This study compared two surface sensors: one that detects the electrical activity of a muscle ( surface electromyography) and one that detects muscle vibration (mechanomyography). We wanted to know which one would be best to use in the Mobili-T®. We compared swallowing muscle contractions with these two sensors in healthy participants and in patients with a history of head and neck cancer.
