Interview With a SoundBite Recipient at Speak Up Librarian

Over at Speak Up Librarian, you can check out an interview with a recipient of the SoundBite, a product designed by Sonitus Medical. The SoundBite uses bone conduction to transmit sound via the patient's teeth - it's an in-the-mouth hearing device custom-fit for each recipient.

I thought this interview was very interesting. Reading about others' real-life experiences can really help. Especially interesting is the story of how Donna was able to convince her insurance company to cover the device.

  1. Thank you, Megan for helping to spread the word. I am really impressed at Donna's achievement. She advocated all on her own and persisted until she got the insurance to pay. She is really hopeful that what she did will allow others who could benefit from the device to have a much easier time getting it.

  2. Thanks for a great read. Really amazing so many new things that I even didn't hear about them. Difficult to follow for a private individual. The world goes on progressing by innovating and inventing.
