung last year. Maybe aAerobika is sufficient for less serious cases??.
Terri, I got an Aerobica a couple of months ago. My protocol for airway clearance is as follows – Early AM Aerobika for 10 minutes then shortly after I will nebulize with 7% saline followed by another 10 minutes of Aerobika. Later that AM I do postural drainage by lying flat on my back for 10 minutes or so then manual chest percussion (wife does back) followed by huff coughing then regular coughing. Works well for me to bring up sputum. I never have to cough the rest of the day. Later that evening I take my dose of Arikayce.
