Question

What are three main components and features about the Ponto 4?

 

    Answer

    1. The Velox S platform and OpenSound Navigator. This is the new fast and powerful chipset which allows us to introduce OpenSound Navigator into the Ponto 4. OpenSound Navigator has unique technology which allows for 360-degree access to sound.
    2. The world's smallest bone anchored sound processor. The Ponto 4 is 27% smaller than the Ponto 3, combining discretion, performance, and reliability.
    3. Truly wireless options, now and in the future. The world's first bone anchored sound processor that can be connected to the Internet. Using the IFTTT network and the Oticon ON App, it can connect and interact with numerous services and devices. As technology improves, Ponto 4 can easily be updated.

    The course will provide a thorough review of Bone Anchored Hearing System patient indications, starting with the basics of how bone conduction works. It will also explain why providing amplification with a BAHS device can be so beneficial for those patients that fulfill the indication criteria. In addition, the presentation will look at when a patient is candidate for bilateral fitting, and if they are not which side to fit. Lastly, the course will explain why increasing the MFO of a BAHS device benefits all BAHS candidates, and take a brief look at the effect different methods of sound transmission (available with a BAHS device) can have.
