There are many new medical wearable innovations every month, but this one is something special, Clarify. Worldwide, 466 million people are affected by hearing loss. High-frequency hearing loss is one of the most common types of hearing loss and makes it difficult to hear high-pitched sounds. It can affect people of all ages but is most common in older people who have been repeatedly exposed to loud noises. This type of hearing loss can be frustrating and disabling as it can make it difficult to interact with other people, resulting in a lower quality of life.

Neosensory's Clarify wristband is a technological breakthrough in hearing health. Clarify uses vibration and brain training to enable hearing through the skin. Equipped with Neosensory's machine learning algorithms, the band vibrates in response to certain speech sounds that are difficult to recognize for people who lose the upper frequencies of their hearing. In less than three weeks, the brain adapts to these new inputs and the wearer can interpret the vibrations as speech.

About Neosensory

Neosensory was founded by neuroscientists in 2015 with the mission to send data streams to the brain via the sense of touch. With so much unused real estate on the body, the skin presents an untapped channel for the delivery of new information. Neosensory has set itself the goal of making a significant social contribution with its sound-to-touch products.
