Managing Through Quarantine with Ponto

Annika enjoys hearing her TV shows… and Mom doesn’t have to!

Like so many other families in the United States, Shannon Sappington and her daughter, Annika, are dealing with the challenges posed by quarantine as best they can. Although many people with hearing loss like Annika face additional struggles, her Ponto bone anchored hearing device is actually helping both mother and daughter through this difficult time. They were kind enough to shoot this homemade video demonstrating how Annika’s Ponto and streaming accessories are making it easier to stay inside and in close quarters.

“I am proud of how willingly Annika let me record her connecting to her streamer and the TV!” said Shannon. “That is a godsend Oticon Medical invention…. letting her watch her favorite shows and saving my sanity by not have to keep listening to the same shows again and again!”

Be More Bold

Connie Kehoe, a seasoned Oticon Medical Ponto Pro user, explains how taking the steps to improve her hearing was a chance for bold new adventures.

After experiencing 20 years of hearing loss, Connie was ready to overcome to exhaustion of working to hear people in groups and in noise filled environments– including her own grandchildren.

Contribute: The Oticon Medical Manifesto

This weekend we posed a very important question: “What do you want the Oticon Medical manifesto to say?” The answers we got evoked goosebumps. Before we formalize those incredible answers and turn them into the manifesto, we want to give you an opportunity to participate too.

Here’s more information on what we’re creating.

A manifesto is the beginning of a narrative. And, narratives have great power to engage, deepen understanding and motivate action. Narratives can help to draw connections across stories and link them to a much broader series of events. Narratives also make it clear to readers what they can and need to do in order to achieve a desired world.

This narrative, the Oticon Medical manifesto, is not about Oticon Medical, it’s about you.

Narratives are by definition a long-term, sustaining call to action. They far outlive any individual product or service offering.

We want to you to contribute! Share your statements in the comments section below or on on Facebook or Twitter. Soon you’ll see a complete version of our first ever #OMmanifesto.
