Artist Information

Misty Levett is the mother of two young children and was first inspired to experiment in her artwork whilst educating her children about and celebrating NAIDOC week several years ago. Since then, her family in law have encouraged her to continue with her artwork as they recognised the talent she had. Her husband, Colin Ryder, is also an artist and together they have a Facebook page where you can view and purchase their work at Perth Modern Aboriginal Art.

Misty is a Yamitji woman who was born in Kalgoorlie and raised in Geraldton which was also her Mother’s country. Misty has a rich geographical cultural span with her Grandfather being a Bardi man from Dampier Peninsula and raised in Broome and Grandmother a Noongar woman from Northam/Clackline area. Through her artwork, Misty has a very strong spiritual connection where she continues to learn and be inspired to learn more about her Indigenous culture. Her Grandfather’s clan are Salt Water People and this has inspired her work of the Turtle on the Therabubble and highlights this connection.

The second addition to our permanent Indigenous Therabubble™️ range depicts a brightly coloured blue and yellow sea turtle which is significant to her grandfather who is a Bardi man- The Salt Water People. Misty has really enjoyed doing her art and it makes her feel a sense of calm as well as having a sense of connection with her culture through the different symbols and animals used. She particularly enjoys being able to contribute to the ongoing education of Indigenous culture through her art with her family and others. Misty has had experience in both the health care and educational settings and through her artwork is now inspired to do further work in the Indigenous Health Care Setting. Check out her incredible artworks on Facebook by searching Perth Modern Aboriginal Art.

Physiotherapy Innovations would like to recognise and thank Misty Levett 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.
