Beltone announced two new opportunities that further elevate their standard of care through collaborations with Lantos Technologies and OtoSet by SafKan Health which Beltone has made available to their independent network of local business owners. By leveraging its nationwide network of independent businesses, Beltone is able to “identify and source technology at a scale and advantageous price point beyond what an independent practice can do on its own making a meaningful difference for those who are part of the Beltone network,” the company said in its announcement.

Beltone offers the advantages of the Lantos 3D Ear Scanning System to its owner network as an additional way to simplify the journey for patients in need of hearing care, the company said. Lantos’ technology creates a 3D rendering of the unique geometry of the ear, enabling “more efficient production of custom hearing devices for a more comfortable fit and better sound quality.” This “innovative and less-invasive process will allow Beltone providers to create a more comprehensive and seamless experience for their patients while enhancing the already amazing benefits of Beltone hearing aids through an impeccable custom fit,” according to the announcement.

Beltone also offers the benefits of OtoSet, said to be “the first automated and FDA-cleared ear cleaning device clinically proven to remove mild-to-severe earwax impactions.” OtoSet combines and controls two methods of earwax removal, irrigation and micro-suction, which draws out earwax for an “easy, safe, effective, and mess-free procedure.”

“As a provider, I’ve been dreaming of working with scan technology for years, and now it’s a reality that I get to share with patients thanks to 3D ear scanning with Lantos,” said Co-Owner & Co-Founder of Beltone West, Kory Castro. “As a practice owner, I view it as one of the biggest differentiators we can use to stand out from competitors. With the industry changing so rapidly with OTC, I believe it is extremely important to focus on providing an unparalleled patient experience.”

“OtoSet works very well and removes the wax so much different than other methods and our practitioners have really enjoyed transitioning to this method of wax removal,” said CEO & Founder of Beltone New England, Michael Andreozzi. “In the marketplace today, I truly feel we always have to be a step ahead of other hearing care practices and OtoSet allows us to do this as well as keep our patients inside of our offices versus referring them to outside doctors or medical centers with excellent results.”

These collaborations are rolling out now at participating Beltone locations across the US.
