Beltone announced that they will add the Redux professional drying system to participating Beltone locations across the country, helping patients to keep their hearing aids dry so those aids can function their best.
“Moisture is the most common reason for hearing aid malfunction and frustration,” said Reuben Zielinski, Redux’s President and Co-founder. “We’re proud to be a part of Beltone’s commitment to providing patients with the best hearing care and hearing instrument care in the industry.”
With the push of a button, the Redux system “safely and completely removes moisture from hearing aids and hearables in just minutes while providing verification of water removed,” according to the company. Redux’s patented technology creates a vacuum to lower the evaporation point of water and then safely applies heat to remove moisture from both traditionally powered and rechargeable devices, the company said in its announcement.
In the June issue of Hearing Review, Matt Hay examines the negative effect of moisture on hearing aid performance and details how a Redux drying system can help preserve the life cycle of hearing aids, providing a necessary service for hearing care practices to offer.
Hearing care professionals report “immediate improved performance in 77% of all hearing aids treated with Redux.” The in-office system is designed to “save office staff time, reduce costly instrument returns, and improve the patient experience through proactive care.”
“Beltone is committed to a patient-centric approach to better hearing. Our locations already offer one of the most comprehensive hearing care programs nationwide,” said Ron Gleitman, Beltone VP of Operations. “Partnering with Redux is a natural extension of that philosophy. Redux is a data-backed solution for keeping aids performing their best so our customers can live their best.”
