Willow Creek Women's Hospital Experience: Adoption of the NTrainer System in the NICU:
The effect of the NTrainer System on length of hospital stay at WCWH appears to be a reduction, on average, of 1 week.
Implementation of the NTrainer into Clinical Practice Targeting Neurodevelopment of Pre-oral Skills and Parental Involvement:
Through observation, repeated experience and data recorded by the NTrainer, the NICU team at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center (OSUWMC), as a whole, noted that infants who received early oral motor assessments by the neonatal OT and NTrainer therapy demonstrated a more mature NNS pattern, improved suck strength, and a decreased hypersensitivity to oral motor intervention, overall positively affecting the neurodevelopment of the preterm infant.
