In order to establish the level of liquid thickening suitable for patients, Nutrisens Medical has developed the D.S.A pack, which uses 4 types of liquids ranging from tap water to thickened or gelled water.

Each grade of liquid uses both sensitive stimulation of the mouth and the throat (temperature, flavouring) and a reduction in the speed of the liquid (viscosity, yield point).
