Claire is developing the ‘Talk-More’ device – a pedometer for talking. This will act as a means of monitoring talking time to motivate people to increase their talking time to improve their rehabilitation. The aim is for the device to be used by clinical speech and language therapists, researchers and stroke survivors and their families. The research will look at feedback from these end users and understand how we can improve the ‘Talk-More’ device.
