MIB175 IQoro for stroke-related dysphagia

IQoro is a neuromuscular training device used for stimulating the nerves and strengthening the muscles in the face, mouth, throat, oesophagus, and diaphragm. Swallowing therapy is the usual treatment for dysphagia (difficulty starting to swallow) after a stroke. The innovative aspect is that the company claims swallowing exercises can be more accurately and effectively done using IQoro.
