Somerset, NJ — Oticon Inc has introduced Intigai, a small, invisible custom-made micro completely-in-the-canal (CIC) hearing aid that targets first-time users who want a discreet hearing instrument.

“We know that most first-time users want a discreet solution and nearly half of them want an invisible one,” said Peer Lauritsen, Oticon’s president, in the press release. “Intigai builds on the enormous appeal of Intiga as a traffic builder, especially for people who may need the promise of invisibility to take the first step to better hearing.”

Intigai is designed with the advanced audiological features of Oticon’s Intiga line, as well as the benefits of the natural acoustics of the external ear for a clear and comfortable sound experience. It includes Oticon’s proprietary SpeechGuard technology, which provides access to vital speech cues to improve speech understanding and reduce listening effort in difficult listening situations.

Besides being discreet, Intigai deep in the canal design will assure patients with active lifestyles that their hearing aid will stay in place and be protected during physical activity. The customized in-the-ear placement also enables patients to easily use the telephone and headphones.
