ZPower to be recognized at Edison Awards Gala on April 21 in New York.
Camarillo, Calif. (February 18, 2016) – The ZPower Rechargeable System for Hearing Aids has been named a 2016 Award Finalist by the internationally renowned Edison Awards™. The distinguished awards, inspired by Thomas Edison’s persistence and inventiveness, recognize innovation, creativity and ingenuity in the global economy.
“It’s exciting to see companies like ZPower continuing Thomas Edison’s legacy of challenging conventional thinking,” said Frank Bonafilia, Edison Awards’ executive director. “Edison Awards recognizes the game-changing products and services, and the teams that brought them to consumers.” Award winners will be announced April 21, 2016 at the Edison Awards Annual Gala, held in the historic ballroom of the Capitale in New York City.
“We are honored to have the ZPower Rechargeable System for Hearing Aids recognized as a game-changing product,” said Sara Sable-Antry, vice president of sales and marketing for ZPower. “Improving the quality of life for hearing aid wearers has always been our goal and I am proud to say we have achieved that. To be recognized is extremely rewarding, but more importantly, recognition like this helps us get the word out to more people who could benefit from our product.”
ZPower’s Rechargeable System for Hearing Aids makes it easy to convert many new and existing hearing aids to rechargeable technology. The ZPower Rechargeable System offers a full day of continuous power, charges overnight in the hearing aids, takes the place of an estimated 200 disposable batteries, and lasts a full year. The ZPower hearing aid battery is replaced once every year by a hearing care professional, so the patient never has to touch a hearing aid battery again.
Edison Award nominees are judged by more than 3,000 senior business executives and academics from across the nation whose votes acknowledge the finalists’ success in meeting the award’s stringent criteria of quality.
