Ron Stelzer knows the challenges of Parkinson’s Disease all too well, a terrible ailment that sometimes makes it difficult for him to speak clearly.
Diagnosed with the neurological disorder in 2007, Stelzer has had to deal with a range of difficult symptoms, including problems with the volume and intelligibility of his speech.
Fortunately, as CFO of AmpliVox Sound Systems, Stelzer works for a company that designs products that can solve problems like his and has access to experts in the science of helping people’s voices be heard.
AmpliVox sound technicians worked with Stelzer to adapt the company’s S207 BeltBlaster Pro with an on / off handheld button that helps him mute his voice when he does not want to be heard.
The BeltBlaster Voice Booster is a lightweight, battery-powered 5 Watt sound system that gives you a strong clear voice and freedom to move while you are talking.
The unit connects to either a lapel or headset microphone, and provides sufficient sound coverage for groups of up to 75 people.
It also includes fingertip controls for volume and a handheld mute button that is easy for users to operate.
“The critical feature it has is an on/off button that lets me mute my voice when I don’t want to be heard. The Voice Booster can help anyone who needs assistance being heard, for whatever reason.”
The BeltBlaster can be seen in action in this instructive video.
