Company Description: IOPI Medical manufactures the Iowa Oral Performance Instrument (IOPI), a product that objectively measures tongue and lip strength and can be used for biofeedback for oral motor exercises. It is typically used by speech pathologists and otolaryngologists with patients that have a variety of diseases, such as stroke, head and neck cancer, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, Bell’s palsy, and ALS. Objective measurements from the IOPI allow the therapist or physician to justify the need for therapy, set exercise parameters using the principles of exercise science, document the results, and evaluate program effectiveness.

The IOPI Medical brand is synonymous with objective tongue strength and endurance measurements and is known worldwide due to its almost exclusive use for strength and endurance measurements in the field of swallowing disorders.
