Purpose of Research

We are researching technology to detect minute changes in voice associated with disease and visualize the disease in a non-invasive manner. Voice stress assessment technology has already been developed and has been commercialized by several companies. It was also adopted as one of the ME-BYO Index promoted by Kanagawa Prefecture. Currently, we are conducting research on depression, dementia, and Parkinson's disease with a view to the aging society. Furthermore, we are looking for ways to utilize this technology in fields other than healthcare.

Subjects of Reseach

  • Development of voice biomarkers (stress, depression, dementia, Parkinson's disease, etc.)
  • Application of voice biomarkers (athlete mental care, etc.)
