Up to 20 percent of the world population suffers from hearing loss. For the hearing technology company Jacoti, this is not just a medical problem, but also a consumer challenge. Jacoti has created a solution with its medical software applications and with that the first CE marked software-only hearing aid in the world. The CE certification has been granted by the highly respected Notified Body BSI.
"Receiving a Quality Management ISO 13485 certification and CE Mark approval for one of the first medical software applications and the first software hearing aid in the world demonstrates the ability of our team to efficiently design, develop and gain regulatory approval for innovative products that build a bridge between medical and consumer technology, one that is safe, effective and reliable," says
"Hearing loss and the related communication problems are a major obstruction for children in their schooling phase. In education, losing the ability to 'listen' can be a breaking point in the fragile communication chain. If not managed, it will be a burden throughout an individual's life, with major social and economic impact. Low cost and easily accessible solutions, as developed by Jacoti, will be a turning point for the availability of hearing technology in fast developing countries," said Prof. Dr.
Jacoti ListenApp makes it possible for physicians, healthcare providers and medical experts to have remote access to consumers/patients. This functionality is supported by a remote server to provide system analysis, monitoring, and system optimisation.
Therefore, Jacoti believes that hearing loss compensation and customisation of the audio to the individual needs of the users should be part of all computer platforms with an audio output. With this in mind, Jacoti has developed Inthear®, a proprietary software library that applies real-time hearing loss compensation to audio signals. It offers a cross platform Application Programming Interface (API), which is used by all Jacoti products that provide hearing loss compensation. Together with smartphone and computer manufacturers, Jacoti is exploring innovative ways to integrate the Inthear® API into computers, consumer devices and smartphones.
