Human terminal technology presented at Capitol Hill conference

VoiceLever : 14 January, 2009  (New Product)
VoiceLever makes presentation to congress on human terminal enabling hands free body-worn computing which incorporates voice recognition technology
VoiceLever has been selected among 29 other technology companies from around the globe to present its VoiceLever human terminal - an on-body communications and computing platform - at the 12th Annual Congressional Internet Caucus. VoiceLever joins a small, prestigious group of global industry leaders including Nokia, Panasonic, Motorola, Microsoft, Comcast, Accenture, NTT, Fujitsu, Verizon, Lockheed Martin and Xerox to present at this years' caucus on the eve of the President's inauguration. The Congressional Internet Caucus is the longest running annual technology policy exhibition hosted on Capitol Hill, bringing Internet and technology solutions to the forefront of Congressional policy debates facing the nation.

VoiceLever is developing the human terminal for on-body communications and computing, addressing important policy goals and objectives facing Congress that directly impact the economy in healthcare, public safety, security, and education sectors. The company is especially focused on applying the platform to help solve some critical problems dealing with healthcare efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Healthcare economics today call for 'more' and for 'less': less time, inventory, space, labour, errors, waste and cost in a healthcare environment characterised by more to know, do, manage, watch, and more people involved per patient than ever before.

The VoiceLever on-body communications and computing platform features several devices, from a small wristwatch-sized device, called the human terminal computer with a large, high-definition, full colour screen and a Bluetooth or wired headset, to software and hardware for wireless connections to a cellular phone or PC, and a host of other new wireless infrastructure devices for automatically gathering data. The integrated platform with the human terminal system creates a hands-free network that extends a perimeter around existing healthcare systems, making use of the power of the human voice beyond just communications. Functionality includes speech recognition for data entry ("blood pressure is 152 over 90"), communications control ("call Dr Welton"), information retrieval ("ID patient by photo") and speech synthesis for speaking information to the clinician as it displays ("patient is allergic to penicillin"), all enabling the wearer to keep their eyes on the patient. Coupled with the mobility of wireless, the platform brings the man-machine interface to the human level for the clinician, making it faster and easier.

With rapid access to the Internet and intranets, this novel solution can increase the productivity of 'hands-and-eyes-busy,' on-the-go work, without paper, and untethered from 'sit-down' computers and keyboards. Detailed graphics and charts can be called up on voice command and a touch screen and pager-like vibrator support silent operation. The human terminal system features state-of-the-art speech technology from Conversay, a company founded by the founder of VoiceLever. Conversay is a leader in speech technology with deployments in over 10 million cellular phones and some of the most advanced jet fighter cockpits in the world.

The Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee is a diverse group of public interest, nonprofit, and industry groups committed to providing educational events. They select participants for each caucus to include a diverse set of views and perspectives. Policy issues are highlighted at the Technology Policy Exhibition and Reception with hands-on demonstrations of how the Internet is changing the future. Capitol Hill staff and industry constituents are invited to view cutting-edge technology and learn more about how the power and flexibility of the Internet can improve communications, commerce, and democracy.
