REMOTE HEARING AID ADJUSTMENTS

Here at Audiology Innovations, we are proud to offer hearing loss services in Calgary and the surrounding areas.

But a local hearing clinic can only do so much, and there is lots of work to be done. Luckily for us and many of our clients, hearing care has progressed in leaps and bounds in this technological age. In fact, thanks to advancements from Phonak partnered with Microsoft, everything from hearing loss tests to hearing aid adjustments can now be performed remotely via digital interaction. What this means for us is that we are able to help more people get the tools they need in a wider area with greater ease. Here is a little more information about Phonak remote hearing aid adjustments.

WHAT ARE PHONAK’S & OTICON'S REMOTE SUPPORT SERVICES?

Phonak’s Remote Support Service is the first of its kind to offer a digital solution to the problems suffered every day by people with hearing loss.

Phonak's Remote Support Service utilizes a real time device that uses Microsoft's Azure cloud-based technology to adjust any Phonak Audeo Marvel hearing aid from just about anywhere in the world with internet service. Anybody with a hearing aid who has an issue with their device can instantly connect with a hearing care professional or audiologist through the myPhonak app, go over their device issues in real time, and get professional hearing aid adjustments on the go. Note that initial consultations and services are still generally done in office.

HOW TO IMPROVE HEARING ACCESSIBILITY

TELEMEDICINE IS HERE. That is because it is a safe, effective way to provide certain forms of care to people who may otherwise be traveling or unable to make an office visit.

Beyond accessibility though, the Phonak Remote Support Service can actually improve patient outcomes in certain instances. This is usually due to the fact that professionals can assess the unique auditory environment that a patient is experiencing, rather than making adjustments in a standard medical office environment. This allows an extra level of control that just wasn’t possible for hearing care professionals before.

One of the best parts about this technology is that it’s essentially free (the technology aspect, at least). The Remote Support Service package and Audeo Marvel are included with the free download of myPhonak app on both iOS and Android devices. Because of this, the app does not raise the price-point for audiology and hearing care services.

Don’t just take our word about the effectiveness of this remote hearing aid adjustment technology. Check out what other people are saying about Phonak. A cell phone hearing aid app can give people with hearing loss the opportunity for affordable remote hearing care. This can be indispensable for people on the go who struggle with hearing aid control. If you think you could stand to benefit from this new and helpful hearing technology, please do not hesitate to reach out to us for more information at your earliest convenience. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
