Two Pi GmbH announces a successfully completed prototyping of SELFFIT App for interactive adjustment of hearing and personal amplification devices and the start of a clinical trial phase. The SELFFIT prototypes have been developed in cooperation with the Academic Medical Centre (Academisch Medisch Centrum AMC) in Amsterdam and integrate a hearing aid with an iOS-based app for hearing device adjustment.
SELFFIT is a 3-step procedure for user-driven adjustment of hearing devices that combines screening of mild to moderate hearing loss, first-fit, and interactive fine-tuning. The different components have already been tested in clinical pilot studies. The initial “first fit” is calculated based on a scientifically proven method of hearing loss diagnostics that does not require previous knowledge of audiogram. The subsequent fine tuning is done by completely novel interactive method that allows the user to convert his individual hearing preference into a personalized device setting.
