Sohum hearing screening, is a unique system solution to screen newborns for hearing loss in global resource-poor settings to prevent speech loss.

Creating awareness of
timely screening

A majority of the Indian population believes that if a person is hearing impaired they can’t speak. Creating awareness about the criticality of timely screening is a part of our focus.

Developing affordable technology

After doing an immersive research we boiled it down to five unique must-have features for Sohum to perform in resource constrained settings around the world and built these into the device.

Building an
after-care cycle

We have a unique audiologist network to assist our device. Every child tested positive will be referred to Sohum certified audiologist. In this way, interventions will be ensured and measured with follow-ups.
