PhagiaFLEX (ISO CTAR Device) for Dysphagia and Voice
Chin Tuck Against Resistance (CTAR) and JOAR exercises for dysphagia
Vocal Cord Adduction exercises for voice disorders
The Phagiaflex Device is a patented flexible device, designed to be a more convenient, less strenuous alternative to the Shaker exercise for dysphagia. Phagiaflex targets the suprahyoid muscles under the chin. The Suprahyoid muscles consist of: the Geniohyoid, Mylohyoid, Stylohyoid, and the Digastric. These muscles primarily assist in elevating the hyolaryngeal complex and opening the upper esophageal sphincter (UES) during the swallow. The Mylo-hyoid also functions to elevate the tongue and the floor of the oral cavity.
Dysphagia is a complex disorder with many causes and responses to treatments. Many dysphagia cases involve weakness in the suprahyoid muscles, which can be strengthened through exercises, but not all cases. We are very confident that our device can help. Therefore, you are welcome to try the Phagiaflex CTAR Throat Exerciser and return it within 60 days for any reason for a full refund of the purchase price.
