The Educational Video for Individuals with Dysphagia
Helping Individuals with Dysphagia and Speech-Language Pathologists manage Dysphagia through strategies, exercises, and maneuvers.
Our easy-to-use program is a simple way to incorporate home practice into treatment of swallowing disorders (dysphagia). We've created a program to provide the patient with an audio / visual demonstration of how to perform proven swallowing exercises, maneuvers and strategies after they have been seen by their Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP). It could also assist SLPs to facilitate home practice programs for their clients.
With a clear, easy to follow, visual guide on "how to" perform the exercises and maneuvers ,our program makes it possible to incorporate home practice into treatment. We are confident you will find our dysphagiavideo to be a powerful rehabilitation tool, as well as an engaging and helpful experience!
