Dr. Bauman invented the ‘Totally Open Canal’™ Hearing Aid, Vivatone®. Vivatone® was the first hearing aid of its kind known to eliminate hearing aid wearer’s common frustrations of “feeling plugged up”, or feeling like they were in an echo chamber. Because Vivatone® hearing aids allow an open ear canal, the plugged up and echo chamber are eliminated and a more natural sound is heard. It’s size and ability to be worn behind the ear provides wearers with a discreet hearing aid.
Dr. Bauman has published numerous articles in professional journals. He is a frequent guest speaker and lecturer at audiological symposiums both nationally and internationally.
