Electronic aid for deaf client

The challenge

The client could not tell when he was shouting in a normal conversation.

The solution was an electronic belt-mounted aid, which measures the difference between the client’s voice and the ambient noise level. It vibrates when this difference exceeds a pre-determined amount alerting the client to the fact that he is shouting.

He is now able to talk without shouting when conversing socially or with clients of his local charity.
