Team effort is the thing! The new hearing technology, specifically the Resound Quattro is quite impressive.
iphone use and streaming of calls and audio as well as detailed adjustments that patients can make of the sound, speech, and noise management is wonderful. If a hearing aid is lost, patients can easily find them through the app. Full rechargability with lithium ion internal batteries means long term rechargability and lower costs and no need to change batteries. This helps many with dexterity and vision concerns. The benefits of the new hearing aid technology make for some great patient experiences. How about for me, the Audiologist? I can now assist remotely with adjustments to the hearing aid settings through Cloud based processing. A patient can be across the world and I can assist them!
A patient and I have been communicating in regard to her iphone connectivity and she found a solution simply by using the app. Just one step on the control, as she said, meant such a nice improvement in her hearing experience with her family!
User controls, coupled with training and practice, results in success in many way. How easy is that!
