Effective Speech Therapy
For Stroke Patients
We help stroke patients to regain their speech with a state-of-the-art
speech training solution that connects in real-time with the
Caregiver, Therapist, Physician and Health Insurance
for co/session training, efficient patient management and data analysis.
In approx. 35% of the 15 million annual stroke cases, patients have often severe pronounciation challenges (Dysarthria), taking away their ability to speak with other people.
This condition can be significantly improved by
combining regular therapist sessions with a
high-frequency, home-based speech therapy
evivespeech is based on an award-winning application that uses speech recognition for instant evaluation and feedback.
It helps patients to continuously train their ability to speak properly by analyzing the patient’s pronunciation and providing challenge-specific video guides to improve their speech.
evivespeech is deployed though mobile devices that communicate via evivecloud servers with caregivers, healthcare providers and payers to manage and track the home practice sessions in real-time.
The result is an easy-to-use tool that feels like a simple app, yet it's back-end integration makes it a powerful and fully customizable solution for every patient.

Accelerating Speech Recovery After Stroke
Only a fraction of the 15 million people annually who have a stroke recover completely. Millions suffer from severe speech impairments afterwards, which push many of these individuals into complete isolation.
Studies confirm what therapists have long recognized: The typical speech therapy regimen of only 1-2 hours/week is ineffective for most people. To achieve significant results, a minimum of 5-10 hours/week is required. Due to the high cost of such therapy and a limited number of therapists, this treatment has not been a viable option. As a result, many patients are not getting better and instead remain permanently disabled.... Read more
