Wearable throat sensor that help diagnose and treat aphasia

Summary:

  1. Northwestern University scientists have designed a wearable throat sensor that help diagnose and treat aphasia, a communication disorder typically associated with strokes.
  2. When combined with other sensors that track factors like heart functions, muscles and sleep, the throat tech promises a relatively unintrusive look at how your whole body is faring.
  3. Microphones frequently can’t distinguish between the patient and ambient sounds, and there’s the not-so-small problem of making sensors that can hold up to the rigors of life outside of the hospital.
