Voxello’s noddle helps hospitals prevent adverse medical complications.
Here are some highlights from the article…
A Coralville company, Voxello, has developed the “noddle,” a device that enables patients, doctors, nurses and other caregivers to communicate using sensors, a tablet-size computer screen and text-to-speech software.
“With just a tongue click, a patient can call a nurse and communicate what they need,” said Rives Bird, Voxello CEO. “A tongue click is a very typical response that a patient who is paralyzed or unable to speak will use to get someone’s attention.”
The noddle, which a patient can use to control up to three devices, received U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance last month.
