This functional MRI was taken by Dr. Pans at the Liège University Hospital Center on a 35-year-old patient and it demontrates the automatization of the new praxis. After wearing it for one month, the sensorimotor regions involved in secondary swallowing are activated with and without the device.
This functional MRI was performed on a 6-year-old child by Dr. Gaillard at Necker Hospital in Paris.
It highlights stimulation of the area controlling secondary swallowing starting with the first use of Froggymouth.
In 2015, an independent clinical study was carried out by Dr. Cornut at the Lille University Medical Center. An 80-point increase in the number of patients who acquired secondary swallowing was shown after 10 weeks, three-quarters of whom had automated this new praxis.
A significant decrease of mouth breathing has been noted (60%).
This 4-year-old little boy was one of the first patients treated with Froggymouth. He was subject to repeated swallowing incidents, making reeducation urgent, but as he suffered from cerebral palsy, conscious approaches to reeducation had failed. Wearing Froggymouth for 15 minutes a day for 14 days eliminated the dysfunction and ensured the development of good orofacial praxis. This improvement affected not only the primary functions (chewing, swallowing), but also complex communication (expressions of emotion and nonverbal communication) that can be seen in the video. Dr. Fellus ordered continued use of the device for another 6 weeks to ensure that the rapidly-obtained results would last.
