For Scott Moulton, wow's the word when he describes his feelings about overcoming hearing loss on the Advanced Bionics website.
“Some of my wow moments include being able to use the headset on self-guided tours, hearing a cat purr, hearing my two-month-old baby girl giggle, almost stepping on a rattle snake, but hearing the rattle warning in time,” said Moulton, who was implanted at age 31, bilaterally implanted at age 33. “And the realization I am losing my ability to lip read because I don't need to read lips to understand anymore.”
For Sandra Fulton, Managing Director of Connect Hearing (Canada), getting the best technology available to people like Scott Moulton is critical. That's why she's thrilled that Connect Hearing will be the new Canadian Distributor for the full line of Advanced Bionics’ sound processors and accessories.
“I am very excited to formalize the partnership in Canada between two Sonova Family companies and industry leaders in Connect Hearing Canada and Advanced Bionics. Connect Hearing has built a reputation as Canada’s leading provider in the retail hearing healthcare field, and this partnership leverages that experience to offer exceptional support and service to Advanced Bionics patients,” said Sandra Fulton, Managing Director of Connect Hearing (Canada), adding that Advanced Bionics is being distributed from Toronto across Canada from the North York Sheppard Connect Hearing office.
