Starkey Hearing Technologies is thrilled to introduce a product that can help give millions of people, their families and caregivers peace of mind. Fall Alert, a revolutionary feature of Livio AI, can detect falls and send alert messages to selected contacts. Starkey Hearing Technologies incorporated significant new inventions to avoid false-positives and flag only true falls. Falling is a major health issue and a growing concern. According to the National Alliance for Caregivers, and AARP, more than 65 million people (29 percent of the U.S. population) currently provide care for a
disabled, chronically ill or aged friend or family member. According to the National Council on Aging, every 11 seconds, an older adult is seen in an emergency department for a fall-related injury and one in every three older adults – about 12 million – fall every year in the U.S. “Livio AI and its fall-alert feature will not only provide peace of mind to caregivers but could potentially save lives all over the world.
Livio AI’s embedded sensors and artificial intelligence also paved the way for in-ear receivers that provide accurate heart-rate measurement and heart-rate recovery information. This empowers people to engage proactively in their own fitness efforts and improve their overall health. To further add to the usability and multi-function of Livio AI, Starkey Hearing Technologies is introducing
the Thrive Virtual Assistant, which is integrated with the Google Assistant for hands-free help whenever and wherever the wearer needs it. This application-based assistant can answer questions such as, “What’s today’s weather forecast?” It also allows the user to conveniently troubleshoot hearing aid and accessory issues.
Livio AI includes a new mobile app—Thrive™ Hearing Control; and four new wireless accessories: Starkey Hearing Technologies TV, the Remote, Mini Remote Microphone and the Remote Microphone +. With the Remote Microphone +, Livio AI is also the first hearing aid to feature Amazon® Alexa connectivity.
