The Earswitch was developed by Dr Nick Gompertz, the Director of Earswitch Ltd.
Nick is an experienced GP (primary care doctor), who has witnessed the importance of maintaining communication for people with severe disabilities who can‘t speak or operate keyboards.
He proved that voluntary movements of the eardrum could be filmed and used to trigger a virtual keyboard used for communication.
This Earswitch provides widespread benefit for everyone providing; a hands-free, silent and invisible control for our devices, in a device we already wear; in earphones or hearing aids.
Earswitch Ltd has UK Patent granted, with International PCT application.
The next step…. to license the Earswitch to earphone & hearing aid manufacturers, and to develop stand alone gamers switches and communication earphones for people with disabilities.
