Panel Discussion: Early handsfree speech after total laryngectomy

Handsfree tracheoesophageal speech utilizing a voice prosthesis and handsfree speaking valve most closely resembles natural speech. In this panel clinical pathways aimed at accomplishing handsfree speech early on in the patients rehabilitation process and techniques for improving success rates will be discussed. Both institutions involved in this panel have established pathways for early handsfree introduction. A handsfree speaker will describe his personal journey towards accomplishing handsfree speech.

Please join us for this moderated panel discussion with leading facilities who will discuss their approach to handsfree speech in their clinical practice. Additionally they will be available to address questions from the attendees during the Q&A. Atos Medical is pleased to facilitate this live panel discussion.
