Continuing Education

At Spectramed®, our mission is to lead the way in the advancement of medical and rehabilitation tools to restore function to the highest level possible to improve the quality of life for all patients. We believe clinicians and patients alike should have access to the most comprehensive therapy suite in a global market.

Guardian Dysphagia Therapy® is a program designed to train speech-language pathologists in a protocol which utilizes fundamental electrophysiological principles that have been used successfully for over thirty years in neurorehabilitation. Our students learn to apply these principles to the treatment of dysphagia across the lifespan. Guardian® Therapy was developed by expert speech-language pathologists, and it represents a fundamentally different approach to the treatment of dysphagia.
