Siemens Hearing Instruments recently held its first “Active Kids and Teens BestSound” training event at its New Jersey facility. Thirty hearing care professionals from around the country attended the two-day meeting, which focused on product solutions and patient counseling geared to children, adolescents or tweens, and teens.
Attendees spent the first day learning about Siemens’ Active Kids and Teens products, as well as hands-on software training. Johnnie Sexton, founder and executive director of The CARE Project, also spoke about Siemens’ partnership with his organization in developing a module dedicated to teens and tweens with hearing loss.
The second day concluded with four breakout sessions including a factory tour, live wireless listening demonstrations, live FM demonstrations and a hands-on training session where participants worked with live instruments to exchange battery doors for DAI compatibility, attach audio shoes, and more. The company’s next “Active Kids and Teens BestSound” event is planned for Spring 2015.
