Q: Could you introduce about NUGUNA Neck Band?
A: ‘NUGUNA Neck Band’, is a wearable device that tells the direction of a high pitch by vibration for people with hearing impairment and elders with hearing difficulties in hearing.
People with hearing impairment cannot recognize even loud sounds such as automobile horns, sirens, and fire alarms or when something occurs in the surrounding.
‘NUGUNA Neck Band’ recognizes the direction where the sound has occurred by the vibration of neck band, thereby suggesting a safer situation.
Q: What are your future plans?
A: We plan to continuously develop products for people with hearing disabilities. In addition to hearing-impaired people and elders with hearing difficulties, we are preparing various wearable devices in neck-band forms for socially disadvantaged people. We are also preparing various other products such as an earphone-style hearing aid.
