(HALES CORNER, Wis.)—Hearing aid users will gain better access to and control over their receivers thanks to new devices called Gruv Buttons™, which were unveiled at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Wisconsin Alliance of Hearing Professionals, held Jan. 8-9 in Lake Delton, Wis.
Gruv Buttons™, a product line of Each Ear, LLC, are ergonomically designed to help Receiver-in-the-Canal (RIC) hearing aid users to use their fingertips to insert their receivers, thus solving three challenges:
1) Difficulty manipulating and controlling the small receivers,
2) Inserting receivers sufficiently deep in bending auditory canals, and
3) Overcoming users’ physical limitations and disabilities.
“Gruv Buttons™ significantly improve RIC hearing aid manageability and effectiveness,” Each Ear Founder and President Jeffrey Szmanda said. “Now users can truly benefit from the prescribed amplification.”
Gruv Buttons™ will be distributed to hearing care professionals in three models: The SoloGruv™, The TrueGruv™ and The WheelGruv™.
Also at the conference, Each Ear unveiled its “Practitioner Request,” a plea for hearing aid manufacturers to review and consider implementing the patent-pending Gruv Buttons™ for their RICs.
“We are very interested in helping people with physical disabilities and limitations use hearing aids with greater ease,” Mike Matus, vice president, sales & strategic solutions for Goodwill Industries of Southeastern Wisconsin and Metropolitan Chicago, said. “We look forward to assisting Each Ear with the assembly and distribution of its Gruv Buttons.”
