Oticon Government Services participated in the Joint Defense Veterans Audiology Conference (JDVAC), the annual meeting between the Association of VA Audiologists (AVAA) and the Military Audiology Association (MAA). This is the 15th consecutive year that Oticon has supported the national conference that provides opportunity for networking and collaboration between the audiologists treating our active duty service men and women and those working with our nation’s Veterans.
At the Oticon exhibit, Government Services team members offered training and hands-on experience with Oticon More™ and showcased the comprehensive portfolio of Oticon life-changing technology available through Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense, and other federal agencies. Conference participants were introduced to the Oticon Companion app, the new all-in-one solution that allows veterans to easily control and personalize their hearing aids with features to find my hearing aid for lost devices, manage connected devices and receive remote counseling and programming from their hearing care professional when needed.
During the conference’s educational podium and poster sessions, Thomas Behrens, Chief of Audiology, Oticon A/S and Senior Researcher Sébastien Santurette shared the newest research on advances in amplification of sudden sounds and improved listening support in wind situations. The Oticon Government Services team also conducted a special pre-conference training seminar for VA audiologists, focused on Oticon More and the features of the Polaris™ platform.
