Real Word Programming: Hearing aids can be fined tuned and personalised in your communication environment such as at work or home.
Real Time Programming: You hearing aids can be adjusted immediately based on your feedback. Simply walk around your home or office after an adjustment and let your Audiologist know whether it made an improvement or not.
