London Hearing is the first Hearing Care Practice in London to launch the revolutionary new touch control hearing instrument from Starkey Laboratories. Starkey Laboratories, one of the world’s leading hearing technology companies, is excited to introduce the new S Series™ hearing aid with Sweep™ Technology – providing a completely new way to adjust hearing aids. Sweep Technology replaces all of the traditional hearing aid buttons and dials with an innovative touch surface that allows users to adjust volume up or down and change memories with the simple sweep or touch of a finger. Even patients with limited dexterity can easily change their hearing aid settings.
“This technology makes hearing aids both smarter and simpler,” says Mr. Ritesh Patel Hearing Aid Consultant at London Hearing. “Starkey have invested years of research and development to package this advanced touch surface technology into a hearing aid – and it has paid off. Patients in clinical trails have overwhelmingly preferred Sweep Technology to traditional controls.”
Traditional hearing aid buttons, switches and dials are often difficult for patients to find and manipulate. With Sweep Technology, there is no mechanical movement required for activation, no push buttons that oxidize and fail with time, and no openings around the volume control wheel that allow moisture and dirt to enter the hearing aid. The sweep surface is a single seamless control, giving patients full access to volume, memory and standby controls – smarter technology that makes patients’ lives simpler.
Here’s how it works:
- Sweeping a finger up increases the volume and sweeping down decreases the volume.
- Memory adjustments are made with a simple touch of the surface.
The new Sweep hearing instrument will be available from London Hearing from 12/01/10. Mr Ritesh Patel Hearing Aid Consultant at London Hearing has been in the business of providing hearing care to the people of London and has helped countless people with hearing loss to enjoy hearing again.
