Abstract Tactile–Thermal Application (TTA) is a therapy technique designed to enhance the swallowing response in persons with dysphagia. In this study, TTA was broken down into each component stimulus (i.e., Cold, Mechanical, Gustatory), and all combinations thereof, to study the effects of each condition on measurable parameters of the normal human swallow response. Using surface electromyography (EMG), latency to swallow-specific activity and duration of submental EMG activity were measured… CONTINUE READING
