Otometrics leads the way with integrated verification

Third major hearing instrument manufacturer can now integrate with Otometrics fitting solution Aurical® to advance integrated verification in hearing instruments for greater efficiency, time-savings and a better fitting experience.

Taastrup, DK | January 9, 2018 – Otometrics A/S, the leading global manufacturer of audiology instrumentation and software solutions announced today the results of a new integration with hearing instrument manufacturer Oticon. The two companies have been working to implement integrated verification capabilities based on the new Inter Module Communication 2 (IMC2) standard. This enables integrated and automatic verification between Oticon hearing instruments and Otometrics Aurical, the complete modular hearing instrument fitting and verification tool.

“We are excited about this new compatibility with Oticon,” says Peter Kossek, Senior Product Manager at Otometrics. “We look forward to helping hearing care professionals providing Oticon hearing instruments by streamlining their fitting workflow so they can satisfy more clients with improved efficiency, a better fitting experience and properly fitted hearing instruments.”

Inter Module Communication 2 – the new standard for integration

Otometrics fitting solutions are fully enabled for Inter Module Communication 2 (IMC2), which is the new standard for integration between hearing instrument fitting and real-ear modules since December 2015. IMC2 is software that allows fitting and measurement modules to “talk” to each other directly. This means
the verification process is guided and automated providing hearing care professionals with a simplified and more efficient workflow.

REM AutoFit in Oticon Genie and Genie 2 streamlines verification workflow

Oticon is the third major hearing instrument manufacturer to date to include Otometrics Aurical in their hearing instrument fitting software. The tight integration between Aurical and hearing instrument fitting software, including ReSound Aventa using AutoRem, Phonak Target using TargetMatch and now adding REM AutoFit in Oticon Genie and Genie 2, makes it possible to verify hearing instrument fittings to a prescriptive target automatically with minimal user intervention and training.
