Hands-Free HME Systems
The ability to speak freely, without needing to use a finger to occlude your stoma, is a common desire for people who have undergone laryngectomy surgery. If suitable, a Hands-Free system once fitted into your baseplate, tube or button, enables you to produce hands-free speech whilst also gaining the benefits of a Heat and Moisture Exchange (HME) cassette.
