Kinematics of ESP
ESP is the only technology that can consistently initiate the anterior and superior motion to the hyoid and larynx which will affect the motions of the following swallowing structures:
- Posterior tongue base retraction due to the tongue anchoring the hyoid during elevation
- Retroversion or a tipping back of the epiglottis due the hyoid’s attachment to the epiglottis
- Vallecular and pyriform sinus shallowing
- UES relaxation
- Eccentric contraction of the laryngeal vestibule eliciting a stretch reflex in attempt to increase more muscle firing
What people say about us
"Thank you, this was one of the most engaging courses I have taken in a long time. I have participated in other NMES trainings and they seemed to be too focused on the SLP being a tech than know(ing) the what, how and why we should be targeting a muscle group. I look forward to incorporating your product into my clinical practice." - LisaRose McCabe, SLPD, CCC-SLP, - Hasbrouck Heights, NJ
"Ampcare's design follows principles of swallow physiology more so than other e-stim devices out there. That's because the inventors are a group of practical and knowledgeable therapists. They have freely consulted with me over the phone regarding specific situations in treating dysphagia; their products and expertise are a huge benefit to the field and to my clients." -Mark Higginson, M.S., CCC-SLP, Owner of Speech Solutions, - Tucson, AZ
Thank you for a great course! I had my first Ampcare treatment today with a new CVA patient and all went well. My documentation will greatly improve in demonstrating medical necessity and I’m excited to have a great tool to help those who are appropriate. I’ve been competitor certified for several years and I’m embarrassed at how much I didn’t really know or understand despite attending the competitor's live training. Thank you for your commitment to our profession and our patient population.
"I can honestly say this is the only course that I have ever attended where I did not want to leave the room because I would miss some great info. This course was fantastic and every slide/topic was incredibly pertinent. Never a dull moment, and the material is incredibly practical to my clinical practice. Thank you!"
“As a provider in today’s health care environment, effectiveness, quality, and value are first and foremost on our dashboard. The Ampcare protocol, device, and electrodes deliver consistent treatment allowing patients to return to their least restrictive consistency and texture.” - Carmen Vitton, M.S., CCC-SLP, CDP, RAC-CT, - COO - Rehab Synergies
