More About This Product
Abilex™ Oral Motor Exerciser was developed to help improve swallowing function and oral control in patients with dysphagia or oral control issues stemming from stroke, acquired brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, head and neck cancer, post-extubation issues, Cerebral Palsy, dysarthria, or apraxia.
Abilex is designed to:
• Improve tongue and lip strength through isometric resistance exercises
• Build tongue coordination through manipulation and movement exercises
• Generate oral awareness
• Enable safe practice of swallow skills through simulation of a food bolus
Abilex adapts and builds on existing oral exercise techniques, combining them into a multi-functional tool for comprehensive therapy. The exerciser helps translate typical oral exercises into tangible tasks. Designed to be safe for early intervention and low cognition patients, Abilex enables therapy to progress from simple oral awareness to a full exercise regimen. Exercises learned in-care easily transition to home, encouraging compliance to daily therapy.
