Improving SWAllowing After Stroke With Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation "iSWAT"


Phase 1/2 Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

In the acute phase of stroke, dysphagia (difficulty/inability to swallow) is a common problem that can have serious consequences such as aspiration pneumonia, increased lenght of hospitalisation, and death.
