Somerset, NJ March 19 – Any well-planned adventure starts with the right equipment. For children and teens ready to take full advantage of new Oticon Safari state-of-the-art advanced technology hearing aids, there are now a series of child-friendly new-age Care Kits to equip them for smooth going as they encounter the everyday adventures of childhood with their new hearing instruments. The age-appropriate Care Kits are color-coded by age and contain a range of practical and fun accessories to meet the needs of youngsters, and their parents, from infancy through the high school years.
“We wanted the new Care Kits to reflect the Safari’s ‘living eveyday adventure’ theme,” says Maureen Doty Tomasula, AuD, Marketing Manager for Oticon Pediatrics. “That meant some very practical and desirable additions – like the crushproof, waterproof Otterbox – as well as fun stickers, an LED key ring and the new Plugged In comic book.” The eco-friendly Care Kits will have special appeal to environmentally minded young people and their parents – they are made from 100% recycled materials (80% recycled cotton and 20% recycled soda bottles).
Care Kits are available for three age groups: infancy to 4 years (apple green), school age children, 5 – 10 years (royal blue) and middle/high schoolers, 11 – 18 years (expresso). In addition to the durable, protective Otterbox and fun accessories, each kit also contains age-approriate brochures, Safari-themed Ear Gear, listening tubes and an OtiCare Clean and Dry Kit.
The new Care Kits are an added value with every Safari order and a perfect complement to the industry’s first comprehensive family of hearing instruments exclusively for children with hearing loss from infancy through the teen years. The Safari family offers extended bandwidth to support language development, wireless binaural processing to improve spatial awareness and localization capabilities, and wireless connectivity for easy access to phones, TVs and other communicaiton and entertainment devices. In addition, Safari features a unique built-in intelligent LED indicator that lets parents, teachers and other caregivers know with certainty that the hearing instrument is functioning properly.
