When you have a hearing aid, you have to constantly take it out and put it back in based on the activities of your daily life. That’s not the case with the Aquaris Micon Waterproof Hearing Aid from Siemens.
Eric from Siemens tells Jamie Davis, the Podmedic about the new waterproof, dust proof and shock resistant Aquaris Micon hearing aid they were showing off at the CES Unveiled event. Now there are really no limits to a hearing impaired person’s ability to go out, go swimming, work in their wood shop or any other activity they might want to do. They don’t have to be worried about protecting their hearing aid devices from the environment. The Aquaris Micon hearing aid is completely sealed so they just go about living their daily lives.
Advanced Programmability and No Whistling
It’s important for us to be able to hear everywhere in our daily lives. Communication is a central part of life and with the Aquaris Micon there is new and enhanced processing that allows for programmability and none of the “whistling” audio feedback commonly heard from other hearing aid devices.
The Aquaris Micon hearing aid from Siemens is available now from Audiologists and other specialty healthcare professionals near you. Pricing is variable based upon vendor and region.
You’re bleeding all over your nurse’s iPad but it’s not a problem because she’s got a LifeProof case on that mobile device. Join Health Tech Weekly host Jamie Davis, the Podmedic as he chats with LifeProof CEO, Gary Rayner, in their booth at CES 2013 last week.
Protect Your Devices From Life
LifeProof is all about the things that happen in your life and making sure you don’t have to worry about your expensive mobile devices during those life events. The LifeProof cases make your device waterproof, dirt proof, snow proof and shock proof to military specifications so that when you’re on the job, you don’t have to worry about dropping your iPad or iPhone to the floor or in a dirty medical environment.
Any spills or cross contamination on your device can be wiped or washed off and disinfected just as you would any other piece of equipment and the functionality and features of the tablet or phone are completely undiminished. The LifeProof cases also have available accessories like hand straps and shoulder straps as well as stands and mounts for use in the hospital or ambulance environments.
Features Similar Cases Lack
Many similar cases that advertise being waterproof are very bulky but the slim design of the LifeProof case and the way it seals directly to the glass face of the device makes it similar in weight and profile to most standard cases. It’s more of a conversion for your mobile device than a case. The rubber bumpers and gaskets are completely bonded to the case body leaving no gaps in which pathogens can hide.
The LifeProof cases are currently available for iPhone 5, iPhone 4/4s, 3rd or 4th generation iPad, and the 4th generation iPod Touch. There will be a Samsung Galaxy S III case coming soon.
Find LifeProof cases at Amazon.com or other popular retailers. Prices begin at $79.95.
