THE CLINIC Offers Dysphagia Management in Gurgaon

Dysphagia is defined as difficulty swallowing. Symptoms of dysphagia can include coughing while swallowing or after swallowing, choking on food or liquid, the sensation of food getting stuck in the throat, pain during swallowing, shortness of breath during feeding and onset of pneumonia.

VitalStim provides dysphagia patients with the treatment they deserve and therapists with the support they need. Research shows that the use of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) relieves patients of the emotional, physical, and financial burdens of feeding tubes-allowing a return to normalcy. It also creates an opportunity for therapists to not only manage their patients’ difficulties, but also to overcome them.

How it Benefits

A therapeutic intervention for the management of dysphagia and difficulty swallowing. The VitalStim Therapy System uses small electrical currents to stimulate the muscles responsible for swallowing. At the same time, trained specialists help patients "re-educate" their muscles through rehabilitation therapy.

The VitalStim waveform is delivered in Co-Contraction mode up to four separate channels deliver stimulation concurrently and pause at the same time.

Customize your treatment protocol by adjusting the parameters of your choice, such as phase duration, frequency, and work and rest time. VMS treatment offers even more flexibility by allowing you to sequence the stimulation in the various channels to more closely match the natural swallowing sequence.

The patient initiates the swallowing exercise with the assistance of EMG biofeedback. When the set threshold is reached, VitalStim Plus will switch to stimulation mode to increase the effort and exercise load.
