In your opinion will a spirometer help expand lung capacity? Should i buy it? Want to expand capacity, talk better, less tense + enhance projection

In brief: Incentive Spirometer

Using this device does not necessary help your lung capacity.
It will however help prevent a condition called atelectasis. This is when the bottom portion of the lungs collapse a bit causing increased risk of pneumonia. We use this in a hospital routinely to help prevent pneumonia especially after surgery.
