The Tongueometer app features two assessment modules designed to measure 1) maximum tongue strength and 2) tongue endurance. These assessment modules can help determine appropriate settings for the exercise modules. The application also features two exercise modules designed to increase tongue strength and endurance.
The Tongueometer app features two tongue strengthening exercises designed to increase a user’s 1) maximum tongue strength and 2) tongue endurance. Using the principles of exercise science, the user will set a target pressure range for optimal exercise. The user can choose between the strength or endurance exercise type, and the Tongueometer app will display a meter with the highlighted target range, count the number of successful repetitions, display the pressure reading in real-time, provide biofeedback throughout the exercise, and store data for each practice session.
Currently, the Tongueometer™ Trainer requires an Android Device (phone or tablet from 2015 or later.)
