Question

What wireless platform does the new Livio AI and Livio hearing devices use?

Answer

Livio AI and Livio have a dual wireless platform.  Near Field Magnetic Induction (NFMI) for ear-to-ear functionality.  For wireless connectivity, 2.4 GHz is used.  

What forms of connectivity does the 2.4 GHz platform provide?

2.4 GHz is used for connection with mobile devices, like smart phones and tablets.  With Apple devices, the proprietary Apple protocol is also used to allow for direct streaming of phone calls and media.  Starkey also has a proprietary 2.4 GHz system for connection with wireless accessories.

What accessories are available for patients?

There is a TV streamer that can be paired with an infinite number of devices.  This is nice for families with multiple members that are hearing impaired. Or, for retirement communities with a TV room.  The TV signal is streamed directly to the Livio AI or Livio devices.

There is also the Remote Microphone+.  It can function as a companion mic with automatic omni and directional mic modes based on how it is positioned.  It can be paired to devices via Bluetooth, put into a Telecoil mode, connected to an FM system or plugged hardwired into a device.  On a full charge, it can stream for up to 10 hours with a range of about 65 feet.

Any other accessories?

There is also a remote control.  It gives full control over volume, memory selection, mute, home setting, and a multifunction button.  A nice feature is that the remote control has a 5-year battery that doesn’t need to be charged or replaced.

Infection control has long been considered an important issue in hearing healthcare because of the wide range of patients served and the nature of the services provided. Infection control extends beyond the common sense practices of hand washing and good housekeeping. New harmful microbes arise, old microbes reemerge, and as a profession we must remain vigilant and prepared to protect our patients, our practices, and ourselves from the infectious dangers now and next. This course will discuss the principles of infection control, outline standard precautions, and identify strategies to manage patient contact in times of outbreak for a hearing healthcare practice.

As new diseases emerge and society becomes more mobile, the threat of disease spread in our professional workplaces is real and serious. By nature, hearing healthcare professionals interact frequently with vulnerable individuals, namely the elderly and very young. These individuals present in our practices with health conditions and other factors that place them at high risk for contracting or spreading infection. It is critical that hearing professionals are practicing in a manner that ensures the safety of themselves, staff and especially patients. This course will focus on how disease may spread in the professional workplace, the development and most importantly implementation of an exemplary infection control protocol, including ways to manage patient connections in times of outbreak.
