Arthritis Foundation Grants Ease-Of-Use Commendation to Duracell EasyTab Hearing Aid Battery
Date:4/9/2008

BETHEL, Conn., April 9, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 46 million people -- one in five adults -- in the United States report having a form of doctor-diagnosed arthritis.(1) Many of these adults also suffer from hearing loss and face dexterity challenges when changing their hearing aid battery.

Additional design benefits include compact, but simple-to-open packaging and color-coded batteries to make distinguishing size effortless on-shelf and at home. The unique EasyTab design has earned several industry awards including the Pharmacy Times "Master's Circle" Award and the 2007 Pharmacist Recommended OTC Achievement Award.
