[CES 2019] UFirst Introduces the ‘Nuguna’, a Neckband for Surdity

UFirst has introduced a series of neckband, Nuguna, for hearing impairment people in CES 2019 EUREKA PARK MIN Innovation Hot Spot & MIK Night (Booth #52843), the world’s largest technology show held in Las Vegas, USA from January 8 (Tue) to 11 (Fri),.

Nuguna is a wearable neckband which signals vibration based on the direction of high-pitched noise, such as car horn, for hearing-impaired people. It detects the sound coming from surrounding environment like car honk or conversation and enables perception of where the potential risk factors are located by the vibration sensor installed in each right and left the side of the neckband.

Another product that came along is ‘Nuguna-earphone’, a Bluetooth earphone made for safety reasons. It vibrates whenever there is an alarming sound around the area because one cannot hear properly while using the earphone.

UFirst, founded in 2015, is developing a ‘Nuguna’ solution for surdity, presbyacusis, and noise-induced hearing loss. The advantages of this product are a reasonable price, universal design, and perception of sound as well as the direction of incoming sound through vibration which provides safety.
