What Is the Livio Edge AI?
The Livio Edge AI is a “healthable” hearing aid that features artificial intelligence and integrated sensors that work together to improve sound quality while also tracking body and brain health. These hearing aids are custom molded for comfort, discreet, and rechargeable, which is especially useful for patients with dexterity issues like arthritis and vision problems like macular degeneration that would make it difficult to change batteries frequently.
Who Might Need It?
Hearing loss is the third most prevalent physical condition facing older adults today. By age 65, 1 in 3 Americans suffers from hearing loss, and by age 75, 1 in 2 Americans is affected. Generally, hearing loss develops gradually and can even go unnoticed at first. But the effects of hearing loss can be devastating – communication issues and difficulty conversing can lead to isolation and even depression.
How the Livio Edge AI Works
Similar to its predecessor the Livio AI, the Livio Edge AI is designed to help users enjoy the highest quality of life possible. It pairs with two separate apps – Thrive and Thrive Care – to measure and monitor everything from your daily steps to your social interaction. The Thrive app is for personalized control, allowing you to adjust settings easily or set in-ear and on-screen reminders. Thrive Care provides peace of mind to loved ones so that users can remain independent. With it, you can share information about hearing aid usage, social engagement, physical activity levels, and falls.
The Livio Edge AI can connect straight to your phone or television to allow wireless listening, and with one tap, the artificial intelligence scans the wearer’s environment and makes automatic adjustments for easier listening.
Since Livio Edge AI devices are also rechargeable, they detect when you put them in or take them out to save battery life.
Benefits of the Livio Edge AI
In today’s world, the interconnectedness of devices is not only impressive, it’s necessary. Fortunately, hearing aid technology is on the cutting edge. The Livio Edge AI can help keep you physically and mentally active, and it is designed for easy use. If a loss of hearing has impacted your lifestyle, get evaluated.
