Roger bridges the understanding gap for students with hearing loss
Date:4/3/2013

WARRENVILLE, Ill., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Phonak, the world-wide market leader in FM technology, introduces Roger, a new digital standard that bridges the understanding gap, in noise and over distance, by wirelessly transmitting the speaker's voice directly to the listener. Available for the education market beginning Summer 2013, Roger surpasses all of today's FM and equivalent digital systems. It offers a scientifically proven1 breakthrough in signal-to-noise ratio and eliminates the hassle of frequency management.

Educational audiologists and teachers of the deaf have traditionally specified FM and equivalent digital systems for students with hearing loss. The result: Many thousands of children have been able to better hear and understand the teacher in class. However, despite FM technology having shown significant performance gains in recent years, (i.e., the introduction of Dynamic FM in 2007) Phonak engineers set a goal to develop a system that would result in even greater understanding at all noise levels. Additionally, they challenged themselves to create wireless systems significantly easier for healthcare professionals and teachers to set up and use.

A wireless revolution

Built upon a new proprietary Phonak microchip and speech-in-noise algorithm, Roger overcomes the challenges that FM and digital system users have faced until now. It is proven to help students hear and understand more of the teacher's words than ever before, and Roger systems are simple to use.

  • Maximum performance
    Roger offers the industry's best ever speech-in-noise performance, with proven improvements of up to 54%1 over FM, and 35%1 over Dynamic FM technology.
  • Zero hassle
    Unlike with FM systems, there are no frequencies for audiologists to program and manage (so no software is required), and teachers can quickly connect devic
