Neuromuscular Electronic Stimulation: Vital Stim

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have recently gained certification of use of Vital Stim for Neurogenic Dysphagia. This technique is used in the treatment of dysphagia for both adults and children. In the UK however, NICE guidelines prevent its use with children at this time. The NICE guidelines outline the need for an audit as part of the clinical governance into its use. We are participating in an audit with a group of seven Speech and Language Therapists across the UK. It is hoped that this information can inform future NICE guidelines which will be reviewed in 2018. For more information please contact us directly.
