percussion devices
Explanation:
without any more context, I would say that it is for the treatment of cystic fibrosis, etc., to empty fluid from the lungs -


Implusvibrator (Abklopfgerät, z.B. bei Mucoviscidose, Pankreasfibrose)

Percussion Devices for the Treatment of Respiratory Conditions
DESCRIPTION

There are several types of devices that are intended to promote the clearance of respiratory secretion by an individual independently. The device may be designed as a vest or as a percussive ventilator. The devices may be referred to as oscillatory devices, high-frequency chest compression devices or mucus clearance devices.


Does all that make sense in this context? Hope it helps, anyway.
