VOICE AMPLIFIERS

Useful to anyone with a weak voice or a throat problem such as: vocal nodules, Parkinson's, ALS, MS, Guillan Barre, impairment of throat or chest muscles, damaged or partially paralyzed vocal cords, diminished lung capacity, artificial larynx users, esophageal and TEP speakers.
A great help at home, office, factory, hospital, school, nursing home, church, retreat, camp, meeting, restaurant, party, ballgame, any place or event - one to one conversation or group activity - and in a car, bus, plane or train to get above engine and road noises.
People with no voice problems will also benefit from using an amplifier when talking to groups or in a large or noisy area - no shouting or voice strain, better listener understanding. Amplifiers are a wonderful asset to tour guides, teachers, coaches, clergy, morticians, entertainers, public speakers

WHY USE A PERSONAL AMPLIFIER???

FOR EASIER, LESS FRUSTRATING COMMUNICATION!!!
AND MANY RELATED ADVANTAGES FOR BOTH USERS AND LISTENERS

> Rests the throat to allow healing or to avoid damage or further damage.
> Minimizes overall strain and fatigue when physical condition makes talking a tiring effort.
> Less need for repetition, fewer misunderstandings.
> Makes life generally more pleasant and less frustrating both for people who want to be heard and for the family, friends, caregivers and teachers who want to be able to hear them easily.
> Promotes independence and self-assurance in those who previously could not "speak up" and take charge of their own lives and care.
> Improves communication with those with hearing problems - a relief to both speaker and listener Lets those with hearing impairment hear themselves better during speech practice - while improving tone and articulation, learning, esophageal speech, reacquiring speech after stroke or injury, etc.
> Allows longer phrasing for esophageal speakers.
> Helps develop poise and self-confidence in those not accustomed to public speaking.
> Enhances enjoyment for both participants and audience at special events.
> Increases effectiveness of classes, lectures, meetings, sales presentations.
> Facilitates easier, non-aggressive crowd control.> Battery powered, with no cord to limit movement and no danger of electric shock in wet areas.

HOW TO PREDICT WHETHER AMPLIFICATION IS LIKELY TO BE SUCCESSFUL?
Choose a quiet room and a listener with average hearing. Position the listener so that the speaker's mouth is about 12" to 18" behind the listener's ears. (This position precludes lip reading.) If the listener can understand most of what the speaker says, then there is a probably enough voice to make good use of an amplifier. If some sound can be heard, though not loud enough to be understandable, then it is possible that a very powerful amp, such as the Mini-Vox, might bring the voice up to a usable level. (IMPORTANT - an amplifier user must be able to shape words fairly well - amplifiers improve only volume, not articulation - though freedom from worry about volume may allow concentration on articulation and consistancy of voice production.)

INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR AMPLIFIERS: PRIVATE INSURANCE may reimburse you, depending on your policy. You would fill out your insurance company's claim for and include a copy of your "Paid" invoice and a statement of need from your doctor.  A copy of your "Paid" invoice is also useful if proof of medical purchases is needed for taxes.
