Article describing the Chin Dry System (CDS), which was developed by the National Institute of Health, and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. The CDS was developed to address the problem of saliva overflow. The CDS keeps the user dry from unwanted saliva; and serves as a research tool for professionals investigating the problem of saliva overflow. The article investigates the CDS’s reliability, caregiver attitudes, and the user's self concept, social, behavioral, and psychological changes as a result of using the CDS. Participants who used the CDS reported negative results, and did not recommend the product.
