Cochlear Limited, the global leader in implantable hearing solutions, announces the upcoming release of the Nucleus® Smart App for Android™ in the United States and Canada, offering greater connectivity than ever before for people with hearing loss and a cochlear implant. Cochlear implant recipients with the Nucleus® 7 Sound Processor can now control their hearing with the Nucleus Smart App from a compatible Android device, allowing them to monitor and adjust their settings, view personalized hearing information and even locate a missing sound processor, all from the convenience of their smartphone.
Since the Nucleus 7 Sound Processor was first launched in 2017 as the world’s first Made for iPhone cochlear implant sound processor, Cochlear has been working to extend the benefits of its industry-leading technology to Android smartphone users.
“Embracing digital technologies that enhance the experience and hearing performance for our customers is a key focus of our product innovation,” said Tony Manna, President, Cochlear Americas. “With the launch of the Nucleus 7 Sound Processor last year, we were the first in our industry to introduce a Made for iPhone cochlear implant sound processor, still the only one to offer direct streaming to a compatible Apple device. Now we are pleased to offer Android users the ability to use the Nucleus Smart App to track their hearing and access new features. We are committed to giving people who are living with disabling hearing loss greater choices when it comes to controlling their hearing experience.”
Along with the release of the Nucleus Smart App for Android, Cochlear has also added a first-of-its-kind control feature called ForwardFocus available to compatible smartphone users of the app. The user-activated control feature allows the wearer to hear better in a challenging listening environment such as a noisy restaurant. When switched on, the ForwardFocus feature reduces distracting noise coming from behind a person so they can more easily enjoy a face-to-face conversation.
The Nucleus Smart App, which is exclusively compatible with the Nucleus 7 Sound Processor, offers a range of first-of-its-kind features for users. From locating a lost or misplaced sound processor using the Find My Processor feature, to confidently tracking progress with the Hearing Tracker feature, or reducing noise from behind with the ForwardFocus feature, users can experience unprecedented connectivity and performance in managing their hearing.
