Driven by a strong passion to improve the quality of life for the hearing impaired and to provide health care professionals with more accurate diagnostic tools, Danish audiology specialist Interacoustics aims to share its expertise with partners and clients in Asia.

Beginning in 1967 as a manufacturer and supplier of audiometers, Interacoustics has evolved into a leading name in audiological instrumentation – with a global network of sales offices, distributors and service centres in more than 100 countries. Celebrating its 50th year, Interacoustics has developed into a full line supplier of diagnostic equipment for hearing screening on newborns, balance testing and rehabilitation, hearing testing on the brainstem besides normal hearing tests and diagnosis of the middle ear.

“Interacoustics is known for close co-operation with universities, thereby bringing new technologies to the industry and not merely upgrading existing ones,” says Carsten Kind, president. “We’re forward-thinking with our own research unit where we focus on inventing new technologies. Our products are developed with a long-term consideration of future needs and stand out for their user-friendliness and reliability.”

The company provides complete solutions in audiometry, evoked potential, hearing aid fitting, impedance, otoacoustic emission and diagnosis of dizziness. Key offerings include its Balance product line, targeting dizziness problems, and the Titan series – a landmark technology seamlessly integrating various tests into one platform.

Interacoustics also offers value-added services such as training in the latest diagnostic audiology and balance developments through its Interacoustics Academy.

With subsidiaries in China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Malaysia, and distributors across Southeast Asia, Interacoustics is committed to the needs of customers in the region.

“We want to be seen as a global company with a local approach and therefore market adaptation is key – from adjusting the language of our software to adapting our products to Asian features,” Kind says. “We’re a trustworthy long-term partner, with reliable products at the forefront of technology. We’ve been in this industry for five decades and will continue to be for many years.”
