Hans-Heinrich Bothe, Ali F. Mohamad, Martin R. Jensen

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


FLIPPS is a new hand-hold tactile stimulation device developed for the improvement of speechreading conversation with or amongst hearing-impaired persons. It makes additional speech information available through multiple fingertip stimulation using power-balanced frequency bands for the vibrator stimulation. FLIPPS is battery-powered, so that it may be used in daily life conversation. The small size allows for pocket use. First field tests indicate the applicability of the device. At the moment, a prototype hardware realization is at hand, which allows for parameter optimization and for further field tests.
