As at 15th October 2021, there was over 78% of the residents in Kowloon Home for the Aged Blind suffered from different degree of swallowing difficulties. Swallowing difficulties, or chronic dysphagia, can lead to serious health problems and psychosocial concerns. Therefore, there is a great need in providing appropriate “effective” intervention service to eliminate the negative impact of swallowing difficulties in their latter part of life.
Effective intervention can be enhanced with the use of adjuvant visual biofeedback from surface electromyography (sEMG) to monitor muscle movement during intensive swallowing exercises.
此計劃透過通過使用量度吞嚥表面肌電力量 (sEMG) 的輔助視覺生物反饋, 負責計劃的言語治療師、職業治療師能攜手監測吞嚥練習期間的肌肉活動情況，亦可以適時介入訓諫成效。
