Over the years, I have had reason to recommend a patient use amplification for their voice.
To save patients the hassle of trying to find a good quality amplifier, I decided to try to find one I could provide directly to patients. I have tried several voice amplifiers to judge quality and also to get a good price point that patients are comfortable with.
The unit I will be selling performs quite well, and even at higher volume retains good voice quality without any distortion or feedback. A number of patients have told me that they can hear themselves better when performing voice exercises, and hence perform them better. Others have found that their hearing impaired spouses are pleased with being able to hear them, and others tell me that it makes it easier to concentrate on what they are saying than how loud they are talking.
I had a patient recently with Parkinson’s and Lewy Body, a retired teacher, and I honestly couldn’t understand more than 25% of what he was saying during the evaluation. His wife, consequently, did all of the talking. It was such a struggle for him to get his voice on, that once he had voice, he didn’t know what he wanted to say.
On the second visit back, I placed an amplifier on him, and he literally spoke to me for the full 50 minutes, answering questions about his life and teaching, and showing a sense of humor that often reveals itself once you can hear an individual.
For patients with vocal fold impairments such as nodules or paralysis, use of a voice amplifier can reduce the impact of voice symptoms and help with day to day communication. The auxiliary input allows you to use the amplifier as an external speaker with computers and other electronics, and while using it for this purpose during a recent seminar, I found it provided more volume than two other external speakers I own. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
