Parkinson’s Voice Monitor-Stage 2

Student Team: Carlee Quiles, Dominic Norris, Nate Gesell
Advisor: Steve Schennum
Sponsoring Organization: Parkinson’s Resource Center of Spokane & EWU Department of Communication Disorders
Liaison: Doreen Nicholas, Walter Jakubowski

Our team worked with EWU Department of Communication Disorders and The Parkinson’s Resource Center of Spokane to build a Parkinson’s Voice Monitor. Our product is designed for use in medical practices, as well as, daily life. The voice monitor uses a sensor to obtain the vibrations of the larynx to determine if the user is speaking at a level that is clear for others around them. If they are speaking below this level, the user is notified. This device will help speech therapist and families to improve communication with individuals with Parkinson’s disease. To create this device, we brought our individual electrical and mechanical disciplines together. Writing code to be used by an Arduino Uno, this device works collaboratively with our student-designed circuit board to read, store, and give an output from the data that is obtained through the sensor.
