Purdue I-EaT Swallowing Research Clinic

The Purdue I-EaT (Imaging, Evaluation and Treatment of swallowing) Clinic is a newly established specialty clinic offering specialized services to individuals suffering from swallowing disorders (i.e., dysphagia).  The clinic is part of the M.D. Steer Speech, Language, and Hearing Clinic.

The mission of the I-EaT Clinic is to: 

  1. Provide high-quality assessment and evidence-based treatment to patients.
  2. Provide hands-on training to graduate SLP students.
  3. Lead cutting-edge clinical research.

The new in-house clinic features cutting-edge assessment and treatment equipment including: a dedicated c-arm to conduct Videofluoroscopic Swallow Studies (VFSS), a high quality Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) station, electromyographic (EMG) and respiratory physiology biofeedback devices, respiratory muscle strengthening devices, oral manometers (IOPI and SwallowStrong), and sensory stimulation materials.

Services are offered by our expert clinical and academic faculty and at times by qualified graduate clinicians under the direct guidance and supervision of our faculty. Therapy is always individualized to meet every patient's needs. Our clinic is committed to evidence-based practice and to providing patients with options that have been researched and found to be successful. Research protocols are also at times offered in our clinic and patients may freely choose to participate in these protocols if they qualify.
