Helping you to be heard
The Unex Personal Voice Amplifier is a brand new voice amplification system that is sensitive enough to amplify dramatically even the faintest of voices for up to 12 hours.
With an 18 watt digital voice amplifier providing high power audio output and clear sound quality, the user can control the volume of their own voice in different environments, indoors or outdoors.
Designed to help young or elderly people with voice disorders or acquired communication difficulties, that have resulted from Parkinson’s, multiple system atrophy, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, suffering a stroke, or other vocal damage resulting from surgery around the vocal chords or voice box… read more…
“As Speech and Language Therapists we commonly support people whose voices have lost considerable volume. This has a significant impact on their communication and interaction with those around them. This Unex Personal Voice Amplifier is a small, lightweight and cost effective solution and has the added benefit of being compatible with mobile phone technology to amplify the outgoing voice”.
Rachel Nashed Msc RCSLT, Joint Clinical Lead for Voice Speech and Language Therapy Service, Torbay Hospital.
“I must say that the throat microphone is brilliant, and transforms the Personal voice amplifier from “just another amplifier” into something that actually works properly, and does what it says on the package! Lapel and headset microphones simply don’t work properly in normal surroundings with noisy backgrounds, as they tend to pick up everything apart from one’s voice.
However, your throat microphone seems not to be bothered at all by background noises, and is far easier to use, especially as one can maintain a normal level of speaking, rather than trying to shout over background noises.
Whilst initially the throat microphone felt a bit restrictive, I very rapidly got used to it being on my throat, and after 5 – 10 mins, I almost forgot I was wearing it.”

Look After Your Voice
- Drink lots, but not alcohol or caffeine. Sip fluids throughout the day.
- Always have a bottle of water to hand.
- Avoid throat clearing as it can irritate your throat further. Take a sip of water whenever you feel the urge.
- If you have any symptoms of heartburn, indigestion or reflux, get it treated by a doctor.
- Chewing a non-mint based gum often (particularly gum containing bicarbonate of soda) may help by generating saliva and relaxing the muscles around the throat through repetitious movement. It may also help with reflux (flow of stomach acid/contents) into the larynx.
- Steam inhalations can be soothing. Use them regularly. Aim for five minutes twice a day.
