ReSound Introduces First Patient Kit
Bloomington, Minn October 28 —
ReSound has announced the launch of its First Patient Kit, a wireless fitting kit designed to help audiologists with their first ReSound Alera patient fitting.
Because Alera uses 2.4 GHz wireless technology, it can be easily fitted without the use of a bulky device to connect the hearing aid to the fitting software. All that is needed is the AirLink fitting accessory, which is inserted into the USB port of a computer. This technology, though new to hearing aids, has been proven in the gaming industry and in the use of wireless keyboards.
“A big benefit for the hearing aid dispenser is the ability to fit Alera completely wirelessly,” said Laurel Christensen, ReSound's chief audiology officer. “Gone are the days of hunting around for the right cables and the patient having to wear a hook around their neck. For the first time, fitting is directly from computer to hearing aid.”
The First Patient Kit includes the following instruments and accessories to help audiologists with their first patient fitting:
- Two ReSound Alera hearing instruments
- Unite TV streamer
- Unite Remote Control
- Unite Phone Clip
- ReSound Airlink to enable wireless USB programming
The release of Alera and Unite marks a significant step forward in hearing solutions. Users are able to tune directly into their TV and connect their mobile phone to their hearing aid via Bluetooth technology. Users can participate in conversations while tuned into devices because environmental noise is not blocked out.
“Alera and Unite provide significant consumer benefits,” said Christensen, “and the release of our First Patient Kit makes it easier than ever for audiologists to deliver high quality hearing solutions to their patients.”
