Ponto 5

Open up your child’s world

When your child has a hearing loss, early access to clear, high-quality sound can give them better conditions to learn and grow – and to engage with life’s great opportunities.

Every new sound is a gift

Children learn and grow by absorbing everyday input from the world around them – including sounds. If your child has conductive hearing loss, a bone conduction solution that provides access to more sounds can help ensure they don't miss out. Find out if Ponto 5 could be the right solution for your child’s hearing loss.
