Hearing impairment is the partial or total loss of hearing. There are approximately 34 million hearing impaired children in the world. The equipment used as a means of communication to improve interaction with society is very expensive, so in this study was built an electronic device with the ability to recognize some words configured as an emergency message. This equipment will be used as a basic means of communication for hearing impaired children at a very low price. The equipment consists

This device was tested on approximately 20 people caring for hearing impaired children, obtaining a measure of approval of approximately 74%. This is the first step in research that we plan to continue to reduce health gaps and improve communication for children with disabilities. Our group works for preventive health, reducing health gaps in the most vulnerable population.
