gaelan medical reveals a smart helmet to treat mental disorders

The percentage of young adults experiencing certain types of mental health disorders around the world has increased significantly over the last decade. We can blame our increasingly digital way of life, the impact of social media, or various other social and even environmental factors. But regardless of what the root cause is, the impact is always the same: people living less satisfying lives. The good news is that there are many health-tech companies that are actively trying to treat mental disorders using state-of-the-art technology. Among them is UAE-based healthcare and beauty distribution company Gaelan Medical.

During Arab Health 2021, a global healthcare event that took place in June at the Dubai World Trade Center, Gaelan Medical unveiled its smart helmet, which uses artificial intelligence and deep transcranial magnetic stimulation to treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and smoking.

“The new device uses innovative technology, which requires less time and offers maximum comfort to the patients,” said Ammar Martini, Board Directors Member and Medical Scientific Officer at Gaelan Medical.

The helmet is able to reach deep inside the brain and target a specific region through a method called transcranial stimulation, making it completely non-invasive and thus comfortable for its user.

Now that the helmet has been officially revealed to the whole world, Gaelan Medical would like to make it available to as many people as possible. “We have already built a base of integral partnerships in the region, and we look forward to expanding our relations, developing along the way a better future with care and cure,” said Bino John, Division Head at Gaelan Medical during the Arab Health 2021 event.

Hopefully, smart health products such as Gaelan Medical’s helmet will soon be not only available across the world but also affordable enough so that all people who suffer from mental health issues can use them.

Truecaller, a well-known app for identifying and blocking spam calls, is enhancing its services by allowing users to create AI versions of their voices. The new feature, available to those with access to Truecaller’s AI Assistant, stems from a partnership with Microsoft and its Azure AI Speech tool, allowing the generation of realistic AI voices that accurately mimic users’ speech patterns and tone.

“This groundbreaking capability not only adds a touch of familiarity and comfort for the users but also showcases the power of AI in transforming the way we interact with our digital assistants,” explained Truecaller product director and general manager Raphael Mimoun in a recent blog post.

The AI Assistant in Truecaller screens incoming calls, informing recipients of a caller’s purpose. Based on this information, users can decide whether to answer the call themselves or let the AI Assistant handle it.

When the feature was introduced in 2022, users could only choose from a collection of preset voices. The ability to record one’s own voice represents a significant step towards the complete personalization of the service.

Azure AI Speech, showcased during the last Build conference, only recently added a personal voice feature that lets people record and replicate voices. Microsoft explained in a blog post, however, that Personal Voice is available on a limited basis and only for specific use cases like voice assistants.

To maintain ethical standards, Microsoft’s Azure AI Speech automatically adds watermarks to AI-generated voices. Additionally, a code of conduct requires companies to obtain full consent from individuals being recorded and prohibits impersonation.
