The Keeper of Adams Apple is a sensor to detect if people are using the WRONG muscle when speaking or singing. Not only can it help peolpe aviod getting vocal problems, but also help the patients whose vocal cord are already hurt to do the rehabilitation.
In general, when we are singing in a high pitch, the larynx will raise. This will get you vocal problems. The best and healthier way to sing is to slightly lower your laryngeal position by using the correct muscles. So This sensor can detect the larynx position and muscle intensity in real time. Once the intensity is too high, the sensor will generate electrical impulse to warn the user.
