Hypophonia is a condition present in people with Parkinson’s that causes the person's voice to drop in conversation without them knowing. Soulutions has developed a small wearable device that tracks when the user is talking and the volume of the user’s voice. When they speak too softly, the device reminds them to speak up through haptic feedback.
