Canary Concussion

Nearly half of the trainers surveyed in major college football felt pressure from coaches to return concussed players to the field before they were medically ready.

Identifying concussion quickly on the field, using voice technology, can turn these subjective decisions into data-driven ones.


Alzheimer's and dementia

Alzheimer's is usually diagnosed after
significant neurological decline has already occurred.

Identifying Alzheimer's before symptoms appear means more time
to manage symptoms and plan for the future.




Vocal indicators of dementia develop before other observable symptoms.

These include changes to both what people say (textual changes), and how they say it (e.g. vocal tremors).
