The throat-worn wearable, developed with the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, measures patients’ swallowing ability and patterns of speech, and aids in aphasia diagnosis.
The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab uses the throat sensor in conjunction with Rogers-developed biosensors on the legs, arms and chest to monitor stroke patients’ recovery progress. Data is sent to clinicians’ phones and computers, providing real-time, quantitative, full-body analysis of patients’ advanced physical and physiological responses.
