World's leading hearing solutions provider to participate in the upcoming AccessAbilities Expo
By: Starkey Hearing Technologies
AccessAbilities Expo is the region's dedicated event, that aims to bring the world's latest assistive technology products with the goal of enhancing lives of more than 50 million people with disabilities. Livio AI which will be showcased at this Expo is the world's first Healthable™ device that utilizes the power of 'artificial Intelligence' and 'integrated sensors'.
"It's an honour to be a part of an event of this stature that is aimed at enabling the people with various levels of disabilities. Such platforms help us to realise our own vision and make lives richer by empowering such individuals to reach their full potential in life. We would be utilising this exhibition to highlight the value we can bring to the people affected by hearing challenges. An estimated number of 16 million people suffer from various degrees of hearing loss in the Middle East region. Currently, this number is on the rise due to several lifestyle choices made by people, especially the youngsters,"
As per the World Health Organisation, around 466 million people worldwide have disabling hearing loss, and 34 million of these are children. It is estimated that by 2050 over 900 million people will have disabling hearing loss. Hearing health is essential to overall health and wellness.
At the Expo, Starkey would be elaborating various ways by which people with disabilities can use this device. Livio AI can also analyse their physical activity and cognitive health by measuring hearing aid use in social situations. This device uses the power of artificial intelligence to track brain and body functions making it the world's first multi-purpose hearing aid. It also features the first-ever fall detection and alert capabilities and translates 27 languages instantly including Arabic.
