A local company says it has created the smallest wireless receiver-in-the-canal hearing aid available on the market.
Unitron, which is headquartered on Beasley Drive in south Kitchener, unveiled the device known as the Moxi Now on Wednesday.
The device measures 20.2 mm by 6.5 mm. According to Unitron, it is 39 per cent smaller than any other hearing aid of that type they’ve developed.
“We remain committed to creating the best and most complete experience possible while making the technology transparent to the wearer,” Unitron design manager Corey Banham said in a press release.
