Users can also find the help and support tool, hearing aid details as well as battery level status.
Find my hearing aids tool: The “Find My Hearing Aids” feature is a helpful tool which narrows down the location of your hearing aids at any given moment, or where they were the last time they were turned on and connected to the app.
Remote counselling with RemoteCare: Allows users flexibility and convenience. Users can get the help that they require from the comfort of their home without the need in some cases, of returning to the clinic for an adjustment. This can save both the user and Hearing Care Professional time while boosting user satisfaction.
