Benefits of Starkey's Livio AI Hearing Aids
Starkey’s Livio AI uses sensors and artificial intelligence to provide feedback on your cognitive health through the Brain Score feature. The score has three categories: Use Time, Engagement, and Active Listening.
Use Time: This measures the amount of time the hearing aids are worn. This is essential because studies have shown that wearing hearing aids lowers the risks of cognitive decline that is linked to hearing loss.
Engagement: This measures the amount of time that is spent in settings where the user has conversations with other people, and streams phone calls. The majority of people who wear hearing aids claim that it helps them to participate in activities.
Active Listening: This measures the different environments and social situations that are encountered throughout the day. The more variety of environments that you are in, the more developed your brain will be from each environment’s stimulation.
The combined efforts of these goals will lead to a maximum Brain Score of 100. The Thrive Hearing app will keep the Brain Score history in order to show how you have progressed through time.
