"We work on this principle of habituation," Brenda Edin, the head of Otoharmonics marketing, told MobiHealthNews. "It's like living by a train station or an airport. When you first move inin all you hear are planes landing or trains going by. After months you don't hear them at all.

"Receiving 510(k) clearance from the FDA is a major milestone and an achievement that represents the dedication of an entire team" says Michael Baker
