Local company joins Parkinson's fight with gadget

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - A new study finds a device developed in Greenville could benefit those with Parkinson's Disease.

SpeechEasy, developed by Greenville-based Janus Development Group, was originally designed to help alleviate stuttering, but a study by Rush University in Chicago found the device could benefit those with Parkinson's.

The device is attached to the ear like a hearing aid, and it changes how the person wearing the device hears his voice to better help them talk.

One of the symptoms of Parkinson's is speech problems.
