The app has been designed to help people who have difficulty in managing their saliva, such as those with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis who have reduced sensation. The app can be set to either vibrate or beep (a wired or bluetooth headset is recommended) at a set interval. This prompts people to swallow prior to saliva spilling from their lips.


Swallow Prompt is an easy to use professional speech therapy tool which could make a huge difference to you or someone you know. It is advised that you liaise with your Speech and Language Therapist when using Swallow Prompt.


Swallow Prompt also has a convenient widget which you can add to your home screen in order to make starting and stopping it very easy.


A journal article published in the International Journal of Language and Communication Disorders in 2001 found that when people with Parkinson’s Disease used a swallow reminder their saliva management improved.
