When we started developing speech devices in 2014, for the last 12 years there were no new devices introduced on the market for laryngectomy patients in the world. The electrolarynx speech-aids in 2014 offered real-time talk time from an hour and a half to two hours with batteries that were very expensive and inefficient.
Of course, there were good speech-aid models from an engineering point of view that was already on the market and they had taken their place. It was clear to us that we had to produce devices with significantly better parameters and unsurpassed options worldwide in order to be successful. We need to offer patients exactly what they need.
- Our research has shown that most people who use a speech aid want to be able to change their intonation during their speech.
- Everyone agreed that they needed more talking time and cheaper batteries.
- Equally important was the ratio of speech to side noise, which is not entirely avoidable with this technology.
- In addition to all this, we put our desire to create the lightest in the smallest electrolarynxes in the world.
Of course, all these goals were solvable with the use of modern digital technologies. So we decided to develop and produce modern digital devices with excellent tone, with a functional design, robust construction, and options that significantly exceed the capabilities of the devices currently sold.
Speech aid elecrolarynxes that consumers will love.
The first appearance of our model Inspiration in 2016 shifted the market and forced our main competitors to urgently start developing new models. Some of them sold their businesses and others tried to modernize some of what they had already developed.
Currently, we sell in more than 30 countries around the world and are constantly expanding our presence in new markets. We have an excellent product line, excellent support, affordable prices.
