The place where subject matter experts across the "World of Hearing" come together to discuss all things hearing health, hearing aids, hearables, consumer audio, and everything in-between.

    102 - When Hearing Aids Alone Aren't Enough: Remote Microphones and TV Listening Devices

    102 - When Hearing Aids Alone Aren't Enough: Remote Microphones and TV Listening Devices

    Dr. Michael Valente returns to make that case that audiologists should consider introducing remote microphones and TV listening devices routinely for their hearing aid patients as add-on accessories. Regular use of remote mics and TV listening devices help address the biggest complaints by hearing aid users, in spite of being well fitting with their devices - difficulty hearing in noise and difficulty hearing at a distance.  

    In the presentation Dr. Valente reviews some of the research surrounding remote microphones, even evidence that shows how remote mics can provide a patient with hearing loss when listening in noise, the ability to hear better than a person with normal hearing!   He also shares how audiologists can counsel patients, reluctant to invest money to try hearing aids, to convert Air Pod Pro2’s into hearing aids and add an inexpensive Bluetooth adapter ($80) to their TV to achieve a very effective TV streamer.

    100 - Innovations in Treating Minimal Hearing Loss – Dr. Brent Edwards, Live from EUHA

    100 - Innovations in Treating Minimal Hearing Loss – Dr. Brent Edwards, Live from EUHA

    In this special presentation, Brent Edwards, Ph.D., explores innovations in treatment for so-called minimal hearing losses. He discusses whether hearing professionals should recommend hearing devices to people with minimal hearing loss, and what research actually tells us about how well people with minimal hearing losses can benefit from hearing devices.   

    The presentation includes research findings from the National Acoustic Laboratories (NAL), where Dr. Edwards serves as Director, into these questions and into the potential use of emerging technology innovations.  We would like to thank the European Union of Hearing Aid Acousticians (EUHA) for allowing us to republish this presentation.

    098 - Robotic Assisted Cochlear Implant Surgery: Interview with Dr. Marlan Hansen and Wade Colburn of iotaMotion

    098 - Robotic Assisted Cochlear Implant Surgery: Interview with Dr. Marlan Hansen and Wade Colburn of iotaMotion

    In this week's special episode, Dave Kemp catches up with Wade Colburn and Dr. Marlan Hansen of iotaMotion, a medtech startup spun out of the University of Iowa Hospitals. The company was recently named 'Innovator of the Year' in the 2022 Hearing Technology Innovator Awards for its iotaSOFT Insertion System - a robotic-assisted insertion technology intended to aid surgeons in the placement of cochlear implant electrode arrays. 

    The iotaSOFT system works by controlling the speed of insertion. The technology is a thumb-sized bone mounted robotic-assisted device that can be used with electrodes across implant manufacturers and was specifically designed for seamless integration in the operating room to enable the surgeon to insert the electrode beyond human capability.
