Ampcare effective swallowing protocol: treatment for oropharyngeal dysphagia in adults

What is it?
Ampcare’s effective swallowing protocol is a form of therapy that delivers a low-level electrical current (known as transcutaneous neuromuscular electrical stimulation) through the skin to the muscles in the neck, most usually used on adults presenting with swallowing difficulties after a stroke. The aim of treatment is to strengthen the muscles involved in swallowing by increasing movement, stimulating muscle contractions and re-educating the muscles.
