Biofeedback can take many forms. When in daily practice, the most common form of biofeedback that I employed for dysphagia was visual. Many patients, especially those with left side neglect, do much better when positioned in front of a mirror. As a reminder, if the patient is visually impaired be sure that they have their spectacles on when employing this technique.
Space is the continual problem in all nursing homes, especially in the patient’s room. If you use a mirror as a biofeedback modality, remember that placement is critical. The mirror must be located in the patient’s natural field of vision to be effective. This is almost impossible where the over-the-bed tables are barely wide enough for the tray.
