“Our dynamic hearing health platform solutions give Soundwave Hearing needed infrastructure to support and empower their patients through access to the Amptify DTx and our network of providers across the United States,” said Chris Cardinal, President and COO of Amptify. “With this partnership, we’re excited to showcase the power of the Amptify hearing health platform which we’ve built to improve the provider and patient experience through tech-enhanced care.”
Removing barriers to hearing loss treatment
Amptify’s hearing health platform allows us to differentiate our Sontro Hearing Aids in the market and to provide incredible value as compared to the customary offerings which focus on support of the device and not the person,” said Anthony Florek, President of Soundwave Hearing. “Hearing loss doesn’t stop at the ears, and it's a priority of ours to ensure that each and every customer receives access to comprehensive, best-practice care which includes audiologic rehabilitation beyond the device.”
Integrating the Sontro OTC Hearing Aids and Amptify into clinical practice
The Sontro Hearing Aid was designed to partner with the audiology community specifically for Tested-not-Treated (TNT) patients. The Sontro Hearing Aid can be positioned as a starter hearing aid, part of a provider’s cabinet solution to keep TNT patients in the practice ecosystem and their purview of care. The Sontro Hearing Aid combined with the Amptify DTx is an ideal solution for younger, first time hearing aid users and patients with mild to moderate hearing loss.
