Our Story


There is no greater feeling than making a difference to people in need.

Our vision is to enhance the well-being of individuals around the world suffering from respiratory conditions. To achieve this, we have created a powerful and effective device that has changed lives for over 30 years. Our groundbreaking Turboforte Lung Physio is an all-natural, handheld medical device that provides positive expiratory pressure to make breathing easier, strengthen lung capacity, and help to relieve symptoms from major lung conditions such as asthma, bronchitis and COPD. Turboforte has been used for years in hospitals and by medical professionals globally, and it’s now available in anybody’s pocket.


The overall mission for Turboforte is to help people live their lives the way we all should – freely and without respiratory barriers. Proceeds from every purchase goes into the
Faith, Hope and Love Children’s Foundation of Australia – providing food, shelter and education to children in need in the Philippines. 


Our Founder’s Story: Tim Allwood


‘When I was 14 years old, I learnt that I needed to make a change.’ 

My Identical twin brother and I were pretty wild and I was heading down the wrong path in life. We were lucky though. We were introduced to Surf Lifesaving and became competitive surf boat rowers. This gruelling sport demanded teamwork, discipline, and of course, a very high level of fitness.


Most of all, surf lifesaving taught me the importance of giving back to the community, to stand on the beach and protect all beach-goers. I love the feeling of giving back as a volunteer, and that hasn’t changed in 41-years of active patrol service.


During this time, I have been fortunate enough to personally save 18 lives in the surf. As you swim towards a person in need of help, you see them gasping for what could possibly be their last breath, literally on the brink of life and death and it alters your perception and appreciation for life itself. It was this experience that showed me firsthand that
breath is life. I was pumped that I could make a “life-changing” difference.

Those 18 lives saved in the surf as a lifeguard galvanized my mission, which has now become to rescue 18 million lives. Turboforte Lung Physio is my pathway to achieving that goal.
