Healthcare Technologies and Methods, LLC (HTM) announced that it has been recognized at the third annual Hearing Technology Innovator Awards for its Maudey Hearing Aid Training and Communication System. Maudey won this award in the Remote Care category.
With the advent of over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aids this month, Maudey offers a “very timely and essential tool that enables hearing care professionals and retailers to provide more cost-effective training and support for hearing aid wearers.”
The development and clinical testing of Maudey was supported by $4 million in Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants from the National Institute on Aging (NIA), one of NIH’s 27 institutes and centers. Maudey’s innovations, which “empower consumers, benefit their providers and differentiate them from other teleaudiology technologies,” are said to be protected by a US patent and other US and international patents pending. Maudey is offered to consumers through their hearing aid providers. For more information about Maudey, visit: www.Maudey.com.
“HTM’s talented and experienced interdisciplinary team have applied their audiology, usability for the aging and health literacy skills to create a system that is extremely easy to use for all consumers – including older adults and others who are… are not tech savvy,” said Alan Lettz, co-founder, president and CEO of HTM. “As we enter the new era of OTC hearing aids, joining prescription hearing aids as consumer options, Maudey’s ability to streamline the training and support processes will provide a foundation for the provider’s continued effectiveness and profitability. In addition, Maudey will simplify and accelerate the use, maintenance and fitting of hearing aids for consumers.”
Hearing Health & Technology Matters (HHTM) recognizes technological innovations and achievements in the hearing aid industry through its annual Hearing Technology Innovator Awards program.
