An ongoing process to develop oral vibrotactile instrumentation that can be standardized and used In practical assessment of the oral tactile sensory system was reported in The International Journal of Orofacial Myo/ogy in March, 1990, by Fucci, Petrosino, and Harris. The material presented in the present article reflects the current research and future direction that the development of this instrumentation is taking. Potential benefits of this instrumentation for individuals working in the area of orofacial myofunctional disorders are suggested.
