Honors mark the fourth straight year of CES Innovation recognition for Oticon
SOMERSET, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#awards–For the fourth consecutive year, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) has recognized Oticon for their excellence in developing breakthrough hearing technology. Oticon Xceed, the world’s most powerful hearing aid, was named a CES 2020 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Health & Wellness category, while Oticon RemoteCare, a new e-health solution that streamlines patient-provider aftercare services, was recognized as an honoree in the Tech for a Better World category.
The CES Innovation Awards serve as a proving ground for innovative technologies that disrupt industries and address the world’s most complicated challenges. With the addition of this year’s CES honors, Oticon has now been recognized 10 times, including three top-ranked Best of Innovation category wins.
“Oticon is driven by one goal: to test the limits of what’s possible in order to develop technology that makes an immediate impact in the lives of men, women and children with hearing loss,” said Gary Rosenblum, President of Oticon. “We know the instruments we create are a lifeline, connecting people with hearing loss to the outside world, and we will never cease innovating. This year’s CES Innovation honors signal our steadfast commitment to continually testing limits that enable us to bring solutions like Oticon Xceed and Oticon RemoteCare to patients.”
Featuring powerful OpenSound Navigator™ and BrainHearing™ technology, Oticon Xceed improves speech clarity, reduces listening effort, and increases short-term recall for individuals with severe-to-profound hearing loss. By scanning a wearer’s surroundings 100 times per second and analyzing sounds from all directions, Oticon Xceed supports how the brain naturally makes sense of sound, creating a fuller, more authentic listening experience in even the most challenging environments.
The Oticon RemoteCare App, which will launch in 2020, is an e-health solution designed to increase hearing aid wearers’ access to their hearing care providers and enable individuals to receive the ongoing care needed to take full advantage of their devices and enhance their overall quality of life. By enabling data communication between users’ hearing aids and their hearing care professionals, the Oticon RemoteCare App allows providers to fine tune and adjust hearing aid settings remotely, and lets patients communicate with their providers from the convenience of their homes — a major advantage for older adults with disabilities, medical issues, or lack of transportation, as well as wearers living in rural areas.
