TonguePRESS is a resistance exercise tool for building the strength of the tongue. It uses water pressure to provide resistance to the bulb. The patient places the bulb in his/her mouth and presses the bulb with his tongue against the hard palate. The indicator rises in direct relation to the strength of the tongue's pressure. The resistance can be increased by tightening the air valve. Repetitive exercise with the device can improve tongue strength leading to increased swallow pressures and improved speech intelligibility. Can be used with adults and children. For individual use.

Micro Resistance Tubes Set
Set of resistance straw-like tubes for thin liquid swallowing practice. This set is part of the TheraSIP Swallowing Trainer but is now available separate from the kit. These micro-resistance tubes have microscopic interior diameters which require a substantial amount of effort to suck. The size of the thin liquid bolus sucked is only a very small trace amount which allows for safe repetitive swallowing practice. To be used as part of formal swallowing rehabilitation. Not for functional use as a drinking straw. Comes in three sizes. These three resist tubes fit into the TheraSTRAWs for an enlarge outer straw. This is for patients with poor lip seal. TheraSTRAWS are sold separately and in the TheraSIP Swallowing Trainer Kit.
