Laronix CEO and Founder, Dr. Farzaneh Ahmadi
featured on ABC News
Earlier this month, Laronix was featured on ABC News as an award winning innovation Bionics Queensland is pioneering this year. Dr. Farzaneh Ahmadi was presented on ABC to explain the Bionic Voice box and it's impact on people who have lost their voice due to laryngeal cancer, giving larynx cancer survivors hope.
The Laronix voice box is non-evasive and wearable to avoid complications of surgery.
It uses artificial intelligence (AI) to analyse respiration signals and produce a natural-sounding voice. Laronix currently has a database of male- and female-sounding voices, however, in time, it will give patients the opportunity to regain their own voice.

Laronix's Bionic Voice and its ability to provide natural voice quality for larynx amputees with male or female distinction, as well as its ability
to reach an ultra-realistic quality of voice resembling the patient's own, while being a safe and completely non-evasive voice prosthesis, makes Laronix the "world's first and only smart natural-sounding artificial voice box for larygectomees".
