Jericho, NY (PRWEB) March 21, 2006
SoundBytes, a catalog, web and retail-based company that specializes in providing assistive equipment for Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals and the agencies that serve them, today announced that it has developed a program specifically designed for audiologists and other hearing health professionals who wish to present a comprehensive line of assisting devices to their clients. The announcement comes two weeks prior to the Audiology Now! Convention, the annual event presented by the American Academy of Audiology. This year’s convention takes place at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minnesota from April 6-8th.
H.E.A.R., the first program of its kind in the assisting technology industry, will incorporate a unique referral plan in addition to offering discount pricing on all of SoundBytes’ products for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. The program was built to accommodate all sizes of practices. For those professionals looking to directly provide products to their patients, they can purchase bulk products at discount pricing. Other practices that do not want to carry any products can refer the business to SoundBytes and receive compensation. The features of both aspects of the program are always available to the hearing health professional.
"Working hand in hand with audiologists over the years has given us great insight to their needs and we believe that this program is the most comprehensive around," said Michael Abramowitz, Managing Director of SoundBytes. “Hearing aids may not be the only solution for many hard of hearing individuals and the many products we offer can make a tremendous difference in one’s quality of life.”

The equipment includes amplified telephones, TTYs, FM systems, household notification systems, hearing aid batteries, hearing aid maintenance equipment, books, software, and other assistive living and communication products. Manufacturers including Clarity, Ameriphone, Sonic Alert, Krown, ClearSounds, Silent Call, Williams Sound, Ultratec, Conversor, and many others.
