From Copenhagen to Southwest Georgia: Albany ENT's Dr. Monica Mennite Brings Home Latest Research and Hearing Solutions to Benefit People with Hearing Loss

Albany, FL, July 03, 2011 --( Monica Mennite, doctor of audiology at The Hearing Center at Albany ENT, recently joined hearing care professionals from across the U.S. at an international conference on the latest developments in hearing care. Dr. Mennite traveled to Copenhagen, Denmark to meet with leading audiologists, researchers and engineers responsible for many of the newest and most successful breakthroughs in hearing care. The week-long professional gathering included seminars held at the world headquarters of leading hearing instrument manufacturer, Oticon and at Oticon’s world-renown Eriksholm Research Center.

“It was such an exciting experience to travel half-way around the world and share with other practitioners in the latest advances in hearing technology,” said Dr. Mennite. “The hearing solutions teams at Oticon provided invaluable information that I can’t wait to share with our patients at The Hearing Center at Albany ENT.”

Among the topics explored was the latest research and trends data on the new generation of people with hearing loss and their desire to maintain active and engaged lifestyles. Conference participants were introduced to Agil, one of the newest hearing solutions from Oticon. The discreet, modern hearing device is specifically designed to enable people with hearing loss to minimize the cognitive energy expended in typical listening environments without compromising sound quality and speech understanding. When speech understanding becomes more immediate, more cognitive energy is readily available to engage in day-to-day interactions. As a result, Agil users should have more residual energy for other important tasks such as full social interaction.

Dr. Mennite experienced first-hand the ways in which Agil’s advanced technology could enable users to easily “stay connected” through today’s high-tech communication and entertainment devices. With just the push of a button on a sleek companion device, Agil connects wirelessly to mobile phones, TVs, MP3 music players and a variety of other communication and entertainment devices.
