The following Mandarin CTAR video and blog post are initiative of the Global Dysphagia Movement (GDM). 缩下巴抗阻运动能训练你的上舌骨肌群，以打开进食通道（上食道括约肌），让食物顺利的进入胃。
The Chin Tuck Against Resistance (CTAR) exercise works on strengthening the suprahyoid muscles, necessary for opening your upper food pipe sphincter (or known as the upper esophageal sphincter) to allow food to enter the stomach. 这个运动从袁伟琳先生于2013年创始后，就在国际间广为使用，我们希望这支影片可以提供更多执行运动的细节。我们计划将这只影片以及未来更多的影片翻成不同语言，提供世界各地使用。
Since CTAR was introduced in 2013, Mr Yoon (The CTAR inventor) has been receiving enquiries from clinicians from around the world. We hope that this video will provide the details to facilitate the carrying out of the exercise. There are plans to translate this video into different languages, so as to allow different people around the world to gain an understanding about the exercise and its proper usage. 如果你喜欢这个影片，请不吝按赞，同时记得分享及订阅我们的频道，以收看更多关于CTAR和吞咽的影片。 想知道更多吞咽困难处置的有用资讯和方法，请追踪我们的部落格https://dysphagia.sg/news-and-updates/

This training course pairs the principles of electrophysiology with traditional swallowing exercises in order to re-educate laryngeal muscles in patients with swallowing problems or difficulties. The course provides an overview of patient selection, a rationale for Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) parameter settings, and electrode placement.
Course Learning Outcomes: Upon successful completion of the training course, clinicians will be able to: • Explain Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) • Describe the properties of electrical stimulation and its impact on muscle tissue • Describe the patient selection criteria for which NMES is indicated for the treatment of dysphagia • Identify the characteristics of NMES • Discuss the properties of Electrodes • Discuss and demonstrate the application of therapeutic protocol in the treatment of dysphagia • Describe and justify why there is a continued need for traditional swallowing exercises in conjunction with the therapeutic protocol • Explain why adjusting the electrical parameters of the Biber Protocol is so important • Demonstrate eﬀective communication skills in patient education and allied health professionals regarding the candidacy and use of NMES for the treatment of dysphagia

Speech Therapy Works and Singapore Swallowing Specialists collaborated with 20dB Hearing Sdn Bhd, Malaysia to present this interesting topic Live on Facebook on 22 July 2020 at 8.00pm (SGT).
We had audiences from all around the world. Great questions were asked during the presentation. Feedback on the live presentation has been good.
Speech Therapy Works and Singapore Swallowing Specialists will organize more Live Facebook presentation in future. Topic would include speech, language and swallowing difficulties for stroke / dementia / neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson’s disease and etc. Do follow our blog or Facebook to receive notification on the future Facebook Live presentation.
We are happy to announce that the president from the OneHeart Support Group (A Nasopharyngeal Cancer support group in Singapore) has opened their support to individuals or cancer survivors especially the NPC survivors. OneHeart Support Group will provide emotional and psychological support. For those interested to seek support from OneHeart, please contact Dave at +65 9101 8223. We will include a copy of OneHeart Support group brochure in this post once we receive it.

This webinar is for healthcare providers, patients and caregivers impacted by dysphagia, and students learning about swallowing disorders.
This presentation will define and categorize types of transitional foods. We will discuss the potential benefits of improved choices, increased textures and ultimately improved dining enjoyment. Use of transitional foods in the pediatric population will be discussed with examples of use presented in specific special needs populations. The IDDSI testing method for transitional foods will be reviewed and the variation in results obtained with this test will be demonstrated between known transitional foods. We will share two research methods of evaluating the dissolution patterns of transitional foods in the oral environment will be described with relevant clinical implications. The external environment (air, humidity, length of exposure) play a significant role in the transitional behavior of these foods and ultimately their safety. The oral environment (amount of saliva, degree of tongue pressure, anterior-posterior transit time) also has a significant impact as well. Both groups of factors will be discussed in detail providing a broader scope of understanding of patient selection, and proper use. Ultimately expanding our knowledge of transitional foods will improve our understanding of use with the goal of improving patient engagement and outcomes.
Understand the difference between transitional food behaviors in the mouth in comparison to IDDSI benchtop methods.
