Summary

Provides a list of phrases and images with which patients can communicate to medical professionals some of their needs and feelings (such as "I have chest pain", or "I want a doctor"). Intended for patients and people who have difficulty speaking (perhaps due, for instance, to a language impairment, or not knowing enough English), and for people who cannot speak at all (perhaps due, for instance, to being intubated, or on a tracheotomy tube). Phrases chosen are spoken in a natural human voice, and accompanying pictures emphasise meaning.

Reviews

Reviewer: Central Coast Children Foundation, USA
Review: “An app to help patients with speaking difficulties (whether because of an impairment, or because of an operation) express their needs to medical-care providers in the intensive care unit (ICU). Users choose from picture-based vocabulary to ‘speak’ phrases like, “I am in pain,” or “I want to be comforted.” The pictures that match the words make this app useful for non-English speakers as well. Reviewers found the app useful for the ICU, though one user said that the interface “was not great.” The pictures are self-explanatory, and make the app a convenient tool for non-native-English speakers.”
