Colton will deliver one AffloVest to a recipient with Cystic Fibrosis in every state in the U.S.
What is the Legacy Project?
The Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation and International Biophysics, the manufacturer of the AffloVest, have partnered to bring 50 Cystic Fibrosis patients next generation treatment!
The costs associated with treating Cystic Fibrosis are burdensome. Many patients can’t afford newer technology that is both clinically beneficial and fits an active lifestyle. Regular airway clearance treatments promote health, and mobility features help to ensure that treatments aren’t missed. The AffloVest, a physician prescribed treatment option, is quiet, light and uses a battery pack to allow for freedom of movement so its user can go about daily activities.

What is an AffloVest?
Each day, people with Cystic Fibrosis complete a combination of therapies, including airway clearance to loosen and get rid of mucus that can build up in lungs. The Afflovest Mobile Airway Clearance Therapy promotes airway clearance and lung secretion mobilization in physician prescribed treatment of Cystic Fibrosis and other respiratory diseases like Bronchiectasis, MS, MD, ALS. and other neuromuscular diseases. The AffloVest is light, quiet and allows users to go about everyday activities while receiving treatment.
How will the 50 recipients be chosen?
Anyone can apply for, or nominate a friend or loved one in the United States to receive one of the 50 AffloVests. A selection committee from the Legacy Foundation will consider applications based upon physical and financial need, and the anticipated impact of the AffloVest on his or her quality of life.
