WASHINGTON, June 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ —
Jacoti bvba’s innovative approach and products continue to attract worldwide attention in the rapidly-growing area of hearing personalization and hearing loss compensation for mobile devices.
Jacoti will present and demonstrate the award-winning Jacoti Hearing Suite at the upcoming joint Hearing Loss Association of America/International Federation of the Hard of Hearing Convention in Washington, DC that runs from June 23 to 26, 2016. An interconnected collection of cloud-enabled iOS applications, Jacoti Hearing Suite provides universal hearing support for individuals with profound hearing losses to those with normal hearing who simply would like to hear better. Jacoti Hearing Suite is the CES 2016 Innovation Award Honoree for Technology for a Better World.
On June 20, Jacoti will participate in a Simons Foundation Workshop in New York City on wireless connectivity for people with hearing loss. The company will demonstrate and discuss the technology behind Jacoti Lola Classroom, Jacoti’s innovative low-latency Wi-Fi-based assistive listening solution for classrooms.
Jacoti believes that hearing accessibility is a right, not an option. Jacoti welcomes the important recommendations in the just-released National Academy of Sciences report on the state of adult hearing health care in the US. This report included calls for more rigorous, long-term research on the progression of hearing loss over an individual’s lifetime; wider and earlier use of personalized hearing technology by people with mild or moderate loss; and easier accessibility to safe and effective hearing assistance, especially to currently underserved communities.
Jacoti bvba is a privately held hearing technology company with offices in Wevelgem, Belgium, Barcelona, Spain and Palo Alto, California. Jacoti’s mission is to bring advanced hearing technology in reach of large populations with a special focus on children during their education.
