Problem awareness is the root of a problem's solution. So it is with Badger by Satellite Displays. Badger is the the world's first closed caption smart badge that converts speech-to-text in real-time with a translation capability in more than 50 languages. When Mike Williston's hearing impaired father was hospitalized medical professionals wearing masks restricted his ability to lip read and therefore he was unable to understand what was being communicated. This inspired the search for a solution. Mike Williston and Peter Sprague diligently worked together until Badger by Satellite Displays was born. The use and application of the real time transcription extends well beyond persons with limited hearing or total hearing loss. The translation capability can serve to ensure adequate communication between health care professionals, hospital patients and/or long term care residents who may have limited or no English capability. Furthermore, many professionals serving these populations originate from non English speaking countries. This oftentimes creates situations where each party is not fully understanding the other, especially problematic when it comes to a person's health and well-being. This scratches the surface of the situations where Badger by Satellite Displays can be the much needed solution to improve communication. Listen in to hear the variety of ways that Badger by Satellite Displays can help you, your friends and family.
