Imagine waking up one day without your voice. The isolation of that single day might seem like a nightmare, and for people who’ve lost their larynx due to illnesses such as cancer, this can last a lifetime. As a result, more than 500,000 people around the globe that had laryngeal cancer have the second-highest rate of suicide among all cancer survivors.
Laronix has developed the world’s first smart, wearable (non-invasive), artificial voice box that can give people who’ve lost their larynx their voice back. Using a combination of AI and sensors on the neck, Laronix can create an exceptionally high quality sounding voice for these people. Laronix is a spinout of Western Sydney University. Laronix voice prosthesis technology is claimed to have changed voice prosthesis design worldwide.
