Yes, froggymouth is registered as a Medical device by CE, FDA and SantéCanada. Its production chain respects ISO13485 norms.
Froggymouth is a device whose concept is based on the work of Eric Kandel, 2000 Nobel Prize in Medicine for his research on short-term and long-term memory. He demonstrated that 10 minutes a day is enough to obtain the desired effects through passive daily use.
Wearing Froggymouth in front of the television is often decried, and yet this is an necessary component in this passive reeducation. First of all, it helps to keep the oral plane horizontal to avoid drooling. Moreover, it encourages engammation of the new praxis in the long-term memory by activating the reward circuits.
No, that cannot be done because reading a book, looking at a tablet or doing homework involves a forward tilt to the head. The mouth is not a horizontal plane and the patient will end up drooling.
If a TV is not available in the household or while on vacation, position a laptop or a tablet on a higher surface to keep the mouth on a horizontal plane.
Parents who hesitate to set their child down in front of a “mindless” television program can thus go to YouTube or Netflix and put on a children’s cartoon or an educational program suitable to the child’s age.
Remember, the device is only worn for 15 minutes a day, keeping the amount of time spent in front of a screen to a minimum.
The blue box is for size S, red for M and purple for L.
All the information you need to choose the right Froggymouth can be found in our size tool.
Primary swallowing develops in utero. Small children swallow this way, which is physiological until chewing develops at the age of 3. So it is unnecessary to reeducate swallowing in children under 3. Starting at age 3, reeducation with Froggymouth is necessary in case of dysfunctional orofacial praxis.
The practitioner can decide to discontinue treatment when reeducation is complete. In step 4 of the reeducation protocol you will find visual indicators of automatization of the new praxis.
There is no age limit for wearing Froggymouth. Brain plasticity shows that nothing is ever set in our neurons, no matter what our age. Our view of the brain is that it is a dynamic organ that is constantly changing throughout life.
Froggymouth does not require any active participation by the patient. Reeducation is passive, and fun. So Froggymouth makes treatment easily accessible for disabled people.
Froggymouth can be cleaned under cold water using a toothbrush and toothpaste, before and after each use. Dry thoroughly and return to its box.
Do not boil it.
There are no known side effects caused by wearing Froggymouth.
A stable anatomical environment is the only precondition for using Froggymouth. Examples of unstable anatomical environments include major dental deformations or obstruction of the nasal cavities.
Several scientific confirmations are available on our website. You can find them under the results tab.
The purpose of Froggymouth is to rehabilitate swallowing and therefore to obtain the right tongue position. It also leads to nasal breathing.
It can be used as a joker in your treatment of speech disorders.
Rehabilitating swallowing modifies the tongue’s posture when at rest and leads to nasal breathing.
As the facial nerve is inhibited, facial muscles are relaxed when wearing the device which leads to improving non-verbal communication. See the video in our results tab.

All techniques are welcome when it comes to motivating your patient to wear the device every day. Be creative!
The parents make sure that the device is worn every day, but they also have an active surveillance mission during the automatization phase.
If you have not received training in the instructions to be given to parents, please consult this section carefully.
