In Indianapolis Oticon previews the expanded Oticon Opn portfolio via an immersive exhibit (#808) that brings the benefits of Opn’s innovative new technology and features to life. Hearing care professionals looking for a new paradigm that will enable them to transform everyday life for even more patients will find it at this year’s Oticon exhibit.
An augmented reality demonstration allows conference participants to take control of the soundscape and experience how Opn significantly improves speech understanding in even the most challenging listening situations. Using smartphones and HD headsets, visitors explore simple and complex 3D scenarios where Opn’s ultra-fast processing enables access to all important sounds and handles multiple speakers simultaneously. Interactive “smart home” displays show how the world’s first internet-connected hearing aid unlocks the power for the Internet of Things to link to and control an endless variety of everyday devices in and outside the home.
Quick Solutions presentations by Oticon audiologists, offered daily throughout exhibit hours, give conference participants an opportunity to gain knowledge and earn CEU credits. The mini-learning modules last just 15 minutes and provide insights into a variety of topics including: Connectivity Without Compromise, Oticon’s Approach to the Noise Problem and Treating Patients with Tinnitus.
