"In any electrical stimulation protocol we have to be aware of the anatomical structures and physiological process as well as the patient’s safety. Throughout my doctoral studies I had the opportunities to study The Guardian Way® approach to neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) and found great results in my research. Upon leading one of the largest Speech Pathology programs in the country I found another aspect of electrical stimulation that was important, cost. I found that a lot of locations could not offer e-stim to patients due to the overwhelming cost of the treatment. The recommended alternative electrode placement in the submental region allows me to target the appropriate anatomical structures and physiological process as well as train my own clinicians in dysphagia as well as the modality of NMES.
Throughout time, outcome data was collected and showed that the program was producing tremendous outcomes according to the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) National Outcomes Measurement System (NOMS). I would recommend The Guardian Way® approach from a clinical standpoint, safety standpoint, evidenced based standpoint and from an operational/cost standpoint."

"Every clinician treating dysphagia should attend this course. The speakers are highly intelligent and compassionate clinicians who presented the material in a way that was easy to understand. Now I feel very comfortable with NMES and I’m very excited to use this modality with my patients. Guardian is a fabulous company!"
