What does VocalSTRAW™ SVOT do?
Semi Occluded Vocal Tract (SOVT) is a set of vocal exercises designed to train the posturing of the vocal folds. Traditionally, SOVT exercises increase the resistance in the throat when voicing is produced through various sized tubes. By singing or voicing through tubes or straws, back pressure is created against the vocal folds. This backpressure helps the vocal folds vibrate with less effort, expand pitch range, improve breath management, and position the vibrating folds for the most efficient use.
Instead of a series of different sized tubes or straws, VocalSTRAW uses a stainless steel tube with engineered holes that are closed off by adjusting a sliding tube to create backpressure, helping decrease the constriction of the larynx and surrounding muscles caused by misuse, over-use, or vocal fatigue. VocalSTRAW can also improve the aged voice, the weakened voice, and other voice problems such as bowed vocal folds.
