What Is Rexton Inc.?:
Advice from Rexton's Website:
The hearing library also includes downloadable PDFs with the titles "Tips for Success" and "Tips for Family." The Tips for Success PDF gives advice to people who are trying to adjust to their new hearing aids. One tip points out that the wearer's voice may sound odd to the wearer at first. Another tip is about how to deal with group conversation situations.
In Tips for Family, Rexton offers suggestions for family members, such as being aware that long distance reduces the ability of the hearing aid user to understand. Another family tip encourages the family to be aware of the impact of noisy environments on the user's ability to hear.
Other Features of Rexton's Site:
The Rexton.com site also has a "find-a-professional" feature to assist with finding a healthcare professional to help with hearing tests and selecting an appropriate hearing instrument. Submitting the form puts the consumer in contact with Rexton, which then schedules a hearing test.
In addition, an FAQ section answers common questions from hearing aid users such as, "Can I purchase hearing aids online?" The answer is that Rexton does not support online hearing aid sales because hearing aids are medical devices that need to be fitted by qualified health professionals. Further, the site also has two videos on hearing loss. Unfortunately, at the time the site was visited, neither video had captions.
Rexton's Hearing Instruments:
Rexton offers a full line of hearing aid products - from the behind-the-ear style to in-the-canal hearing aids. Rexton's hearing aid products range from a very basic hearing aid with limited features, such as Arena (no Bluetooth technology), to sophisticated hearing instruments, such as Insite, with Bluetooth technology, wireless assistance and smoothing of sounds (the softening of sudden sounds like glass breaking).
Over time, as new hearing aid technologies become available, features that are not available today in the most basic hearing aid model will become available even in the basic models. All of Rexton's hearing instruments are digital. Rexton also sells accessories such as a battery charger for recharging hearing aid batteries, wireless remote controls for the hearing aids and Bluetooth accessories for streaming sound directly to the hearing aid.
