DYSPHAGIA SUITE &
Dr. Catriona M. Steele, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, BRS-S, S-LP, Reg. CASLPO
ONLINE CLASS RECORDING
Developed by Catriona Steele, Ph.D., the software is based on the latest research led by the Swallowing Rehabilitation Research Lab at the prestigious Toronto Rehab Institute in Ontario, Canada. Dr. Steele has designed a standardized dysphagia treatment protocol involving Effortful Swallows and Mendelsohn Manoeuvres for patients who present with radiographically confirmed pharyngeal residue (i.e., incomplete clearance of food or liquid from the throat during swallowing) related to a recent stroke or acquired brain injury. Speech Language Pathologists will find the software allows them to apply the concepts of biofeedback training to dysphagia rehabilitation planning.
The download of the software suite includes 6-hours of recorded instruction (divided into four lessons). The content, presented by Dr. Steele, is designed to:
- help newcomers to sEMG biofeedback understand how this tool has been used to assist patients to practice specific swallowing exercises in their rehabilitation programs.
- guide the supervising clinician/technician on how to successful use of run a biofeedback training session (both in terms of hardware and software), as well as how to
- review and analyze swallowing EMG signals.
- showcase case studies from four different clients, each with a different set of problems that were addressed using SEMG biofeedback.
Please note that the BFE's Dysphagia Suite is an "add-on" to the Biograph Infiniti system. Users must already own the Biograph Infiniti system and accompanying biofeedback equipment (the BFE only sells the Dysphagia Suite add-on).
Thought Technology is the manufacturer of the Biograph Infiniti system and biofeedback equipment that collects the SEMG data. Purchase of the biofeedback equipment and Biograph Infiniti can be made from Thought Technology or one of its dealers.
