VHCC tests new system

VERSAILLES — Versailles Health Care Center has been chosen by its parent company, Covenant Care, to test the Synchrony Dysphagia Solutions by ACP, a comprehensive system combining evidence-based protocols, advanced therapist training, revolutionary sEMG Biofeedback system and ACP’s proven PENS e-stim technology.

Dysphagia impacts the health and quality of life for millions of Americans. Versailles Health Care Center’s speech-language pathologists now have a revolutionary tool to improve patient outcomes and recently received training from Accelerated Care Plus on this new system. Unlike any other dysphagia rehabilitation solution available, Synchrony enables speech-language pathologists and patients to literally “See the Swallow” using virtual reality-augmented sEMG biofeedback. This capability helps speech-language pathologists evaluate the specific dynamics of a swallow in real time, while guiding a series of therapeutic exercise activities that are engaging and fun for patients. Speech-language pathologists are also able to capture objective measurement data to demonstrate treatment progression and strengthen documentation.
