Can a simple piece of plastic cure my problem?
It made sense to me that if weakened muscles may be the problem, there must be a way of strengthening them. It made sense why it would work. I was already familiar with the concept of neuromuscular adaptions from my workouts.
I think it should be the healthcare systems responsibility to make IQoro available. The device really makes a difference.
We can see that Petter's face has become more symmetrical, that he has made progress regarding speech and that meal situations have been facilitated.
The difference is like night and day compared with when I began.
The earlier method was to rehabilitate the swallowing function was very painful and is not allowed any more, but it showed that the musculature can be influenced.
15. Oral neuromuscular training relieves hernia-related dysphagia and GERD symptoms as effectively in obese as in non-obese patients.
IQoro training is equally successful in treating moderately- or severely obese patients as in treating sufferers of normal weight. Obesity in itself does not seem to be a handicap in treating esophageal dysphagia and other GERD symptoms by IQoro.Read more
11. Effect of IQoro training on impaired postural control and oropharyngeal motor function in patients with dysphagia after stroke.
IQoro successfully treats impaired postural control and oropharyngeal motor function in patients with dysphagia after stroke. The study show improvements are still present at long-term follow up.Read more
9. Effect of IQoro training in hiatal hernia patients with misdirected swallowing and esophageal retention symptoms.
Misdirected swallowing can be triggered by esophageal retention and hiatal incompetence. The result show that IQoro training significantly improves all the symptoms of hiatus hernia.Read more
8. Effect of oral IQoro and palatal plate training in post-stroke, four-quadrant facial dysfunction and dysphagia: A comparison study.
This comparising study shows there is little difference between the effectiveness of palatal plate and IQoro neuromuscular treatments, but large practical and economic advantages in using IQoro.Read more
IQoro training improves oropharyngeal dysphagia and facial paresis in patients with stroke irrespective of time to intervention, age or gender. The presence or absence of facial paresis had no effect on treatment outcomes.Read more
5. Longstanding effect and outcome differences of palatal plate and oral screen training on stroke-related dysphagia.
This study evaluates if the oral training effect on stroke related dysphagia differs between two different types of oral appliances and if the training effect remains at a late follow-up. The result shows the improvements with IQoro are superior, and were achieved at far lower cost and in far shorter training sessions.Read more
