Automatic beverage thickener for dysphagia support
Quick and convenient solution for thickening beverages for people who have difficulties in swallowing
Automatic beverage thickening feature
To make a beverage with the appropriate thickness, you need to be careful about the type of beverage, brand of thickener, temperature, and stirring time. Swallowee determines the type, amount, and temperature of the beverage, and automatically measures the optimal amount of thickener. The entire process is automatic, from adding the thickener to stirring.
3 steps for simple, consistent thickening
1. Pour your beverage of choice into the dedicated cup.
2. Place the cup on the stirring base with the muddler in it.
3. Select thickness and start.
Remove the muddler, and it’s done.
Swallowing exercises by vocalization
After stirring, you can practice vocalization according to Swallowee’s instructions for the time required for the thickness to stabilize. This stretches the muscles needed for drinking and helps to prevent aspiration. In the future, Two-way communication will be possible between Swallowee and users. Swallowing exercises can be more enjoyable through daily conversation.
*Plan to have speech therapist as the supervisor.
