People who are weak or deprived in hearing (deaf) or in a similar situation called ‘Cocktail Party Effect‘, under which they do not distinguish between people’s voices in the crowds. Now in this situation a new device will help them to listen which they can feel the sound by keeping fingers on the vibrating Auditory Stimulation.
It is named as “Vibrating Auditory Simulator,” prepared by a professor of Hebron University in Jerusalem with the help of international experts. The device was first tested at 12 persons, with an average of 29 years of age. The native language of all people was English, and none of was inaccessible to hearing the disorder.
These people were tested with listening to 25 groups of 10 short, simple sentences, all of which were spoken in English and distracting, background-conversation-like noise was added to the audio
At first participants were hear on the headphone so it was very difficult to understand what was being said.Then he was told to hear the testimony and the middle finger placed on a vibrating Auditory Stimulation tool, and he was well understood.
Vibrating Auditory Stimulation is the device that changes the frequency into vibration. Using this tool, listening to the sounds in two ways – the first they hear from the ear and feel frustrated then with their fingers. The process of listening to this type of 6 DC bell was noted as better by this tool.
Dr. Tomasz Wolak of World Hearing Center in Poland says that the fingers’ vibrations help us too much to listen. In this way, we listen to two senses and both types of information arrive at the same place of mind and accelerate the process of listening.
In the next phase, this tool will be tested by people who are very difficult in hearing. The details of this research have been published in the journal Restorative Neurology and Neuroscience.
