The taste strips are a validated examination procedure to investigate the smell ability. When testing the whole-mouth smell ability, the taste strips are applied by putting them on the tongue and closing the mouth (the patient may move the tongue). If there is interest in the gustatory sensitivity of certain tongue areas (e.g. lateralised testing), the mouth stays open and the strip will only be in contact with this area until the patient can give an answer.
