June 12, 2013 - Plymouth, Minnesota — Unitron US has launched new enhancements to the ’locate a professional’ feature on its website, aimed at helping people who suspect they may have hearing loss quickly and easily find the help they need.
The newly enhanced “locate a professional” feature helps a visitor to the Unitron US website find a professional in their local area searching by city, state and/or zip code. Search results provide clinic names and phone numbers, and an integrated Google map offers directions. It is one of several features on Unitron’s website aimed at assisting an individual in their hearing healthcare journey. Unitron also offers people with hearing loss, or those who suspect that they may have a hearing loss, and their families the ability to:
- Take a hearing self-assessment similar to Unitron’s popular uHear™ iTunes® application
- View the different hearing device styles, fit and color
- Learn about the process of having their hearing tested and being fitted with hearing instruments
“From easily finding a professional to make that first appointment, to taking hearing instruments for a risk-free ‘test drive’ with our FLEX:TRIAL™ program, we’re actively seeking new ways to support our hearing healthcare partners,” says Rodney Schutt, President, Unitron US. “Too often, people who suspect they have hearing loss fail to seek treatment because they are not sure of the process or where to go for help. We’re just making it simpler for them to find a hearing professional and take that next step to getting the information they need.”

We work closely with hearing healthcare professionals to improve the lives of people with hearing loss.
