What is the Ampcare
Effective Swallowing Protocol (ESP)?

It’s more than neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES)

Ampcare ESP is a protocol that combines NMES with a resistive exercise and a restorative posture device.

It stimulates important swallow anatomy, providing airway resistance

Ampcare’s ESP creates an effective, effortful swallowing exercise for your patient. Watch how under fluoroscopic imaging here!

It speeds up airway closure time

Using the science of perturbation, Ampcare ESP speeds up airway closure time, thus reducing chances of aspiration.

How is Ampcare’s Effective Swallowing Protocol unique?


Research finds that Ampcare ESP results in significant and functional improvements in swallow safety.

With our patented design, larger electrodes, and less treatment time, your patients won’t experience painful “hot spots” that other devices may cause.

Cost Effective
At $1.40 per treatment, our electrode is by far the most economical.
