This research aims at developing a new device for normalization of a hyperactive gag reflex response. The gag reflex protects the airway against the entrance of unwanted material. Individuals with a hyperactive gag reflex response exhibit either a forceful motor response which may include vomiting or trigger the gag reflex in the anterior 2/3 of the oral cavity or non-oral body parts (3).
