Neurostimulation treats post-stroke swallowing problems

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

Many patients lose their ability to swallow normally following a stroke. Using alternative feeding routes and hoping that the swallowing function returns spontaneously are standard of care, which fails to address the root cause of the problem. Soon to become commercialized, though, is technology from Britain’s Phagenesis Ltd. that allows for electrical stimulation of the pharynx so that another part of the brain can take over the swallowing control function.
