Starkey have brought out a revolutionary hearing aid which is the first hearing aid that incorporates artificial intelligence and motion sensors to become a multi functional smart device. This very hearing aid has been named one of TIME magazines 100 best inventions.
This hearing device named the Livio AI hearing aid can track brain and body health. Which is why this hearing aid is the perfect device to try as we promote brain awareness week this March. Hearing loss and cognitive function is something that is constantly being investigated and researched. Not only is the hearing device a superior hearing aid which is able to offer a quality sound and perform in the most challenging of situations but it also tracks how active the wearer is. When we talk about being active this not only refers to how physically active the wearer is but also how mentally active they are by measuring much time has been spent in social engagement and listening actively.
Most of the population now have some form of tracking device worn on their wrist or incorporated into their phones, now it’s part of your hearing aids. By including 3D motion sensors into their hearing aids such as an accelerometer and gyroscope these hearing aids are able to detect movement, gestures, track steps, monitor heart rate and even detect and alert other people if the wearer has a fall and is proven to be much more accurate due to where these sensors are positioned and worn on the body.
It does not end here, the Livio AI hearing aid can translate languages in real time directly into your ear when wearing them and they can be linked to Amazon Alexa to answer all your questions with just a tap on your ear to activate this function.
The hearing devices can also be linked to your iPhone or tv so that you can wirelessly receive your, tv, phone calls and / or music directly into your ears via your hearing aids.
All of this data can be viewed on an easy to use app on your iPhone as well as allowing you to have control over the hearing aid settings yourself.
