Three top dysphagia clinicians have teamed up with Tactus Therapy, the leader in adult rehab apps, to bring you up-to-date information to help simplify your life and get your patients participating in an active swallowing rehab program.
The app has 4 parts:
** Therapy Finder: input the impairments identified in your patients to see the therapy options that match best
** Assessment: learn about 9 components of the swallow with helpful information on anatomy, how to assess, and the clinical relevance
** Treatment: get the details on 45+ different swallowing management techniques including exercises, sensory treatments, compensatory strategies, and therapy protocols
** Resources: information on cranial nerves, patient handouts, and anatomical drawings for education
This app is going to be so useful for the SLP in any setting who works with dysphagic patients. It is well-organized and easy to find what you are after. I appreciate the cranial nerve section and have used it in acute care to confirm my assessment and make sure I was not missing something. In the "Therapy Finder" the exercises, compensatory strategies, and maneuvers are all research-based and include clear instructions for both the SLP and the patient.
