A Gothenburg Throat?
Waqas Qazi successfully defended his thesis “Exploring the role of rheology in bolus flow
Waqas Qazi successfully defended his thesis “Exploring the role of rheology in bolus flow using an in vitro approach” with Professor Peter Fischer as academic opponent. The in vitro approach is the so called “Gothenburg Throat” which is a model of the human throat used to monitor the flow of a bolus and how it depends on the food rheology, as well as to study different types of swallowing disorders. Dr Qazi showed that validation of the model as compared to human swallowing and the influence of rheological properties on human swallowing. For example was safe swallowing shown to be facilitated by fluid elasticity.
