Artist Information

Together-You Can Do It

Designed by Aboriginal artist, Wendy Rix of Wensart.

"Together" is a beautiful piece signifying working together to achieve great things. This unit is unique in that the artist welcomes people to colour in to share their experience with the piece. Parts of the art have deliberately been left blank for you to colour. We thank Wendy very much for allowing us to print a copy of the art and story to add to the packaging for those that wish to colour on paper for greater ease.

Here is a snippet from the wonderful and inspirational Wendy

"The use of footprints in my paintings represents moving forward. They represent hope, encouragement, and a journey that we all take both on our own, with our family and friends, and in our community. This design is about never giving up.

Yaama! Hello! My name is Wendy Rix and I am a contemporary visual artist living in Queensland, Australia. My family are from Goodooga, New South Wales, and I am descendant of the Yuwaalaraay people of that area. I love going home to visit the family, even though its hot and dry!

I find painting very calming, therapeutic and spiritual. I paint in response to music, conversations, colours, feelings, nature, my past, my present and my future. Sometimes I wake up with an idea in my head, other times I have an idea, but I need to work through it, so I lie quietly and pray and then I just paint, and it comes. I rarely plan too much ahead, and rarely actually map out out a painting. It grows as I grow. Indigenous artwork tells a story and all paintings find their owner by their connection to the story as well as the visual impact. I paint in a contemporary style, drawing from my history and family, about experiences and circumstances relevant to today, although the themes can translate across ages, culture and time.

I am a full time artist, but this has not always been so. I am Registered Nurse, I have been in the Army, I have worked in a ladies dress shop, worked in an Indigenous medical centre and for a Lands Council, and I have mowed lawns - sometimes overlapping :-) I raised my children as a single parent from when they were around 10yrs old, and now they are successful young women whom I am immensely proud of. I live by my motto of doing unto others what I would have done to me, and that giving up was never an option, there are plenty of letters in the alphabet for more plans."

Physiotherapy Innovations would like to recognise and thank Wendy Rix for her special contribution to the Indigenous Therabubble range.

In Australia, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are affected by illness and disease at a far greater rate than non-Indigenous Australians and are less likely to seek medical support. Creating culturally safe health practices and products can reduce stigma and assist Indigenous Australians to comfortably access necessary treatments.

Physiotherapy Innovations, an Indigenous owned business, has been creating culturally safe medical devices since 2016 when we introduced our first, limited edition, Indigenous designed Therabubble™️. We are proud to now have a permanent range of Indigenous designed Therabubble™️ units to support Indigenous healthcare needs. Enlisting the skills of budding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, we have taken our founding Therabubble™️ units and have printed brightly coloured artworks on them that relate to Indigenous communities across Australia. The aim is to engage people not only in their healthcare, but also for all Australians to participate in the celebration of our rich Indigenous culture.

Therabubble is an effective and affordable bubble PEP device that helps clear phlegm from the lungs and improve ventilation. It can be used in hospitals or at home to treat patients with a variety of respiratory conditions.

Therabubble’s patented design features fixed tubing and multiple water level markings, allowing patients of all ages to create precise and reproducible pressure. A one-way valve reduces the risk of swallowing, inhaling or aspirating water during use

Therabubble™ is a low-risk, conservative treatment that doesn’t interfere with other medications.

  • Medical-grade, microbial, heat and chemical-resistant plastic.
  • Single-patient use for increased hygiene.
  • Anti-impact and anti-spill features.
  • Easy-grip handle.
  • Long flexible tube for ease of use and comfort.
  • Easy to disassemble and clean parts.
  • Dishwasher proof material.
  • Can be recycled—please dispose of thoughtfully.
  • Australian owned and made.

The one-way valve creates a non-threshold PEP. If you wish to use threshold PEP, please refer to the assembly options in the instruction manual.
