NationsHearing, LLC , Plantation, Florida, announced it is debuting new hearing technology at CES 2019. The company is focused on a technology-driven and outcomes-based hearing healthcare approach for consumers, patients, health plans, partners, and providers across all channels, with a mission is to improve the overall health of people who have hearing loss. In order to accomplish this, NationsHearing has partnered with hearX Group, a developer of disruptive mobile technologies that help detect and prevent hearing loss.
Together, they are bringing to market what are said to be “state-of-the-art” hearing devices and the latest technologies in tele-audiology services that can help make hearing quick, convenient, simple, and affordable for millions of people who have hearing loss.
Among the products NationsHearing will have on hand at CES are:
- A tele-audiology solution that is said to allow for end-to-end remote hearing assessments through the selection and provision of appropriate hearing aids. Remotely adjusted hearing aids are fully supported.
- A full suite of hearing amplification devices designed to cater to what the company describes as the “entire spectrum of hearing loss,” including next-generation, direct-to-consumer hearing aids through traditional hearing aids.
- The “world’s first” smartphone-based otoscope that uses artificial intelligence to look for common diseases of the ear and offers clinically validated diagnostic support.
In addition to providing hearing aids from most of the major hearing aid manufacturers, NationsHearing announced that they are the exclusive provider of all products designed, developed, and manufactured by Olive Union, a manufacturer of next-generation hearing aids and hearables that use smart-sound algorithms and Bluetooth technology.
Retail and health plan representatives can experience a Digital Hearing Center in a sample store setting by taking a free hearing test at one of the designated touchscreen monitors and receiving personalized results via email in minutes. In addition, CES attendees will be able to experience a demonstration of NationsHearing’s tele-audiology solution and other products.
Glenn M. Parker, MD, Founder and CEO of NationsHearing, said, “We are the first company in the hearing industry to use products, services, technology, and interventions to improve health outcomes. This is an exciting time for NationsHearing as we’ve revolutionized the way people should think about hearing healthcare. We’re making available the latest hearing healthcare solutions in the US and globally.”
Nic Klopper, CEO of hearX Group, said, “We are excited about the partnership with NationsHearing as both companies contribute complementary skills required to disrupt the current hearing healthcare service delivery model. Our industry-leading technologies, which include artificial intelligence, tele-audiology, and clinical and hearing screening tests, combined with the infrastructure of NationsHearing, will revolutionize the way in which people experience hearing healthcare services. We welcome you to the future of hearing healthcare.”
Owen Song, Founder and CEO of Olive Union, said, “We have always been looking for a group of people who share the same vision as we do, and we cannot express how excited we are to discover and work with NationsHearing. We truly believe NationsHearing will fully deliver the potential of next generation hearing aids and hearables as the exclusive provider of Olive Union in the US.”
