A swallowing exercise system to improve the well-being of individuals affected by swallowing disorders (dysphagia)
Mobili-T is composed of a wireless device that is placed under the chin and an app that provides real-time biofeedback on a mobile device.
I can practice my daily dysphagia exercises wherever and whenever I want. No more frequent hospital visits. No more parking fees.
Sensors on the device monitor how hard and for how long my muscles are contracting during the exercise. Seeing the results from my exercises as I do them helps me know when to try harder or change something in my technique.
Knowing that my swallowing exercises are improving has given me confidence again. Mobili-T® tailors targets to my performance level on a given day. The only person to beat is me.
Meetings with my clinician are much simpler, we do them by phone. Mobili-T® provides meaningful insights into my progress and helps my clinician adjust my exercises accordingly.
"When I asked my patient what she likes about Mobili-T, she said "It measures stuff that you normally wouldn't be able to measure and it helps me be aware of my swallowing." When I asked her what would it be like if you weren't using the device to do an effortful swallow, my patient said "It would be more difficult to know what effort really means."
“I just want to express my appreciation and gratitude to those who worked so hard to make this idea a reality! It is truly exciting to potentially have the ability to have a cost-effective way to provide sEMG for our patients in our small community setting.”
