The Computational Deglutition Lab is an interdisciplinary research team consisting of speech-language pathologists and medical engineers at the University of Pittsburgh. Our lab aims to improve assessment, treatment, and quality of life for people with swallowing disorders by using swallow kinematic analysis and computational modeling techniques.
Current research work in the lab is focused on improving swallow screening techniques and biofeedback for dysphagia therapy. We use high resolution cervical auscultation to investigate the association between acoustic and vibratory signals and physiological events that occur during swallowing.
