More Patient Benefit, Less Programming Effort
with the Adaptive Phonak Digital Bimodal Fitting Formula
Automatically Align the Frequency Response, Loudness Growth, and AGC of your Patient’s CI and Hearing Aid in the Fewest Step
☑ Select “Adaptive Phonak Digital Bimodal” fitting formula
Conventional bimodal fitting procedures required for fitting other cochlear implants to work with a hearing aid can be time-consuming. You need expertise with both hearing aid and cochlear implant fitting software, and may spend considerable time fitting both devices. The simple selection of the Phonak Adaptive Bimodal Fitting Formula in the Phonak fitting software bypasses the iterative fine tuning required to balance the bimodal listening experience for your patients.
Programming a Naída™ Link with Phonak Target programming software is easy. To take advantage of the optimized frequency response, loudness growth, and dynamic behavior, the fitter only needs to connect a Naida Link to Target. By default APDB is selected and will offer these benefits to bimodal listeners.
Why is a Bimodal Fitting Formula necessary?
Conventional hearing aid prescriptions (e.g., NAL-NL2, DSL v5) do not align acoustic and electric processing, which is required for optimal bimodal hearing. This relates to the frequency response, loudness growth and dynamic behavior of the two devices.
