Laronix is pleased to introduce Bionic Voice, the world’s first smart wearable electronic voice prosthesis for laryngectomy people (larynx amputees or laryngectomees). Bionic Voice substitutes and regenerates
the missing "voice source” for laryngectomees.
It is naturally controlled by respiration and has an exceptionally high voice quality. The Voice is generated by a smart algorithm and can be trained in its future generation to reach a voice quality resembling the patient’s own.
Electronic voice prostheses
such as electrolarynx require manual control. Bionic Voice
is naturally controlled using respiration.
Bionic Voice generates a voice quality better than other solutions on the
Bionic Voice has an Artificial Intelligence (AI) module that learns to improve the quality
of the voice over time to sound closer to the patient's own.

Laronix hits another milestone in funding
Laronix is thrilled to announce that it has raised A$2 million in seed funding. The round was led by Scale Investors and includes participation from Dr. Elaine Saunders and Dr. Peter Blamey, the co-founders of hearing aid company Blamey Saunders, and Kristy Chong, the ModiBodi founder who sold her company for $140 million last year.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND IT
Bionic Voice is a wearable system, integrating hardware and software to generate true voice for laryngectomees.
A pressure sensing module sits over the patient’s stoma to monitor respiration. Similar to the vocal folds, these readings then drive an Artificial Intelligence (AI) based software model of vocal folds which produces the patient’s voice.
The AI software is designed to learn and mimic the natural voice of the patient.
