Today, we’re sharing an inside look at Oticon Medical at work. This is one of our sound studios in the Oticon Medical headquarters in Kongebakken, Denmark. It’s a silent room that can create any acoustical environment to test products with real patients.
This is just one of the many tests Pontos go through before they make their way to you.

Today, Oticon Medical Audiologist Laura Carr hosted the Audiology Online Webinar “Overcoming Distance and Noise: Strategies for Successfully Utilizing FM with the Ponto System.” Laura discussed FM compatibility with the Ponto Pro and Ponto Plus sound processor families—including how the Oticon Medical Streamer enables FM for Ponto Plus processors. She also talked about connecting to other devices. Her presentation answered many foundational questions around FM systems.
Here’s a recap of the information in Laura’s presentation and other resources for FM information and how-tos. If you would like to watch the full recording of Laura’s presentation, you can find it here.
First, why is FM important?
Many who deal with hearing loss work to overcome three key obstacles: noise, distance and reverberation. Here’s how FM helps with each:
Oticon Medical is pleased to announce the launch of the first soft healing cap on the market.
The healing cap is intended to be attached to the Ponto abutment during the soft tissue healing period after a bone anchored implant surgery to hold the dressing in place and act as protective mechanical barrier.
The new soft healing cap is made of a specially selected thermoplastic elastomer material, designed to provide a dampening effect and stay in place if subject to impact. This flexibility allows the healing cap to absorb side forces when exposed to impact, rather than transferring that impact to the abutment, which can happen with a hard healing cap.
