Amplifon SpA engages in the distribution and customization of fitting of hearing aids for the solution of problems related to the loss of hearing and the supply of related services. Amplifit engages in the diagnosis of hearing problems and in the application of hearing-aids with the collaboration of university centers in Europe and the Unites States. The company operates through a network of retail outlets and network affiliates, which include 2.200 outlets, 3.000 authorized distribution centers and approximately 2.100 licensed network affiliates. The company operates in Italy, U.S.A., Canada, France, Holland, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, and Egypt. Hearing-aids The company’s hearing-aid products re-establish a hearing sensitivity as close as possible to normal, enabling the hypoacusis person to hear and understand speech and conversations. The company has four big families of hearing-aids, based on position: behind the ear, in the ear, glasses, and case. From a technological standpoint, the main differences consist in the circuits used to process the signal. Sound is amplified through three types of electronic circuits: analogue, programmable, and digital. Hearing accessories Amplifon offers a line of accessories for communicating, hearing and better everyday living, at home or at work. These products are suitable for persons with hearing problems, but also for those with good hearing but with specific needs. Cochlear Implant Systems The Cochlear Implant is a device designed to electrically stimulate the cochlea, able to replace the function of the cochlear hair cells and convert the sound into electrical pulses, which directly stimulate the acoustic nerve in order to produce hearing at the level of the cortical areas in patients with total or profound deafness. The cochlear implants are designed and developed to help children and adults suffering from sensorineural hearing loss or ‘missing’ acoustic nerve. Implantable hearing-aids Implantable hearing-aids represent a new development in medical electronics technology. Implantable Hearing-Aids allow persons in good health, and with neurosensory hearing loss, to improve their hearing capacity. Its implantable hearing-aids convert the sound into vibrations inside the middle ear. These vibrations are amplified by the electronics of the device to make them louder than those the patient would normally receive with sound waves transmitted through the auditory canal and the eardrum.
