Have you ever wondered whether a voice amplifier might help you to reduce voice strain or improve your voice projection?
Would you like to borrow one from our branch to assess whether buying one for yourself might be worthwhile?
Thanks to anonymous donors, our branch has a personal voice amplifier for you to borrow for up to two weeks to see whether it might suit you. It’s the model sold by Parkinson’s UK and costs £50 or £72 with the optional throat microphone.
There is no charge to borrow the amplifier and accessories but we would welcome an optional donation of £5 towards its upkeep and maintenance.

Manufacturer’s product description
The Unex personal voice amplifier is a brand-new voice amplification system that is sensitive enough to amplify dramatically even the faintest of voices for up to 12 hours.
This amplifier is ideal to help you reduce voice strain and improve intelligibility. Designed to help with one to one conversations or in small groups, it’s small and discreet, but at the same time very versatile.
With an 18-watt digital voice amplifier providing high power audio output and clear sound quality, the user can control the volume of their own voice in different environments, indoors or outdoors. Designed to help young or elderly people with voice disorders or acquired communication difficulties, that may have resulted from Parkinson’s or other conditions, or other vocal damage resulting from surgery around the vocal chords or voice box.
For people with a weak or strained voice or for people who rely on projecting their voices for a long period of time and therefore using their voice intensively, this voice amplifier will maintain volume and clarity without straining or causing further damage to the voice.
