A dedicated tool for the therapist to encourage stimulation in the oral cavity following surgery, stroke or other neurological disorders.

OraStim has two heads, one smooth and one textured. Both ends are suitable to assess the sensitivity of the oral cavity. The therapist should always start giving therapy with the smooth end and move onto the textured end if appropriate. The OraStim can be bent/shaped to enable easy access to the oral cavity.

OraStim can be used to stimulate the faucial arch to improve the swallow reflex

OraStim can be used as a taste tester by dipping either end into any preferred testing material

OraStim can be used for thermal stimulation by dipping either end into iced water. Please note that the OraStim is made of plastic material and does not have the same cooling/thermal properties as metal
