TonguePRESS (Single)

 

TonguePRESS® is a resistance exercise tool for building the strength of the tongue. Developed to compliment the IOPI by offering a home exercise unit for tongue pressing. Studies of tongue pressing reported improved swallow pressures and strength. TonguePRESS® 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. Repetitive exercise with the device can improve tongue strength for swallowing improvement which can be documented using instruments such as the IOPI. Can be used with adults and children. For individual use. Patent US9149681B2
