    Oticon Launches New Safety Line for Ponto Sound Processor.


    Oticon Medical announced the introduction of the newSafety Line for the Ponto Sound Processor, which is said to improve retention and reduce loss during physical activities. The Safety Line consists of a clip connected to an elastic line with a loop that attaches to both the Ponto Sound Processor and clothing. The user-friendly clip features a firm “barbed” grip and no sharp edges.

    “Our aim is to provide a positive hands-on experience for Ponto Sound Processor users,” says Alan Raffauf, vice president of marketing for Oticon Medical. “The new Safety Line combines the sleek, discreet, and transparent look our users want with a robust design that has been tested for safety and reliability.”

    Pre-assembly by Oticon Medical prepares the Safety Line for insertion into the Ponto Sound Processor. To minimize the risk of the sound processor being disconnected from the abutment, the line that attaches to clothing and the sound processor is elastic. Loops are connected by a nylon tube to each end of the elastic line and pointed ends are designed to enable easy threading. If pulled, the Safety Line is designed to break before damaging the sound processor. According to Oticon, it has been tested for resistance to a variety of substances and conditions including sunscreen lotions, isopropanol alcohol, humidity, and UV light.

    The new Safety Line will be included as part of the accessories for the Ponto Sound Processor and is also available for separate purchase.

    Because sound matters…The Oticon promise.
    The magical world of sound, (according to Oticon).

    Sound is a fundamental part of daily life that opens up a world of wonder. Sound and hearing are the key to human development and interaction. Sound is the way we understand, recognise and socialise with other people. In short, to hear is to live better. Imagine a world without sound, without being able to hear, without being able to interact.

    At Oticon Medical, we are passionate about using our combined expertise and resources to open up the world of sound to as many people as possible.

    We do so because we appreciate that when it comes to quality of life, sound and sound quality matter.

    The Oticon commitment:
    To deliver on this promise and to realise our ambition, we have defined five focus areas where our passion and commitment come together. With this focus, we will ensure that no one with a hearing problem receives a less than optimal solution. Because we understand just how much sound matters.
