A groundbreaking headset designed to improve speech and auditory processing, has received the best ICT Special Educational Needs Solution at the world’s leading showcase of education technology solutions, the BETT Show.

BETT Award judges said they were impressed with the technology behind Forbrain and said: “This is a distinctive and innovative resource that helps the engagement of students in their learning.”

The headset can be used on a daily basis by anyone who wishes to improve their communication skills, attention span and memory as well as being an specialist tool for children with learning difficulties. By improving the perception of the voice, Forbrain works simultaneously on all aspects of the audio-vocal loop, sharpening the user’s entire auditory system.

Co-founders of Sound For Life Ltd Thierry Gaujarengues, the manufacturers of Forbrain, said: “We are delighted to receive a BETT Award, which not only justifies the research and hard work we have put into developing this product, but more importantly will help ensure that Forbrain reaches those who need it most.”

The headset can be used in any setting, with just a few minutes reading per day required to stimulate the brain and achieve results. The unique device enhances specific patterns of the user's voice, delivering the user's voice directly via bone structure leaving their ears free to perceive external sounds.
