Aum gives voice to the voiceless
June 24, 2016
A cancer specialist in Bengaluru has created a device called Aum, which can give voice to patients with throat cancer.
Around 5,000 people in India suffer from stage-IV throat cancer each year, which damages their voice boxes. Using his love for bikes as inspiration, the doctor came up with a voice prosthesis that is cheaper than the ones available in the market and can be fitted in the throat in less than 15 minutes.
Aum is available in the market for just Rs 50.
