The question of wellbeing and how hearing tech can be of use in other health areas has been brought sharply into focus by recent innovations. We highlight a key observation on this from Phonak in our collection of quotes from three years of Audio Infos' Technology Focus articles, authored by the British Irish Hearing Instrument Manufacturers Association (BIHIMA).
Stefan Launer, Senior Vice President of Audiology and Health Innovation at Phonak:
"The ear is a perfect place to monitor vital signs because it allows us to reliably measure core body temperature, cardiovascular parameters, respiration rate, and physical activity, with high precision. We see more and more applications emerging in this space. Integrating various sensor technologies in hearing aids would open new avenues to a more holistic model in hearing healthcare in a broader context of healthy living.”
