Bonita Springs, FL (Vocus) October 19, 2010
PHSI, Physician Hearing Services, Inc., the unquestioned leader in Vision-Hearing programs, announces a breakthrough in the industry with the introduction of the patented 'Clarujust' hearing instrument fitting system. This innovative technology which is based on the mathematical decomposition of speech phonemes, is now offered by PHSI and will be available October of 2010 at The AAO Symposium in Chicago.
With the direct correlation between loss of vision and hearing at a certain point in life, PHSI has brought “Vision & Hearing Together” with its client base of over 100 ophthalmology practices which now offer state-of-the-art hearing services to their patients. This work supported by the NCOA (National Council for the Aging) advances the time taken for a hearing impaired patient to receive help by many years, thus avoiding the mental deterioration which would otherwise happen as sensorineural loss inevitably progresses.
PHSI is now able to offer this patented hearing fitting system to all of the medical doctors affiliated with our progressively expanding organization. Reg Garratt, CEO of PHSI and prior CEO of Knowles Electronic Inc., the world’s largest hearing instrument component manufacturer, comments, “This new breakthrough technology of 'Clarujust' speech based fitting system, rather than the old tone based system, was clinically tested by University of Florida and produces a much higher understanding of speech in noise, thus greater customer satisfaction.” Drawing from 35 years of experience in the hearing industry, Garratt says, “It is an indescribable pleasure to see patients’ eyes light up when they experience the clarity of speech in noise they have not heard in years. Furthermore the fitting process is much simpler and totally removes the arbitrary adjustments made by even the most competent audiologist.”
