North is The Way Forward
Unitron, a global innovator of technologically advanced hearing aids, announced the launch of North™, its newest ground-breaking sound processing platform that can distinguish between different types of conversation.
North’s new SoundNav™ technology automatically identifies and classifies seven distinctly different sound environments. Four of those identifications are focused specifically on conversation. Because conversation in different sound environments is what people with hearing loss want most of all.
North™ brings people closer to natural hearing and addresses their number-one desire: understanding conversations in a wide range of situations
Clear Conversation in Every Situation
Normal day to day conversations don’t just happen in nice quiet situations, but they also don't happen in simple noise. The background noise of life varies hugely depending on the situations you are in, whether the listener is in small groups, at large events, in the car or on the street. The technologies in the new platform work together in harmony so that you can experience the best speech understanding along with a really natural sound quality. Not just that, but that you can do so in the widest variety of situations automatically.
The New Hearing Instrument Design
Along with the launch of the North platform, Unitron introduced a new generation of its popular receiver-in-canal (RIC) Moxi™ hearing instruments. The Moxi Fit™ is similar in design to the Moxi Kiss but it delivers a push button and telecoil. Moxi Fit joins Moxi Kiss™ and Moxi Dura™, all available in five technology levels and all built on the North platform.
The new platform is also integrated with the Unitron Flex:trial™ program, which allows us to send patients home with free trial hearing instruments. Unitron also introduced the Flex:upgrade™, which allows us to deliver in-clinic technology upgrades as your hearing needs change and technology demands change.
New Logging Feature
Unitron have also introduced Log It All™, an industry first data logging feature that captures and displays a user’s experiences with their hearing instruments across seven environments regardless of the technology level of the hearing aid.
This gives us the ability to measure the performance of hearing instruments in everyday use, as well as during trial and upgrade situations. It helps us explain the benefits of different technology levels in a personal way. It also allows us to deliver fine tuning in a more focused way.
