We are finally about to receive the Velocity hearing aids from Sonic Innovations. According to the trainings I have attended a few months ago, it features some benefits that are sorely needed, such as a more adaptive feedback canceller, data logging, speech prompts (it talks to you to let you know what program you are in and when the battery is low, etc), and a host of other upgrades.
I will post once we start to fit them on our first patients.
By the way, they are a publicly traded company on the NASDAQ under SNCI for those of you interested. They have scheduled their Q2 earnings call on 7/31 at 5:00 PM EST…interesting to see what it does on the price of the stock.
