Why Choose Phonation Resistance Training Exercises
How is PhoRTE Different?
Voice therapy for older adults with presbyphonia has historically been focused on decreasing compensatory laryngeal hyperfunction during voice production (recalibration). PhoRTE takes a different approach to voice therapy for presbyphonia. PhoRTE is an exercise-based voice therapy that incorporates principles of the Japanese art form of Kintsugi.
Does Evidence Exist on PhoRTE?
PhoRTE has Level 1B evidence from two published prospective, randomized clinical trials to treat presbyphonia. They show a significant decrease in vocal effort and a significant increase in voice-related quality of life.
It is great to be able to offer patients an evidence-based, non-surgical treatment option for presbyphonia that has proven results.
