Many of my patients benefit greatly from voice amplifiers.  While an amplifier can’t make speech clearer it can make it louder which is essential for those with reduced breath support.  pALS who use amplifiers report a decrease in fatigue at the end of the day and family members state they are straining less to understand.

TIP: Keep the mic within ½ inch of your lips!

Brand Recommendation:  Well, I have tried many brands and keep going back to the Luminaud Spokeman Amplifier coupled with the 3 Way High Gain Mic.  Other cheaper brands either produce a poorer voice quality or break easily.
