We are a mobile swallow study service located in Northwest Indiana. Proudly serving Lake, Porter, Laporte counties and the surrounding area. We specialize in Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing, also known as “FEES.” We bring our equipment directly to your patient’s bedside to perform the evaluation. We provide you with real-time imaging, immediate test results, and detailed written reports with images on the same day of the study.
We understand the challenges Speech-Language Pathologists face when they have to observe a patient eating, and then make life-altering recommendations without visual support. Research shows a 70% error rate at the bedside, where the recommendations are either too restrictive, jeopardizing nutrition and hydration, or silent aspiration is completely missed, which can lead to pneumonia.
We are able to view the patient’s swallow for 1/3 the price of a MBSS done at a hospital, while a patient is comfortable at bedside or dining table, eating their favorite foods, drinks, and own medications.
