Recently, dysphagia email list members discussed using products from the Diet Card Systems by Victor Cornelius, Inc. This company has offered food service products and services since 1978, and the company has been in business since 1936. Their catalog includes self-laminating Plastex diet tray cards, water-resistant pens, dietary alert labels, cardholders, filing systems, and other food service items.
Dysphagia therapists would find the “Precautions for Feeding Card” with instant laminate most useful. It is four-by-six inches and $23.00 for a package of 50. The checklist format on the card includes the following items:
These precautions cards help convey guidelines for dysphagia patients legibly and efficiently; however, some clinicians might take issue with the last suggestion concerning the “gargly” voice (Warms & Richards, 2000). Furthermore, some clinicians on the dysphagia listserv have found the smaller 4 by 3 inch tray cards ($21.50 for 100 cards) useful for noting diet levels, compensations and swallowing maneuvers.
