ReSound, the technology leader in hearing solutions, has released results from a recent study into the iSolate™ nanotech protective coating for hearing instruments.
In a review of 50,000 hearing aids sold, the iSolate™ nanotech protective coating was shown to decrease moisture and debris related repairs by 50% in the first six months.
"The benefits of iSolate™ nanotech become more evident with time," said Jennifer Groth, Global Audiology, ReSound. "We expect even better results at the 9 - 12 month mark."
iSolate™ nanotech works by coating all elements of the hearing aids with a thin protective layer that bonds at a molecular level with the internal and external components, shielding them without affecting their performance. Liquids or moisture coming into contact with any element of the hearing aids - including internal elements - will simply roll off without being absorbed.
The ReSound iSolate™ nanotech technology treats completed devices, not just individual vulnerable components as others may do. The application process, which is done in a vacuum chamber, ensures global coating of all components inside and out.
"With iSolate™ nanotech, we're able to offer more durable hearing instruments that have greater resistance to moisture, humidity, oil and wax," said Groth. "This translates into more satisfied patients and fewer returns and repairs."
ReSound is the industry technology leader in hearing solutions. Since the company’s inception in 1943, ReSound has been responsible for a number of hearing industry firsts, including Wide Dynamic Range Compression (WDRC), Digital Feedback Suppression (DFS) and the first open-standard digital chip. Headquartered in Ballerup, Denmark, GN ReSound is part of The GN ReSound Group, one of the world’s largest provider of hearing instruments and diagnostic audiological instrumentation.
