Presented by Michael Crary, PhD, F-ASHA

sEMG Biofeedback as an Adjunct in Dysphagia Therapy

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

One of the most promising, yet under-utilized therapy techniques for the treatment of oral-pharyngeal dysphagia is sEMG biofeedback. Research has demonstrated that this form of therapy has been successfully employed in the swallowing rehabilitation of some patients with chronic dysphagia who have failed with more traditional therapy approaches. This course focuses on the strengths and weakness of sEMG biofeedback, the device and its application, and the principles of exercise physiology and learning that are critical to successful treatment. This course is presented with Dr. Groher.
