OBJECTIVE Intrarater and interrater reliability is crucial to the quality of diagnostic and therapy-effect studies. This paper reports on a systematic review of studies on intrarater and interrater reliability for measurements in videofluoroscopy of swallowing. The aim of this review was to summarize and qualitatively analyze published studies on that(More)
OBJECTIVES This study compared the effect of transcutaneous electrical stimulation (TES) amplitude on timing of lingual-palatal and pharyngeal peak pressures during swallowing in healthy younger and older adults. BACKGROUND Transcutaneous electrical stimulation amplitude is one parameter that may have different impacts on the neuromotor system and(More)
OBJECTIVE This study compared the immediate impact of different transcutaneous electrical stimulation (TES) amplitudes on physiological swallowing effort in healthy older adults versus young adults. BACKGROUND Swallowing physiology changes with age. Reduced physiological swallowing effort in older adults including lower lingua-palatal and pharyngeal(More)
Reduced movement velocity has been identified as a risk marker for movement impairment in older adults. Hyolaryngeal excursion is a key movement feature of normal swallowing function which is known to change with age and other extrinsic variables such as bolus volume. However, velocity of hyolaryngeal excursion has received limited attention in the(More)
