SINUS 2 / system of accomplished hearing


Lebens(t)räume 2007

Lebens(t)räume 2007

A consequently offensive design could provide hearing devices without compromises either in ergonomy or in funktionality. The struggle between technical shrinking and usability suggests a separation of steering and hearing. The operating unit provides useful additional functions such as telephone, audio recording and playback, orientation guidance and emergency calls. The whole concept aims for usability by means of simple structure and great usage certitude. The integration of essential communicational and navigational functions and a self-contained appearance enhances the rejected prosthesis to a system for accomplished hearing.
