Starkey Livio AI
The Starkey Livio AI hearing aid model is the latest contribution from Starkey to the world of hearing aids. It was considered the world's first 'Healthable' hearing aid using integrated sensors and artificial intelligence and the first to track cognitive and behavioral activities. More than just a hearing aid, it is a platform for better health and well being.
The Livio Ai has changed the very concept what a hearing aid is. With advanced environmental monitoring that helps boost sound quality, fall detection warnings, body movement tracking, geotagging and remote programming, some of the most cutting edge technologies are all packed into one model. In recognition of Starkey's accomplishments, Livio AI has earned a spot on TIME's 2019 list of the best inventions of the year.
