The purpose of current investigation was identified to the effects of swallowing training with surface electromyography biofeedback on swallowing function and dietary level, satisfaction in acute stroke patients with dysphagia. Sixteen acute stroke patients with dysphagia was participated in our study. All stroke paitents were allocated in randomly to experiemental group(n=8) and control group(n=8). Both group received traditional dysphagia therapy during 30min/day, five per week, for four weeks. experimental group was perfomed swallowing training with surface electromyography biofeedback, additionally 30 min/day, and control group received only swallowing training, additionally 30 min/day. Assessments evaluated Functional Dysphagia Scale(FDS) and Penetration-Aspiration Scale(PAS) for measure of swallowing function, and Functional Oral Intake Scale(FOIS) assessed for measure of dietary level. satisfaction assessed by using Visual Analog Satisfaction Scale(VASS). In results, after intervention both group improved significant on swallowing function, and dietary level, compared to before intervention(p<0.05). After intervention, satisfaction of both group was not significant difference(p>0.05). In comparison of change score between two group, experimental group improved significantly than control group in dietary level(p<0.05). Swallowing training with surface electromyography biofeedback may be a effective dysphagia therapy to improve on dietary level in acute stroke patients with dysphagia.
