What is Mobili-T?

Mobili-T is a portable swallowing therapy system. It is composed of a wireless piece of hardware that is placed under the chin, and an app that provides real-time biofeedback on a mobile device.

This is accomplished using sEMG (surface electromyography) to track muscle activity. Data are then transmitted to the app via bluetooth. This gives patients the freedom to perform prescribed daily exercises at home while electronically updating clinicians regarding their progress.

Intensive swallowing therapy, particularly using sEMG, can improve oral intake, reduce aspiration of food into the lungs, and eliminate the need for a feeding tube.

Mobili-T aims to reduce the current barriers to this therapy, such as access to rehabilitation centres, by providing a motivating, portable solution to individuals affected by a swallowing disorder.
