Bundesliga youth team player and ambassador for Sonova’s brand Phonak Simon Ollert is paying a visit to the Hear the World Foundation’s partner project in Santo Domingo. Their common goal for the event is to help children with hearing loss make progress in their personal development and have the self-confidence to follow their ambitions.
Sonova has proudly inaugurated a new building at its operation center near Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, thereby expanding its production capacity and setting the stage for future growth. Thai Phuong Nguyen, Sonova’s Managing Director Vietnam, speaks about this next important step for the group in the Asia Pacific region.
With support from Sonova, a globally unique study by the University of Zurich has managed to measure and visually map the consequences of age-related hearing loss in the brain. The results? In the event of hearing loss, the brain requires intensive training to regain a better understanding of speech using hearing instruments.
A lot of people with hearing loss leave it too long before getting a hearing aid. Swiss rock legend Toni Vescoli, who has had poor hearing all his life, has opted for hearing instruments manufactured under Sonova’s Phonak brand, and the difference for the 74-year-old is like night and day.
