Oticon Medical General Manager after US FDA approval: It's a competitive situation

Demant's bone-anchored division Oticon Medical will be put to the test when establishing itself on the US market for cochlear implants following the FDA approval last week. Competing companies are far ahead, and the Danish firm still has gaps to close in its product range, according to General Manager Jes Olsen.

On Thursday last week, Demant's bone-anchored division was delighted to announce that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given the necessary authorization for the Danish hearing company to sell and market its cochlear implant system Neuro 2 on what is unconditionally the largest market in the world.

"This is huge for us. Perhaps the largest milestone in the history of Oticon. I cannot stress enough how significant it is that we can enter the US with out Neuro 2 implant system – a game changer, is what I'd call it," Oticon Medical General Manager Jes Olsen told MedWatch.
