This app is not for layman, it has alot of medical and biological jargon that is not helpful for someone trying to perform home therapy. There is no animations, pictures or videos, just lots of words. For me a layman would not understand the therapy to perform. I uninstall it and got a refund.

You are correct, this app is not for people to use by themselves, so we're glad you refunded the app. As the description says, it is for trained dysphagia professionals only. As swallowing problems can be serious, you should be seen by an expert who can make the proper recommendations for your specific problem. We hope you get the help you need.

This app makes it easy to find a treatment with it's categorization (protocol, maneuver, exercise....) I love that it includes what each one does, the resarch, clinical implications, cranial nerve involvement and types of impairments to yes the treatment for. I would recommend this if you want to used evidence based approaches and even to use this as a gateway to further research.
