Eargo, the health tech company that’s destigmatizing hearing loss through consumer-driven innovation, was awarded Best Technological Innovation - Consumer Devices for its Eargo Max hearing aid, and Best Company for Accelerated Growth at this year’s Medtech Insight Awards. The winners were announced at The Medtech Insight Awards 2018 over a prestigious dinner and ceremony in Monaco, Philadelphia.

The Medtech Insight Awards were established to honor those, who through their passion and dedication, are driven to cure, inform, minimize treatment burden, and make human lives better through medical devices and diagnostics. Categories recognize achievements across the medtech industry, from technological innovations and partnerships, to emerging markets and fast-growing companies, to standout entrepreneurs.

“Hearing aid company Eargo has grown their team by more than 200% across three office locations, brought two products to market and is on track to launch their third-generation product by 2019. This technology could really turnaround a difficult market where patient compliance can be a challenge due to issues with ‘stigma,’" the judges said.

“One of the biggest hurdles of using hearing aids is the social stigma attached to it. Our goal with Eargo Max was to design a hearing aid for the consumer that was both beautifully designed to never be seen, so that we remove those social anxieties,” said Christian Gormsen, CEO of Eargo. “Eargo Max’s discreet design and patented Flexi Fibers allow it to sit comfortably inside the user’s ear canal, hidden from the outside world. This design empowers our customers to once again experience life in full, rich sound, and our team is excited to continue to grow and destigmatize hearing loss.”

Eargo Max was designed in partnership with Ammunition Group, the design masterminds behind Beats by Dre headphones and Square.
