Review of Forbrain

Forbrain Sound for Life LTD
Jacob has been hearing impaired all his life and wears hearing aids so when we were given the

opportunity to receive, use and review Forbrain I immediately signed up. Jacob received speech

therapy until middle school and many people couldn't tell he was deaf/hearing impaired. I've noticed

a slip in his speech the past few years, he's now 18, and have thought he may need to return to

therapy but when I learned of Forbrain I thought I'd give it a try first.

What is Forbrain?

Forbrain, by Sound for Life LTD is a headset program designed to help people who have speech

difficulties, language issues, attention deficiencies and memory difficulties. The Forbrain headset

uses your voice to give your nervous system a "workout". Using the audio vocal loop your voice

is transmitted through bone conduction. The Bone Conduction Transducer sits on the temporal

bone in front of the ear. The  microphone on the headset transmits your voice through the dynamic

filter then to the transducers. Forbrain  improves activities such as reading comprehension even

more productive workouts at the gym. An increase in self-confidence is made possible by reducing

sensitivity to noise and become more in touch with your own voice. 20 minutes a day is all that's

needed for improvement of speech, focus, memory and coordination.

Some suggestions for use are:

For Me
  • Musicality : Sing aloud the text you are reading
  • Rhythm: Read a poem while taking a breath at the end of each line
  • Flow : Read a text while taking a breath every 3 or 4 words irrespective of meaning and punctuation
  • Diction : Read a text while exaggerating sounds as if you were making a speech to a crowd
  • Accentuation : read a text while changing the volume of your voice every 5 seconds from very faint to loud and vice versa
  • Memorization : read a text aloud and repeat it immediately without looking at the text
  • Dialogue : read a comic book or a dialogue and give each character a unique voice

For a child

  • Accompanying : you read the text slowly at the same time as the child without pausing for his/her mistakes or hesitations
  • Echo: you overlay your voice on the child’s, who reads with ± one second lag to slow down or speed up his/her speech rate
  • Memorization : you read a group of words, sentence or line of poetry that the child repeats immediately without reading
  • Dialogue: you read a comic book or dialogue alternating characters with the child and accentuating differences in voice
  • Invention: you create a story with the child, from images or figurines, taking turns inventing a sentence of dialogue
What's Included?

The headsets come with a rechargeable battery and a USB cord for charging. Included in the nice

zippered hard case along with the headsets are extra microphone covers and a quick start guide with

directions on posture when using Forbrain . There's also a more extensive Users Manual included.

How Did We Use It?

Jacob wore the headsets and read scripture throughout our six week review time. He liked being

able to hear himself reading and I did notice some improvement with his speech. Hoping he will

continue to use these headsets.

Would We Recommend?

Yes I think they are really awesome. I'm going to try to get my mother to try them for improvement

of her memory.
