- A mild‐to‐moderate intensity, EMST program was well tolerated in individuals with early ALS.
- The program resulted in significant improvements in Maximum Expiratory Pressures (MEP) and oral intake, as well as maintenance of peak cough flow and swallowing function.
- Further studies are warranted to validate these findings and to investigate the long‐term impact of this program on ALS disease progression.
