The Provox ActiValve is designed for users who experience short device life (less than 4 – 8 weeks) caused by early leakage through the prosthesis or negative pressure in the pharynx/esophagus during swallowing or inhalation. The valve and valve-seat of the Provox ActiValve consist of fluoroplastic which appears to be insusceptible to destruction by candida. They are closed with magnets which prevents inadvertent valve opening when the user breathes or swallows.
In a clinical study the Provox ActiValve had a 16-fold device life compared to standard voice prostheses.
