Swallow Stronger-Swallow Safer: Contributions by Dr. JoAnne Robbins and the Swallow Solutions Team Oromotor exercises have been used widely as a treatment modality in the practice of speech pathology for many decades.1 However only in recent years has oropharyngeal strengthening therapy been applied to swallowing rehabilitation.2-5 Age-related loss of skeletal muscle and strength, the condition known as sarcopenia, has been known for decades to affect striated limb musculature. More recently, work by JoAnne Robbins, PhD and others indicates that striated head and neck muscles also are affected by sarcopenia, where it manifests as changes in muscle fiber density, tension, strength, and contraction in facial, masticatory, and lingual musculature. These changes are primary contributors to dysphagia. Just as participation in progressive resistance training can strengthen limb musculature6, device facilitated isometric progressive resistance oropharyngeal (I-PRO) therapy also has been shown to strengthen muscles of the head and neck.

Carol Dweck: The Two Mindsets Carol Dweck studies human motivation. She spends her days diving into why people succeed (or don't) and what's within our control to foster success. As she describes it: “My work bridges developmental psychology, social psychology, and personality psychology, and examines the self-conceptions (or mindsets) people use to structure the self and guide their behavior. My research looks at the origins of these mindsets, their role in motivation and self-regulation, and their impact on achievement and interpersonal processes.” Her inquiry into our beliefs is synthesized in Mindset: The New Psychology of Success.
