Jane Woodward, Product Audiology Manager

“I knew there had to be a better way.”

When Jane was working in clinic, most of the hearing technology was designed for adults, and would be tweaked or adjusted for children. “But one thing you learn in the clinics is that children have very, very different needs than adults,” she says. The idea that technology could be designed to cater specifically for the needs of children is what brought her to Phonak.
