Question

Since Phonak Sky V, CROS II and Roger Focus have been available in the market for a while, are there any new changes you have made to them?

 

Answer

Angela Pelosi: In fact, there are a few additional options now provided to make the CROS II more child-friendly.   With the launch of our first Sky family, it was obvious that the pediatric color portfolio was a hit with children and their parents.  And so we wanted to be able to extend the same options to those children wearing CROS II with Sky V.   The CROS II-13 model now also comes in the fun Mix & Match color combinations of the Sky V.  

 The CROS II-13 BTE has an optional earhook, which now comes in the 7 Sky V colors and is great for added retention with a well fitted earmold.  We understand most pediatric professionals recommend CROS for children old enough to understand where sound is coming from, but also know they are faced with many families who are keen to try this solution as early as possible. So as an added measure, the CROS earhook was tested to meet the IEC standards for mechanical strength and security, and a tamperproof battery door is available if required.  

What other initiatives does Phonak have for children with unilateral hearing loss?

Angela: With all of our pediatric developments we will continue to provide the best possible non-surgical options for unilateral hearing loss in both quiet and noise. Phonak will also be hosting a 2-day conference in Philadelphia in 2017 dedicated to the latest research and happenings in the field of pediatric unilateral hearing loss (UHL). We look forward to your readers joining us for this unique pediatric conference October 22-24, 2017. The UHL conference agenda and registration information is now available on the Trainings & Events page on www.phonakpro.com.
