Description: Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT) Companion System, Clinician Edition, is a bundled technology that includes the LSVT Companion System software and a calibrated microphone for collecting data from speech therapy assessment and treatment sessions for clients with Parkinson`s Disease and other neurological conditions. LSVT is designed to improve vocal loudness by stimulating the muscles of the voice box (larynx) and speech mechanism through a systematic hierarchy of exercises to bring the voice to an improved, healthy vocal loudness with no strain.
This technology is available in Clinician Edition and Client Edition. This entry covers the two editions.
This technology writes speech data to an external Excel File that resides on the user`s local drive.

The LSVT Companion System is licensed for use by a single clinician. A clinician must be LSVT LOUD Certified to use this product.

Note: This assessment does not include the Home Edition of this system, which can be purchased separately and used by clients at home to augment the in-person treatment sessions.
