Video: the success of biofeedback therapy on dysphagia (swallowing problems)

The SilverFit Rephagia helps people with dysphagia to relearn how to swallow, by offering them fun exercises. It works on the basis of biofeedback: through video games, patients get a direct and clear visual feedback about the way they swallow, allowing them to improve it more easily.

Biofeedback therapy for swallowing problems

The biofeedback therapy with the SilverFit Rephagia is not only successful in the Netherlands. The Synchrony – name given to the SilverFit Rephagia in the United States – is also used within the US in different facilities. The Special Tree rehabilitation center in Detroit, Michigan, is specialized in therapies for people suffering from brain injuries or spinal cord injuries. They use the Synchrony during treatments.

The rehabilitation center made the video included in this article about treatments with the Synchrony and about the contribution brought by this system on the relearning of swallowing after a tracheotomy. A speech therapist talks about her experience and the advantages of working with the biofeedback therapy and the Synchrony (SilverFit Rephagia).
