Servox Digital XL

SERVOX®  Digital XL


XL Performance – XL Flexibility – XL Quality

High Quality Materials - Ergonomic - Lightweight - Reliable
The SERVOX® digital XL speech aid is a high-quality new edition of the well-known SERVOX® digital. With its modern power management the battery performance has been significantly increased, extending speaking time by more than 50%* compared to the previous model. SERVOX® digital XL provides up-to-date vocal rehabilitation for laryngectomized and tracheotomized patients.

The SERVOX® digital XL speech aid offers patients, who have lost their voice due to injury, illness or surgical removal of the larynx, the opportunity to quickly regain the ability to communicate.

The SERVOX® digital XL can also be used by patients who are temporarily voiceless due to a tracheostomy, who have to protect their vocal folds due to illness or who are connected to a respirator.

Even patients who are comfortable using the oesophageal voice can use the SERVOX® digital XL in a variety of scenarios, e.g. for making phone calls, at business meetings, when they are tired, sick or very stressed, in an emergency, or in settings where speaking in a loud voice is essential.

The NEW EMST150™ breathing device

Let me start by sharing what’s NEW!!

We are thrilled to announce the introduction of the EMST150 into our product offering. Given swallowing issues are so often associated with laryngectomy patients we regularly feel powerless to support you in this area … until now! The EMST150 strengthens the muscles involved in coughing, swallowing and breathing. Let me tell you more …


Arriving soon...the EMST150

Expiratory Muscle Strength Trainer

The EMST150 is the most scientifically tested, clinically proven, handheld expiratory muscle strength trainer available! Designed by a well-respected team of researchers, the one of kind EMST150 device now has over a decade worth of evidence-based outcomes. (Clinical evidence). The EMST150 research team and scientists worldwide found that the simple use of the EMST150 over a short period of time results in an unquestionable improvement in breathing force while improving the strength of cough, swallow and voice (read article here).  

In trial after trial, the EMST150 training system has shown significant improvements in the strength of healthy individuals, and individuals diagnosed with neurological/neurogenic diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, stroke, multiple sclerosis, ALS, and spinal cord injury.
