Materialise pre-announces the next generation of automated hearing aid design software

Materialise NV : 24 May, 2006  (New Product)
Materialise, leading developer of software solutions for the rapid prototyping and manufacturing industry, announces the pending release of the 4th generation of its Rapid Shell Modeling software.
With the new release Materialise is taking this innovative software for the automated design of hearing aid shells to the next level. This latest version takes in major enhancements to the user interface and introduces comprehensive binaural modeling. Materialise has updated and extended its functionality for In The Ear modeling. The key innovation however is the possibility to design earmolds. Scheduled for release early April, RSM version 4 is expected to greatly advance its ease-of-use and to speed up the design process for hearing aid shells significantly.

The new Earmold module expands the software's application scope to Behind The Ear (BTE) hearing aids and the hearing protection market. This way Materialise completes its product offering, meeting the growing demand for affordable earmold design software. Similar to RSM's ITE shell design, the Earmold module offers the operator complete design freedom through its variety of modeling tools. The software's wizard structure guides the operator step-by step and design automation is provided through parameterization.

Martin Roth, Phonak AG, who has been closely involved in the development of RSM 4, comments:
'Thanks to the enhancements to the graphical user interface, RSM has not only become more attractive but also particularly user-intuitive, allowing for even more efficient ways of operating. Using the advanced binaural modeling technology you can quickly design the left and right device simultaneously. As the majority of our work orders are binaural projects, we expect to save a lot of time because of this improved technology.'

Highlights of RSM 4.0 are:
Renewed, clearly organized user interface increasing ease-of-use and efficiency
Spaceball View Manipulationsupport, allowing for a simultaneous manipulation of the shell and positioning of the electronics
Binaural modeling dramatically increases design speed by applying all operations on both the left and right ear shell simultaneously, guaranteeing an optimal symmetry
The new Earmold module enables sophisticated modeling of earmolds
'Align & Compare' includes new functionality supporting various verification and quality control tasks.
