For use with the ISP DAF Controller. Single ear set for a monaural signal. Best used after practice period with binaural headset. Comfortable and stays in place. Clean, crisp sound.
For use with the ISP DAF Controller. Binaural signal typically offers better fluency and can be used initially with the system. Comfortable and provides clean, crisp sound.
In the clinic and real world, thousands of people who stutter (PWS) have successfully improved their fluency using this device. With a little training and practice, this comparatively inexpensive DAF Controller can help provide more fluent speech. DAF takes the spoken signal of the user and echoes it back with a slight delay. Mimicking the choral effect, the user receives his/her own speech signal through a single earpiece or through binaural headphones. This effect tricks the brain and provides greater fluency. In many cases, secondary behaviors associated with stuttering are vastly reduced. The device automatically shifts the frequency upward providing limited frequency-altered feedback (FAF).
While there is no cure for stuttering at this time, we have successfully used the device in and out of our clinic to help people who stutter. The device can also be used to help cluttering or those with festination of speech observed in Parkinson patients.
The ISP DAF Controller produces clean, crisp sound that is adjustable in its delay (measured in milliseconds) and volume. At only 4.3 ounces, the device is compact and lightweight using a single 9-volt battery or a convenient AC wall adapter. Easily slips in a pocket or clips to your pants or belt. Place it on a desk and use the convenient AC plug-in if you wish. The ISP DAF Controller is effective for children and adults, early onset stuttering, and acquired stuttering. The device is not recommended for normally disfluent speech observed in very young children.
We recommend training that teaches the use of the device, non-habituation strategies, and other valuable therapeutic techniques to increase fluency. It is an excellent prosthetic/training tool used in conjunction with your Speech-Language Pathologist. Initial training typically begins with the binaural headset where most people note a stark improvement in fluency; training then leads to use of the single ear phone. This device can be used for presentations, in the clinic or school, and on the go. The ISP DAF Controller is offered at a fraction of the cost of other in-the-ear devices and we highly recommend this device. Limited 1-year warranty. Kit comes complete with both a binaural headset and a single ear set, AC adapter, and training manual.
