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.
For people with a week or strained voice, possibly caused by vocal damage, or for people who rely on projecting their voices for a long period of time and therefore using their voice intensively, this voice amplifier will maintain volume and clarity over that period of time without straining or causing further damage to the voice.
Can assist by enhancing even the faintest of voices with minimal effort required by the user, thus giving the user more confidence, and helping control the volume of his or her voice amongst a group of people .
Only a whisper is required for the voice amplifier to provide excellent amplification with the boom microphone. Alternatively the clip on lapel can be positioned on or near the lapel providing a more discreet option.
Supplied with a lightweight headband type boom microphone and optional lapel microphone. A necklace and belt clip attachment make the device easy to carry, and simple to wear and remove.
Also has a facility for use with a computer or mobile phone making it all the more versatile for the user.
The Unex Personal Voice Amplifier is designed with an inbuilt noise and feedback interference reduction function. But always avoid positioning your microphone near the speaker unit when switched on, as this can cause the unwanted feedback. Microphone feedback is caused by your microphone picking up the output sound from the voice amplifier speaker, which it then re-amplifies causing a loop, which is caused by the microphone picking up the original sound and amplifying it again and again … until the sound can’t be amplified anymore and something has to give; usually your listener’s ears!
“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”.
