Stockport based Starkey® Hearing Technologies has reinvented both the hearing experience and the hearing aid with Livio AI. Livio AI is the world’s first Healthable™ hearing aid to utilise integrated sensors and artificial intelligence, and the first to track physical activity and cognitive health.
Until now, there has never been a device that tracks physical activity and cognitive health as measured by hearing aid use in social situations. Most fitness tracking devices use the wrist, but the ear provides far more accurate data – in fact, it’s the ideal spot for reliable tracking, and Livio AI is the first-ever device to take advantage of that.
“First and foremost, Livio AI is the best performing and best sounding hearing aid we have ever made. We have transformed a single-use device into the world’s first multi-purpose hearing aid, a Healthable with artificial intelligence. Livio AI is so much more than just a hearing aid, it is a gateway to better health and wellness,” Neil Pottinger, Sales and Marketing Director at Starkey Hearing Technologies said.
Hearing health is directly connected to overall health and well-being Hearing loss has been linked to several chronic disabling conditions like cognitive decline, diabetes, heart disease, dementia and more (4). Dementia, in particular, presents an immense challenge as populations age.
The good news is that growing research shows treating hearing loss can improve or limit the risk of some of these serious conditions, including dementia (5). In fact, a 2017 study revealed that treating hearing loss is the single greatest change a person can make to lower their risk of dementia.(1)
Livio AI is also the first hearing aid to feature Amazon® Alexa connectivity, fall detection and the first to translate up to 27 languages directly into the hearing aid.
Livio AI lets people of all ages take a proactive approach to their overall wellness. You will not only hear better, but live better thanks to real-time feedback about your overall body and cognitive fitness.
