Hill Rom has come out with a new vesting system, similar to the Afflo (sp) vest. Wonder how this compares to the regular vest system in terms of pressure and hz settings. Sent an inquiry for more information. Here's the link to their site.

I am looking into this too. I wonder what the warrantee is? I forgot to ask.

I saw a post on Facebook last night of someone trying out the Monarch vest. Indicated it cost about $19,000, was only for adults (age 15) and that this individual's clinic actually recommended this one as opposed to the afflo (sp), which they felt didn't give a good enough work out. I figure we'll just keep an eye on this. We keep thinking when DS gets older it'd be nice to take a trip overseas and one of my concerns is hauling around his current vesting system as well as possibly extra transformers/converters to deal with the electrical needs for vests and nebs.

Has anyone tried the Monarch Vest yet? I've seen a few online posts and people have indicated they feel they get a better workout. DS asked his doctor about it earlier this summer, so we asked them to start the process. Just got a call from Hill Rom asking questions about his health. Fingers crossed regarding prior approval process.

Unlike The 105 Vest, doesn't have a lifetime warranty. Think the Hill Rom person said 5 year and then less for accessory items (battery?). It's apparently tied into your phone or Wi-Fi, so your doctor can track treatments if they want.
