VitalStim Therapy®

A breakthrough therapy for the treatment of dysphagia (difficulty swallowing),
developed in response to the 15 million Americans living with dysphagia today.

The VitalStim® Therapy System is a breakthrough therapy for the treatment of dysphagia (difficulty swallowing). It was developed in response to the 15 million Americans living with dysphagia today. The VitalStim® Therapy System involves the administration of small, electrical impulses to the swallowing muscles in the throat through electrodes attached to the skin overlaying the musculature. The therapist determines which muscles would benefit from this facilitation through a patient evaluation. The patient exercises the swallowing muscles for periods of up to one hour while receiving concurrent VitalStim. The VitalStim® Therapy System when applied in this manner, increases muscle strength, accelerates cortical organization, and increases the effectiveness of the exercise therapy.
