Portable VitalStim Therapy System (Adult Product Package)

The VitalStim Therapy System is an adjunctive modality to traditional exercise that unites the power of electrical stimulation of the motor nerve with the benefits of swallowing exercises. Combined therapy allows you to accelerate strengthening, restore function, and help the brain remap the swallow. Research has demonstrated that combined therapy results in better outcomes than using either one alone.
