The product is often prescribed to patients in the hospital who are in need of lung expansion therapy, with a mouthpiece and goals levels designed to help deeper breath in and open up the alveoli (air sacs) in the lungs. 

A source told MailOnline: ‘Simon has been using this type of breathing equipment for some time, it’s not been prescribed as part of the rehab from his bike fall.

‘He appreciates the benefits and being a heavy smoker for a number of years it improves his air flow. He’s got no qualms about it whatsoever.’

What is an e-bike? 

An e-bike is a regular bike with the addition of a battery-powered motor. When you pedal, the motor kicks in to inject extra power up to a maximum speed of 15mph – the legal limit. Any faster than that and you’ll have to go under your own steam.

Like normal bikes, e-bikes have gears and brakes. You are in full control of the motor and can switch it on and off as often as you like. And there’s no need to worry about the battery running out, as if it does, you can just keep on riding like you would a normal bike.
