Vocal Tract Visualization Lab

Vocal Tract Visualization (VTV) lab located at the University Health Network – Toronto Rehabilitation Institute is engaged in cutting edge research using innovative computer gaming modalities to achieve speech rehabilitation for individuals affected by dysarthria and apraxia of speech as an outcome of a neurodegenerative disease or neurological event. Currently, the research focuses on utilization of “serious games” for speech rehabilitation in people diagnosed with Parkinson disease or left hemispheric stroke.
