Description: The Genie Medical software programs the Ponto bone anchored hearing aid, ConnectClip, and Oticon Opn hearing aid processors. This technology allows the audiologist to program the output of these devices according to the individual`s hearing loss with in-situ audiometry. Genie Medical provides a pediatric fitting mode that provides professionals a centralized way to view and change children`s hearing aid settings.

This technology can use a proprietary Genie Medical BAHS database to store data. This method is optional and is not included in all editions; users may also store data on local storage devices if necessary.

Genie Medical differs from the Genie and Genie 2 software, which is also produced by the vendor.

This technology is available in multiple editions that the vendor dictates with versioning. These editions provide proprietary functionality for different releases of the vendor`s associated hardware. At the time of writing, the 2016.x and 2021.x editions are considered current; this entry covers both editions. Per the vendor, the 2019.x edition was obsoleted by the 2021.x edition. For more information, please visit the OneNote page via the `Reference` tab (within the VA network only).

Please note that there is no specific product page for this technology and thus the webpage for the hearing device this software supports is used in its place (Ponto hearing aid).
