The US Army’s TCAPS program has been awarded the Safe-in-Sound 2018 Innovation in Hearing Loss Prevention Award.
At the 2018 Annual Hearing Conservation Conference in Orlando, Florida, INVISIO’s customer, the US Army and their Tactical Communications and Protective System (TCAPS) initiative, was recognized for innovation and prevention of noise-induced hearing loss practices. INVISIO’s hearing protection and communication systems have been at the heart of their success.
“We congratulate the U.S. Army’s TCAPS program on receiving this prestigious award, and for having the foresight for their leadership in the defense community regarding hearing protection. INVISIO is proud to be an equipment provider to the TCAPS program”, said Lars Højgård Hansen, CEO of INVISIO.
