Exploring voice for brain health - Sonde Health’s innovative approach to build MCI digital biomarkers

Voice is increasingly understood as a valuable indicator of health, including for its potential to reveal early signs of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). Sonde Health, in collaboration with GN, is at the forefront of developing vocal biomarker technology, which aims to detect subtle vocal variations that may precede the more noticeable symptoms of cognitive decline. The importance of early detection is significant, as it may facilitate interventions when they are most likely to be effective.


Hearing health is directly relevant here, as it is considered the largest modifiable risk factor for dementia currently known. The integration of voice analysis within hearing solutions could therefore provide important health insights. This innovative approach is part of a broader commitment to enhancing awareness and pushing forward the development of brain health technologies through hearing health initiatives.


This co-development initiative is based on robust scientific inquiry, including clinical investigations conducted with the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center in New York City, and Baby Memorial Hospital in Kozhikode, India. These efforts demonstrate a dedication to scientific excellence and international collaboration, essential for advancing the field of hearing health technology.
