The FluxBuds® Patient Study

We are excited to invite you to take part in the FluxBuds Patient study, an innovative assistive hearing-directed device trial focused on evaluating the clinical efficiency, longevity, and usability of our device. Our goal is to empower individuals who stutter to substantially or even fully regain speech fluency while using this groundbreaking technology. Participants will wear a pair of earbuds designed to be cosmetically indistinguishable from popular lifestyle earbuds.

The device utilizes a patent-pending AI-empowered voice-feedback technology, configured to sensorially mute neural circuits known to be aberrant in people who stutter.

Wearing the device is as simple as putting on eyeglasses – no conscious effort or training is needed.
If you are interested in contributing to the development of this groundbreaking anti-stutter wearable consider joining our FluxBuds Patient Registry.

Please feel free to reach out to us if you would like to register as a patient or if you have any questions or concerns

Frequently Asked Questions

The study aims to identify the most effective, persistent, and sensorially pleasant ways to enhance speech fluency. Therefore, the study is concerned with the overall contribution to reduce stuttering over short and longer periods of time as well.

The research group at PsyAIHance has successfully identified a brain mechanism that offers a bypass route around the neural impairments commonly associated with stuttering. Leveraging the cutting-edge capabilities of machine learning, the team has engineered sophisticated audio algorithms capable of activating this brain mechanism. Remarkably, this intervention facilitates an immediate improvement of speech fluency, achieved through a subtle auditory modification, in a very reliable and efficient manner.

We are specifically seeking individuals between the ages of 8 and 45 with a moderate to severe stutter, preferably living in Germany.

As a participant, you will benefit from being among the first to experience FluxBuds technology firsthand. Additionally, you will have the privileged option to receive the final product as a beta tester.

The study is conducted either in the Psychology Lab of the University of Bamberg. It is also possible to come to your location with our Mobile Lab.

After receiving your request, our team will review your information and reach out to you within 1-2 working days. We’ll discuss conjointly your eligibility and potential involvement in either our current or upcoming studies.

Yes, you can let us know that you are interested and we will get back to you, once a new trial is in preparation.

The registry is informal and does not oblige to any participation. Withdrawing for whatever reason is possible at any time.
