The VitalStim® Therapy System is a unique tool we utilize at Balance and Mobility Therapy to enhance our treatment of individuals experiencing dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing. This specialized technology uses Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) to aid the re-education of the muscles involved in swallowing.
VitalStim® delivers gentle, controlled electrical currents, which, combined with traditional swallowing exercises, help strengthen and coordinate the muscles needed for swallowing. This innovative approach is effective in treating dysphagia resulting from various conditions such as stroke, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, and other neurological disorders.
One notable feature of VitalStim® is its biofeedback capability using sEMG. This enables patients to monitor their swallowing strength visually, making therapy more interactive and aiding the muscle relearning process.
At Balance and Mobility Therapy, we believe in individualized treatment plans. Therefore, we'll evaluate your unique needs to determine if VitalStim® could play a pivotal role in your treatment journey. Just another way Balance and Mobility Therapy demonstrates our commitment to using innovative technologies like the VitalStim® to help our patients achieve their rehabilitation goals and improve their quality of life.Learn More about our speech therapy services
