For the fourth year running, Oticon has been honored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CTA) at its annual trade show for bringing some of the most innovative products to market.
Two Oticon brands won CES 2020 Innovation Awards. One was in the Health & Wellness category, where the Oticon Xceed — a hearing aid for those with severe-to-profound hearing loss — won. Meanwhile, the company’s soon-to-be-released e-health platform RemoteCare won in the Tech for a Better World category.
“We are extremely proud to have Oticon Xceed and Oticon RemoteCare honored by the Consumer Electronics Association,” announced the president of Oticon, Gary Rosenblum. “Our ability to consistently stand out in a competition that includes some of the world’s most cutting-edge consumer technology products and services underscores Oticon’s commitment to develop hearing technology that makes a real difference in people’s lives.”
The Xceed provides a powerful tool for people who’s hearing loss has traditionally been a challenge for the industry. The product provides formidable output without the feedback issues that often plague hearing aids that have to compensate for severe hearing issues. It delivers an auditory environment for users that is less stressful and enhances short-term recall of conversations.
The customer service that RemoteCare will provide is startling. Using Internet connectivity, hearing aids will be able to not only collect data in real time and transfer it to hearing health professionals — but any needed adjustments can then be made remotely. The scheduling of office visits and all the complications they generate will be lessened and users will see performance gains straightaway.
Both products build on Oticon’s long track record of adapting cutting-edge technology to the needs of the hearing impaired.
