HIMSA has announced on September 1 the upcoming release of Noahlink Wireless, the first industry-standard device for programming Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) enabled hearing instruments.
The Noahlink Wireless programmer provides a completely wireless interface between your fitting computer and a patient wearing BLE-enabled hearing aids.
“The age of BLE-enabled hearing instruments is on our doorstep,” stated Niels Munksgaard, Managing Director at HIMSA. “This is why the industry’s largest manufacturers have gotten together to design a common industry standard device for programming these new instruments.”
Noahlink Wireless has been developed with the guidance and cooperation of HIMSA’s six partner companies - ReSound, Oticon, Sivantos, Sonova, Starkey, and Widex. It is ready to support BLE-enabled hearing instruments from these companies and more.
“As additional hearing instrument manufacturers develop their own BLE products,” said Munksgaard, “We are confident that they will also see the value in using this common industry standard for programming their BLE-enabled hearing instruments.”
Noahlink Wireless will be sold through HIMSA distributors starting in the autumn of 2016.
