August 8th Meeting Report: Peter Blamey on IHearYou(R) System

Meeting Report
IHearYou(R) – A Modern Tele-audiology System

Presented by Prof Peter Blamey

On Monday August 8th, 16 members and 4 guests assembled in the SAE Melbourne Lecture Theatre for the Annual General Meeting of the AES Melbourne Section, and to hear Peter Blamey present on his company’s IHearYou(R) Modern Tele-Audiology System

After the (mercifully short) AGM, Peter Blamey presented on the IHearYou® technology, its characteristics and benefits. This talk built on the foundation Peter had laid in his June 2016 presentation (see link below)
