Maine Mobile Diagnostics (MMD) will be providing Mobile FEES testing in the State of Maine. We are the first Mobile FEES (Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallow) company servicing the southern Maine area. The idea was born from seeing the frustrations on the part of skilled nursing facilities having to experience long delays waiting for a mobile bus to come up from far away to provide Modified Barium Swallow Study (MBSS) testing.
Multiple clinical studies have shown that FEES testing is a more sensitive test when it comes to revealing aspiration and penetration risks, allowing for appropriate diet consistency recommendations while providing a positive impact on residents’ quality of life. FEES testing examines the patient’s swallow based on the liquids and solids that the resident typically consumes. This helps the speech-language pathologist identify the food consistency that the resident can tolerate and greatly reduce the risk of potential aspiration.
The FEES test is widely considered a much more cost-effective alternative to Modified Barium Swallow without exposing the patient to any radiation.
Maine Mobile Diagnostics, and our colleague Aimee Hahne, CCC-SLP, are currently introducing ourselves to the SNF providers, therapists, and contract rehab providers in the Southern Maine area and are very excited to discuss how we can help your patients with dysphagia experience a greater quality of life.
