Oticon Remote Care
Oticon have now included remote programming assistance in their latest hearing aids via their phone app called Oticon Remote Care.
This allows us to connect to you and your hearing aids via live video call within the app and make changes to your hearing aids – this is primarily used in the initial fine-tuning set-up process so that you don’t have to keep driving back and forth for minor tweaks.
Being that hearing aids now include a vast array of technology this can allow us to tweak things a bit more for you to try in different environments and hone the hearing aids better to your needs.
You will need to download the Oticon Remote Care app and set up a user account.
Crystal Hearing can supply Oticon OWN hearing aids via our clinic in Marlow. Surrounding areas include High Wycombe, Maidenhead, Reading, Slough, Henley, Beaconsfield and other areas in Buckinghamshire and Berkshire. We can recommend affiliates outside of these areas – please call 07957 465 084.
