For individuals with swallowing impairment, simply drinking a glass of water is a challenge, if not a life-threatening task. The lab of Dist. Prof. Maggie-Lee Huckabee at the University of Canterbury Rose Centre for Stroke Recovery and Research, have developed biofeedback protocols and technology to faciliate swallowing rehabilitiation.
Swallowing Technologies was founded to translate the technology into clinical care.
