The Oral-Motor Exercise System That Works

Originally designed and used for treatment of patients with severe facial burns, Facial-Flex is now used extensively as a dynamic resistance device for strengthening the oral-motor and neck musculature. Applications include increasing oral facial motor strength, range of motion, voluntary control, timing and coordination for such impairments as dysarthria, oral apraxia, facial paresis, oral dysphagia and facial contractures caused by severe burns. Head trauma, neurological diseases, neurological events, and congenital disabilities affecting pediatric speech language development, all can contribute to the need to improve oral facial motor skill.
