A new way to treat sucking and swallowing difficulties in babies.

Abstract

Experience from the use of feeding plates for babies with cleft palate and from the treatment of dysphagia in patients recovering from stroke led to the design of a simple intraoral appliance. This device has been used successfully in treating twelve babies with feeding difficulties caused by incoordination, when other methods had failed.
