VitalStim® Therapy

Dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing, is a condition that affects millions of patients. VitalStim® is a safe and effect treatment for patients suffering with dysphagia. The VitalStim® Therapy System is a non-invasive therapy to help swallowing through the use of Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES). By combining VitalStim® therapy with traditional therapy, this allows clinicians to accelerate the rehabilitation process. Research supports the combination of these therapies to improve treatment outcomes.

VitalStim® is proven safe and effective to:

  • Accelerate the recovery time from a restricted diet
  • Achieve sustained improvement and long term results
  • Improve function in patients for whom previous attempts at dysphagia therapy had failed
  • Reduce or eliminate tube feeding.
