ABILEX™ device helps swallow recovery three years after a stroke

Three years ago, JC suffered a series of strokes that led to her acquiring dysphagia and oral problems. She was left unable to swallow and verbally communicate. Three years later and still suffering from difficulty swallowing, JC and her Speech Language Therapist decided to try Abilex oral exerciser. Now, only a week after introducing Abilex™ device into her oral exercise therapy, JC is experiencing a big difference in her swallow recovery and dysphagia rehabilitation.

 

I had a series of strokes in 2015. As a result I lost the ability to talk or swallow. The Abilex was introduced to me by my Speech therapist. I love it! After a week of using it daily I saw big changes in my swallow! Not coughing on food. Stronger with Abilex!

JC deserves credit for never giving up, even after so many years with swallowing problems. According to her, three years post-stroke was not too late for her to try a new therapy, like the Abilex exerciser, to help her overcome her dysphagia symptoms.

Abilex is a new oral exerciser designed to help improve swallowing function and oral control. It is designed as an all-in one therapy tool to help with tongue strength, tongue coordination, oral awareness and safe practice of swallow skills.
