Historical pictures: The PARI BOY journey. Part 1


From spa bath to recognised therapy. The history of the PARI BOY leads through from room nebulisers to what we know today as the PARI BOY, which has become the epitome of inhalation therapy.




This is what a PARI trade fair stand looked like in the 1950s. The slogan “1 for 3” stood for “One device for three therapies”.


What was known as the spa bath did not only generate fantastic foam. Even as long ago as 1924, this natural procedure gained popularity thanks to its positive effect on all bodily functions. The “PARI aerotherm therapy” ranked as a therapeutic spa treatment. PARI gained more and more expert knowledge, which was then applied to the core area of expertise in inhalation therapy - as is possible today with the PARI BOY. 


Even in the mid-19th century, inhalation therapy was used as a medically recognised curative treatment. A wealth of scientific publications coined the term “PARI therapy”, which not only included therapeutic baths, but also covered the “PARI aerosol therapy”. This all paved the way for the “Inhalierboy”, the precursor of the current PARI BOY, which took the market by storm in 1968.



“One compressor for three therapies”, rang the PARI slogan of the late 1950s. This compressor dubbed the “Aerotherm apparatus” was not only able to bubble up bath water and enable inhalation, but also enabled the “PARI suction wave therapy”. Massage with the suction cup was used for many years to stimulate circulation and break down any hardening in the tissues.
