Roger for Education portfolio

Phonak, the global provider of the most complete product portfolio of hearing instruments and wireless communication solutions, sets new standards in hearing performance, ease of use and design with a new portfolio of four Roger for Education products for more effective classroom learning and participation.

The new portfolio, based on Phonak Roger technology, is proven to give children the best speech understanding in the classroom1, which represents one of the greatest challenges for children with hearing loss.

Students are able to better hear their teachers and also understand their classmates in the classroom thanks to an automatic function for small groups on Roger’s Touchscreen Mic, shown to be preferred by 100% of children listening to their peers.2

The award-winning Roger Touchscreen Mic

Phonak is not stopping there: The Roger classroom package, based on the Venture platform, also  sets new standards for easy handling, flexibility  and compatibility. Roger’s Pass-around microphone, Multimedia Hub,  Charging Rack and the Touchscreen Mic are extremely convenient for students or teachers to use. And Roger is compatible with virtually all hearing instrument brands, cochlear implants and bone-anchored hearing devices.

“The innovative new Roger for Education portfolio fosters a dynamic learning environment where students and teachers are able to fully engage with each other through easily-operated solutions that are practical to use,” said Martin Grieder, Group Vice President of Phonak. “We are convinced the powerfully, easily-operated and aesthetically pleasing Roger classroom solutions will appeal to children and education professionals alike.”

The Roger Touchscreen Mic was recognized for high design quality by Red Dot, one of the world’s largest and most distinguished design competitions, highlighting the increasing importance of product look and feel for Phonak users.
