Starkey Laboratories Becomes First Hearing Aid Manufacturer to Offer LACE Aural Rehabilitation Training Software

Starkey Laboratories, Inc., one of the worlds leading hearing technology companies, today announced a partnership with NeuroTone Inc., a leading provider of auditory training solutions, to become the first hearing aid manufacturer in the world to offer hearing aid users NeuroTones LACE (Listening and Communication Enhancement) interactive aural training software.

Hearing aids help users better detect sounds and achieve improved hearing. LACE helps hearing aid users achieve better overall communication. Through interactive tasks, LACE helps hearing aid users develop better listening skills, rapid thought processing, auditory memory, and language skills.

We believe that LACE perfectly complements Starkeys new Destiny series of hearing aids, said Jerry Ruzicka, president of Starkey. Destiny ensures users achieve significant improvements to their hearing, and LACE ensures they achieve significant improvements to their listening and speech recognition skills. With LACE, the end result will be users who are more satisfied with their hearing aids and who are more confident in their ability to return to their vibrant and active daily lives.

LACE is a 20-day training program that requires just 30 minutes of training time per day. Users simply install the software on their home computer to get started. The interactive and adaptive tasks are divided into three categories: Degraded Speech, which helps develop skills to hear better in noise and listen to fast talkers; Cognitive Skills, which provides short and long term memory training and improves the speed at which sounds are processed; and Communication Strategies, which develops skills to perform better in daily communication activities.
