Objective: This study explored the effect of facial and submental neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) in individuals with lingual, labial and buccal weakness.


Method: An ABC/ACB design was used. Two male participants who acquired cerebrovascular accident (60 years) involved in this study. Both engaged in 2 treatment phases. One phase included performing an oral motor exercise program in conjunction with the NMES. Second phase included performing only oral motor exercise program.


Results: Submental NMES did not have any effect on lingual strength. However, facial NMES had positive effect on labial strength in the 2 participants.
