Otovation, King of Prussia, Pa, introduces the OTOPod M2 diagnostic audiometer and hearing instrument programmer.

Similar in form to the company’s patented OTOPod M1 audiometer, the M2 adds capabilities to program a variety of Widex hearing aids, including the mind440, mind330, Passion, Inteo, AIKIA, Flash, REAL, Senso, Bravo, and Bravissimo product families. Support for the OTOPod M2 has been added to Widex’s upcoming Compass 5.0 software, which is used in conjunction with Otovation’s Symphony NOAH Module software to provide a complete diagnostic testing and instrument fitting system with the uniquely portable M2 device, according to the company.

"We have worked closely with Widex and some key partners to thoroughly field test the product, and its performance has been very well received," says Mark Exley, VP of sales and business development for Otovation. " The OTOPod M2 is a great example of our product design approach, as we work to bring new ideas and exciting products to the hearing care services market."

The new version of Symphony and NOAH Module software accompanying the release of the OTOPod M2 include new features such as:
—Complete session browsing within the Symphony NOAH Module
—Enhanced workflow for switching between tone and speech testing
—Onscreen and printed reports from within the NOAH module
—Better support for low-resolution screen displays
—Additional language support for Danish, Dutch, and Italian markets
—Support for the Windows 7 operating system
—A variety of minor enhancements for additional flexibility in testing

Concurrent with release of the M2, Otovation is now shipping an updated version of its Symphony and Symphony NOAH Module software, which offer a number of new features. The new Symphony will now be included with all new OTOPod M1 and M2 devices, as well as Amplitude T-Series models.
