Summary
UCLA bioengineers have developed a new AI-assisted wearable device, designed as an adhesive neck patch, to aid individuals with vocal cord dysfunctions in regaining speech capabilities. This innovative bioelectric system employs machine learning to translate laryngeal muscle movements into audible speech with nearly 95% accuracy, offering a non-invasive communication solution for those suffering from voice disorders or recovering from related surgeries. The flexible, self-powered device, detailed in the journal Nature Communications, marks a significant advancement in speech technology for disabilities, potentially transforming the communication landscape for individuals facing vocal communication challenges.
