Digital mental health company Sonde Health has announced the launch of 'Sonde Mental Fitness,' a mental health solution that utilizes voice detection technology as a biomarker to assess a user's mental well-being.
Delivered as an application programming interface (API) for developers of health systems and services, 'Sonde Mental Health' provides a simple and affordable solution for mental health monitoring. The new tool is powered by audio signal processing technology and machine learning algorithms, which together are used to analyze a user's vocal features to detect fluctuations in their mental states.
While the technology itself is quite complex, using the tool is very straightforward. All users are required to do is record a 30-second voice sample by responding to a series of basic questions, such as "How was your day?"
