Three-dimensional printable ultrasound transducer stabilization system (2018)
When using ultrasound imaging of the tongue for speech recording/research, submental transducer stabilization is required to prevent the ultrasound transducer from translating or rotating in relation to the tongue. An iterative prototype of a lightweight three-dimensional-printable wearable ultrasound transducer stabilization system that allows flexible jaw motion and free head movement is presented. The system is completely non-metallic, eliminating interference with co-recorded signals, thus permitting co-collection and co-registration with articulometry systems. A motion study of the final version demonstrates that transducer rotation is limited to 1.25 and translation to 2.5 mm— well within accepted tolerances.

Three speech sounds, one motor action: Evidence for speech-motor disparity from English flap production Derrick, Donald; Stavness, I.; Gick, B. (University of Canterbury. New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain & Behaviour, 2015)The assumption that units of speech production bear a one-to-one relationship to speech motor actions pervades otherwise widely varying theories of speech motor behavior.
