Experia® works with VitalStim® Therapy to help patients learn to swallow again. The highly customizable treatment provides visual and auditory biofeedback during swallowing for objective measurement of effortful swallows. Experia establishes a baseline measurement of muscle activity to set treatment targets. During therapy, electrical stimulation to the target muscle group is activated by the patient’s effort, creating a powerful reward-based biofeedback loop.
Patients who suffer from dysphagia after stroke and brain injury can benefit from improved swallowing abilities.
