Primary Outcome Measures:
  • videofluoroscopy [ Time Frame: before and after (once a day for 5 consecutive days) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    measure swallowing time before and after electrical stimulation, performed one hour per day, 5 consecutive days during paste consistency swallowing


Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: January 2007
Study Completion Date: June 2010
Primary Completion Date: June 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: electrical stimulation
stroke patients
Procedure: electrical stimulation
sub motor threshold stimulation of mylohyoid muscles

Detailed Description:

Aspiration could have fatal complication especially in post stroke dysphagia. The aim of this study is to improve post stroke dysphagia using electrical stimulation of mylohyoid muscles.

The investigators measure swallowing time before and after electrical stimulation, performed one hour per day, 5 consecutive days during paste consistency swallowing
