The remote access issue and the solution

  • A patient with a hearing aid that needs to be reprogrammed can attach the equipment to a computer or an Android device using an OTG cable. The USB device can then be shared over the Internet, allowing remote access by technicians or healthcare practitioners.

  • With remote connectivity, an audiologist can use a network-attached computer and access the hearing aid as if they had a physical connection. The software used to reprogram the USB-connected hearing aid works as if it was physically attached to the device with no latency or degraded performance.

Remote Hearing Aid access with FlexiHub

FlexiHub facilitates the remote connectivity necessary to perform this remote reprogramming. The following steps illustrate the process.
Step 1

Hearing aid > FlexiHub > Internet

 step-1-image
A patient connects their hearing aid that needs servicing to a compatible device. The patient installs FlexiHub on their computer and shares the hearing aid over the Internet via a USB connection. Some manufacturers have incorporated FlexiHub into portable hardware devices that eliminate the need to install the program.
Step 2

Service > FlexiHub > Hearing Aid

An audiologist, also running FlexiHub, connects to the hearing aid over the network. Connectivity is established with just one click and provides the same access as if the hearing aid was directly connected to the audiologist’s computer. 
Step 3

The audiologist uses their reprogramming software to make the necessary adjustments to the patient’s hearing aid. Using additional technology such as a video or audio chat, the medical professional can perform all the required tasks without physically touching the device.
