Have you had difficulty eating and swallowing as a result of throat cancer? (Appeal for volunteers to help with research)

We have been approached by a team based at the University College London who are working on a new technological device that would help people who have had difficulty with eating and swallowing. The team are looking for volunteers to help with two different parts of this research.
They are looking for volunteers who have had throat cancer and either at the time of initial treatment, or subsequently, have found food and drink going down the wrong way (aspiration). The device they are working on would be to help prevent this happening and the subsequent cough needed to clear.
They are looking to recruit to two exercises: one is for nationwide focus groups exploring the experience of aspiration and what people would be looking for in such a device.
The other, for those in, or willing to travel to, the London or Bristol areas, are some studies of surface muscle signals that can be used to trigger a device.
If you can help and would like to give your input, then please email gordon@throatcancerfoundation.org to find out more.
