    Neuromuscular Electrcal Stimulation (NMES)

    Does anyone have experience of a Mollii suit?
    I guess we all suffer from dysphagia to some degree. Has anyone visited Vitalstim in Staffford?

  • Would get one if they worked. Is that a flying pig in one?

        You know what, Bob, as long as something doesn't harm you and you want to try it, go ahead.

        It is highly unlikely that NMES will make any difference to your swallow, but if you have money to burn and it would make you feel like you're at least trying something and, providing you've researched it, go ahead. It can improve function in stroke patients, but their motor neurons are not dying or dead.

        If you have very bad spasticity, apart from buying the rather expensive Mollii suit, your GP can prescribe meds which work.

        Do your research and decide how you want to spend any money you may have, not forgetting holidays etc.
