Purpose. Effective delivery of dysphagia exercises requires intensive repetition, yet many brain injury survivors demonstrate difficulty adhering to home programmes. The Television Assisted Prompting (TAP) system provides a novel method to deliver intensive in-home therapy prompts. Specific research questions compared the effectiveness of the TAP system to typical practice on programme adherence, satisfaction and caregiver burden. Method. A within-participant alternating treatment design with random assignment of treatment condition compared exercise programme adherence across TAP and typical practice delivery conditions, replicated across three participants. Data included quantitative programme completion rates, satisfaction survey reports and caregiver burden questionnaire results, as well as qualitative interview findings. Results. A large treatment effect was demonstrated for two participants; exercise programme completion rates increased by 6-17 times typical practice levels with the TAP system. TAP supported sustained practice over the course of the experiment for the third participant despite minimal differences between conditions. Participants reported high satisfaction and endorsed the TAP system. There was no significant change in caregiver burden. Conclusion. The TAP system provided a novel assistive tool to support home programme completion of intensive exercise regimens for clients with cognitive impairment and care providers with significant burden. Future research must ensure continued development of a reliable and intuitive system.
