What does the Swallow Prompt app do?
The app is a simple timer which provides a prompt or reminder to consciously swallow. It's useful for people who have difficulty remembering to swallow due to conditions such as Parkinson’s, brain injury or cerebral palsy. Users can set the frequency of the timer from every 1 second to every 6 minutes. The alarm can be set as a tone (sound) or a vibration so it's less intrusive.
✔ Adjustable timer from 1 second to 6 minutes
✘ No information on other treatments for drooling (chewing gum to encourage swallowing, oral medication, sprays and Botox)
