Unitron Hearing Aids
Unitron is a Canadian hearing aid manufacturer founded in 1964 in what is considered Canada’s Silicon Valley. Unitron is committed to making life better through innovation. Along with the National Centre for Audiology at Western University, Unitron tests hearing instruments on real people and receive feedback from audiologists and product experts. Unitron shapes their hearing instruments based on feedback and comments from these tests before they are released to the market. As a global leader, Unitron supports community efforts such as the Global Foundation for Children with Hearing Loss and Hear the World Foundation.
North is Unitron’s newest processing platform, and provides Unitron hearing aid wearers with clearer sound signals and sound quality. SoundNav is programmed with precise classifications of sound environments, especially for speech recognition. There are four channels dedicated for clearer conversation: conversation in quiet, in a small group, in a crowd, and in noise. With a 101 decibel dynamic range, Unitron hearing aid wearers experience a full range of sounds without distortion. In addition to SoundNav, Speech Zone 2 and Sound Conductor features work in conjunction to give Unitron hearing aid wearers a natural sound experience.
Unitron TrueFit Software and Flex
With the understanding that hearing is a very personal experience, Unitron’s TrueFit software gives wearers control over what and how they hear. TrueFit Software is an interactive system that allows wearers to work with their audiologists toward the best hearing solution. TrueFit Software provides a log of data based on the wearer’s listening experience, which enables hearing professionals to make better adjustments and fine-tuning to your hearing aid to improve the listening experience.
Unitron’s Flex program allows wearers to wear Unitron hearing aids on a trial basis, so that wearers may experience the difference in listening with Unitron – and also for Unitron to archive the preferences and listening experience of the patient throughout the day.
According to surveys, 84% of Flex customers believe that the trial experience improves their own experience with hearing aids; 83% of Flex customers report an increase in the number of patients purchasing Unitron hearing aids; and 82% of Flex customers report that the trial period helps to fit higher technology levels to hearing needs.
