Enhancing Stroke Patient Rehabilitation Through Advanced Sensor Technology

A pioneering company dedicated to stroke patient rehabilitation, faced a critical challenge in accurately monitoring patient progress during therapy sessions. Traditional methods lacked precision and real-time insights, hindering clinicians’ ability to tailor therapy effectively. To address this, the company collaborated with JN White®, a leader in advanced sensor technology, to develop a revolutionary swallow therapy system. The client aimed to create a system capable of accurately measuring tongue pressure and stability during swallow therapy sessions. The existing methods lacked the precision and customization required to address individual patient needs effectively.

How JN White® Helped

JN White assembled a multidisciplinary team of engineers and manufacturing experts to tackle the challenges.

Silver Conductive Circuit: To address the need for accurate pressure measurement, the team engineered a silver conductive circuit, serving as a force sensor. This innovative circuit design allowed for precise measurement of tongue pressure variations, enabling clinicians to assess patient progress with unparalleled accuracy. When pressure is applied to the sensor, the resistance of the silver circuit changes proportionally to the force exerted. This change in resistance is measured and interpreted to determine the magnitude of the applied force. By leveraging the electrical properties of silver and the flexibility of polymeric materials, these sensors offer high sensitivity and reliability, making them ideal for applications requiring precise force measurements in medical devices and human-machine interfaces.

Personalized Mouthpiece: The sensor features a personalized mouthpiece designed to ensure consistent, reproducible, and reliable patient placement during therapy sessions. This bespoke mouthpiece enhances patient comfort and facilitates accurate pressure measurement, optimizing therapy outcomes.

User-Friendly Interface: Recognizing the importance of intuitive operation, the system boasts a user-friendly interface that provides clinicians with immediate and actionable insights into patient performance. Clinicians can easily monitor adherence, adjust therapy settings, and track progress, empowering them to tailor therapy goals confidently.

The Result

By leveraging advanced sensor technology and personalized precision, the user interface offers stroke patients tailored rehabilitation programs that address endurance, strength, and stability comprehensively. Clinicians benefit from real-time insights and customizable therapy settings, enhancing productivity and patient outcomes.The complex user interface represents a breakthrough in dysphagia therapy, elevating the industry standard by accurately measuring tongue pressure and stability. With its innovative sensor technology and user-centric design, the system empowers clinicians to deliver personalized therapy programs with confidence, ultimately improving the quality of life for stroke patients undergoing rehabilitation.

"Very pleased with your team's response to our need during the COVID-19 crisis."
Lisa L., Medical Device
"JN White has been exceptional in working with our company in order to develop the look and feel of our new MRI patient worn transmitter. We had originally worked with a prior manufacturer for an earlier version of this product with much less desirable results. JN White delivered a clean professional product at a very reasonable price on time!"
Gary P., Medical
"We had very little information to work with and Jessica James made it nearly effortless on our end to get us exactly what we needed in a timely manner."
Lexi W., Industrial Equipment
"Getting any after-market graphic overlays done always has a certain risk factor in getting it all right. You guys were helpful, patient, & knowledgeable to achieve the best end result. Even pointing out some things that might be [an] oversight or [areas for] improvements. The outcome was perfect."
John S., Technology
"The print task was between the USA and Australia and everything went so smooth. I submitted a drawing, got a return email for me to confirm what I wanted. Even though this was over the Christmas period the print was waiting for me when I got back to work after the holidays. Great job and thanks."
Matt C., Military

"It has been a pleasure working with JN White. We switched suppliers for some of our products to your company and you have given us higher quality. Excellent work!"
Roger W., Education
"I feel confident that JN White will do my order correctly."
Marie P., Government
"I found working with Sara to be a pleasant experience. We were trying to dial in the color to get just the right look on the printed substrate...Sara sent us a sample print sheet that had several variations, up and down, from the colors we specified, which allowed me to pick exactly the color we wanted. The end result product is perfect!"
