A journal article published in the International Journal of Language and Communication Disorders in 2001 found that when people with Parkinson’s Disease used a swallow reminder their saliva management improved. (Drooling in Parkinsons’ disease: a novel speech and language therapy intervention. Int J Lang Commun Disord. 2001;36 Suppl:282-7. Marks L, Turner K, O'Sullivan J, Deighton B, Lees A).
Swallow Prompt can be used during normal device usage (excluding phone calls) and when your device is in standby mode (screen off) in order to preserve battery charge.

Ratings and Reviews
Success with 8yr old Child with CP on first trial!
I am a pediatric OT and had a child I was working that had no awareness when saliva was pooling in her mouth or when her chin was wet. She follows verbal directions. I told her to swallow when she felt the tickle (vibration). I placed my IPhone in the hood of her jacket. It worked! This was the first time that she had a dry chin for 30 min. Prior to this she went through 3-4 wet bibs while in school. I am telling all of my OT friends about it. Best app that I have purchased related to my profession.
