Electrodes, Neuromuscular Stimulator, Dysphagia
Definition : Neuromuscular stimulator electrodes designed for use with external stimulators intended for treatment of swallowing difficulties (i.e., dysphagia). These devices are typically dedicated electrodes fixed externally over the nerves and muscles responsible for swallowing; the electrodes are attached through cables to a neuromuscular stimulator, which produces stimuli appropriate for this treatment. Dysphagia neuromuscular stimulator electrodes are used in the treatment of deficiencies in swallowing due to illness (e.g., stroke, neurologic disorders, cancer) and/or aging.
