Backgrounds

The Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) is launched an Oroeasy mobile app in 2021. This mobile app is funded by the Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund and the Office of Research and Knowledge Transfer Services. It is designed for the speech therapists, patients and the general public.

CUHK Oroeasy app is intended to provide a convenient way for the speech therapists to register the patients in need, tailor-made suitable oral motor training programmes for their patients, and keep track on the compliance of the patients in performing the exercises.

The patients could follow the tailored-made oral motor exercise training programme by watching videos. The progress in performing the training programme could be monitored by the speech therapist.

The mobile app could also provide an easy-to-access mean for the general public to select and follow the oral motor exercises.
