Here, we’re collecting a living list of outstanding advocacy moments when the love for Ponto was taken to a whole new level!
Kristi Gardner’s “Sound Matters” Tattoo
Kristi Gardner shows the world that sound matters with her brand new Ponto-inspired tattoo. “Sound Matters” is Oticon Medical’s tagline, and it’s truly why we do what we do every day.
“As I was waiting for my turn I HEARD an ice cream truck through the walls over the tattoo gun, so last minute change of plans. This is what it inspired. Thanks all to my Pontos!”
Kristi isn’t the only one in her family who loves her Pontos, her daughter Sarah also wears a Ponto Plus.
