Ponto can help children too

Early identification of hearing loss and early access to sound are vital for children’s language development. The age at which children can receive a bone anchored implant varies from person to person. But with the Ponto Softband, children with conductive/mixed hearing loss or single-sided deafness can benefit from Ponto sound processors – regardless of age. Recognising that their needs, preferences and lifestyles differ from those of adult users, Ponto offers a number of dedicated solutions for children, parents and caregivers.


What makes Ponto so child-friendly?

Since children have different needs to adults, Ponto offers dedicated solutions to match their specific needs. Our range of solutions is designed to help children lead happy, active lives.

 

The Ponto Softband

For children with hearing loss, early stimulation of the cochlea is essential for development of language skills. The Ponto Softband supports early stimulation by enabling even the youngest child to wear a sound processor. This easily adjustable and flexible soft band also provides an opportunity to evaluate the benefits of the sound processor prior to having implant surgery.

Adapting to children’s needs

Ponto offers dedicated solutions for children, parents and caregivers. For example, the program push-button and volume control can be fully deactivated, and special programs can be added to meet the child’s ever-evolving needs. Also, Ponto has a tamper-proof battery door that prevents children from accessing the battery. And to stop the sound processor getting lost or damaged if it falls off, the Ponto comes with a safety line.

Extra support in school

Ponto sound processors can be used with FM systems, which support communication in the classroom so that the teacher’s voice can be transmitted directly to the sound processor. Contact us for more information.

Personalise your Ponto with skins and stickers

Ponto skins and stickers give you the opportunity to personalise your sound processor. They are easy to remove and replace to match them to your mood favourite jumper.
