    Stäfa (Switzerland)

    Stäfa (Switzerland), August 21, 2019 – Phonak, the world’s leading hearing aid provider, is extending the proven benefits of Marvel hearing aid technology to children and infants with Sky™ Marvel (M). The innovative Sky M was designed and engineered to provide pediatric wearers the best hearing solution possible for optimal speech and language development as well as speech intelligibility and ease of use. It offers the first operating system designed for children, 24 percent better speech understanding in noise1, maximum access to all speech sounds, and a powerful rechargeable battery that lasts all day . All Sky M devices now have RogerDirect™ integrated, which allows the Roger microphones to stream directly to Marvel hearing aids without having to attach an external receiver and the children to fully participate in conversations even in very noisy environments such as school activities. Thanks to Marvel technology, Sky M is the world’s first pediatric hearing aid to offer universal Bluetooth® connectivity to Android and iOS devices. Given that 78% elementary students report they regularly use a tablet or smartphone and almost 80% of schools report using tablets in the classroom2, Sky M will ensure that children with hearing loss in the classroom have equal access to all these technologies.
