Now Available - New Synchrony 3.0 with New Exercises, Faster Performance and Enhanced Reporting: click here for more information.
Developed by Accelerated Care Plus (ACP), Synchrony™ is a new
comprehensive clinical program for the treatment of Dysphagia. The program includes evidence-based protocols, proprietary technologies, courses for SLPs that offer ASHA CEUs, and ongoing support for post-acute and chronic rehabilitation providers.
Program Objectives and Benefits
The Synchrony™ program uses an exclusive electrical stimulation waveform called PENS or “Patterned Electrical Neuromuscular Stimulation” to enhance muscle strength and coordination required for normal swallowing. This patented approach is used in conjunction with the world's first virtual reality augmented sEMG biofeedback system for the treatment of Dysphagia. This unique technology, called the OMNIsEMG®, enables Speech Language Pathologists and their patients to visualize swallowing activity, and guide therapeutic intervention. Patients participate in a variety of virtual reality based exercise activities that are therapeutic, fun, and engaging. While “immersed” in these activities, patients exercise for longer periods with greater intensity, which can help improve swallowing performance and outcomes.
Dysphagia (Dys-PHA-ja) is a medical term used to describe difficulty with swallowing…typically due to muscle or nerve damage. Dysphagia impacts the physical, social, and emotional quality of life for millions of Americans and can lead to serious medical complications including dehydration, malnutrition, and aspiration pneumonia.
Impact of Dysphagia
Synchrony™ technologies and treatment protocols are based on evidence-based literature demonstrating favorable outcomes for the treatment of Dysphagia. Specifically, they address the nerve and muscle dysfunction typically associated with Dysphagia to help improve swallowing performance.
