Hands-Free Electrolarynx

The Hands-Free Electrolarynx (HFE) is an intuitive wearable device to help laryngectomees to regain their speech. HFE comprises a precise electromyography (EMG) system, an innovative voice actuator, an EMG controlled pitch and volume electronics.

A vibration applied to the throat replicates the vibration of the vocal cords. Laryngectomees can articulate with the tongue, palate, throat and lips without training.
