Improve lip seal and deactivate lower-lip muscles.
The Lip Trainer™ is designed to be used in combination with other appliances in the Trainer and Myobrace® systems to improve lip seal, strengthen lip muscles and stretch the lower lip muscles to reduce their overactivity on swallow.
Some children may show signs of lip incompetence or poor muscle tone around the lips (Orbicularis oris muscle). This problem can persist despite correct use of the Trainer and Myobrace® appliances. The Lip Trainer™ can be used for patients of any age, in combination with any appliance from the Trainer or Myobrace® Systems. It is particularly useful for mouth breathers who have difficulty closing their mouth.
Recommended daily use is 5-minutes twice daily.
