18. Ongoing pilot study: Sleep Apnoea, Snoring and IQoro Training. Discussion and World’s First Assessment Results
This is a pilot study of the effects of day time IQoro neuromuscular training on OSA sufferers and showed promising results for a condition which is widely prevalent, costly to the individual and the healthcare services. Most patients are prescribed CPAP as a night-time breathing aid and there are no recommended treatments apart from surgery […]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
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
Lip muscle training with an oral screen can improve both lip force and swallowing capacity in stroke patients. The results support earlier findings that physical lip muscle training can be used to treat dysphagia.Read more
Training with IQoro 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
2. Reliable lip force measurement in healthy controls and in patients with stroke. A methodological study.
A prefabricated oral screen has shown promising results as a muscle self-training device to improve the lip function of stroke patients affected by oropharyngeal dysphagia.Read more
Dysphagia is a common poststroke symptom with negative effects on recovery and rehabilitation. This study has shown that sensory and motor stimulation seems to be a promising therapy in stroke patients with long-lasting and persistent oropharyngeal dysphagia.Read more
