Benefits of FEES
We provide research based Mobile FEES services to quickly and reliably evaluate the swallow function of patients. We bring the equipment to you and provide you with a detailed report before we leave the facility.
FEES is a GOLD STANDARD in swallowing diagnostics and can assist in providing the best outcomes for patients by decreasing the amount of rehospitalizations, reducing the need for thickened liquids and feeding tubes, and providing improvements to patientsâ€™ quality of life.
The best part is the service is less expensive than sending patients to the hospital for Modified Barium Swallow Studies.
Plus we are able to evaluate the patients in their natural environment, with their favorite foods, and work closely with nurses, caregivers, family members, and Speech-Language Pathologists to provide the best patient centered care.
