ORLANDO, Fla. - July 11, 2018 - PRLog -- iHEAR® Medical announces its iHEARTEST™ Kit – a clinical paradigm shift in effective and financially accessible hearing screening technology – is now available over-the-counter at independently owned pharmacies and drugstore chains nationwide.

The first FDA-cleared home-hearing assessment kit, the iHEARTest™ Kit will be introduced at the Good Neighbor Pharmacies ABC/ThoughtSpot 2018 Conference in Orlando, FL, July 18-21. Starting now, consumers can purchase the innovative iHEARTEST™ Kit at brick-and-mortar locations and take the 5 - 6 minute assessment to learn what their hearing number is on a scale from 1 to 5 (from profound hearing loss to good hearing in each ear).

Hearing loss is the third most common physical condition behind arthritis and heart disease, affecting people of all ages, reports the Hearing Loss Association of America.  Most often, hearing loss is gradual. Usually, it takes the intervention of a spouse or loved one to convince people with hearing loss to get their hearing evaluated. iHEAR® Medical home-hearing screening kits will give consumers easy and instant access to check their own hearing from the comfort of their home.

iHEAR® Medical will also introduce a new, consumer-driven healthcare product called TReO™ by iHEAR® Medical – a barely visible, 100% digital personal sound amplification product that amplifies sound and clarifies speech while suppressing unwanted noise. Affordable and accessible, consumers can now purchase TReOTM amplifiers, take them home and begin using them in minutes.

"We are excited for the opportunity to launch the iHEARTEST™ Kit and the TReO TM by iHEAR® Medical to healthcare focused retailers, including Good Neighbor Pharmacies, who can expect increased foot traffic with this new product category in consumer-driven home diagnostics," said iHEAR® Medical CEO John Luna. "Offering the FDA-cleared iHEARTEST™ Kit and our advanced hearing amplifier, TReOTM, over-the-counter will break barriers, and improve consumers' quality of life through affordability and innovation." For the first time, consumers can now purchase their own home kit, and find out "What's My Hearing Number™?"
