The home health care accessory for babies is selected for investigation. The objectives are to find out the maximal under-pressure and air velocity, which is possible to reach by accessory Nosko® using standard home vacuum cleaner recommended by manufacturer of the accessory. CFD software is used for prediction of the flow characteristics of the air in the body of the accessory. Also simple experiment with the trace is performed in the transparent body. The flow characteristic of the Nosko® is obtained by systematic simulation and can be used for further engineering calculation and detailed investigation. Maximum flow rate of the air through the accessory under maximal under pressure generated by home vacuum cleaner was 2.6 litres. s-1 which is comparable with results of investigation of the human breathing in the literature source.
