History

Dr. Franco Beoni founded Audio Technologies in 1976, initially as micro-mechanic lab for the design and developement of ENT surgical instruments and devices. 

Audio Technologies mergers the potentialities of a medical devices designing company to the direct experience in the operating theatre. 
Developing intuitions with the capability to catch the real medical needs, Audio Technologies manufactures since many years unique and patented products.

Other than Dr. Beoni, Audio Technologies cooperates with a network of doctors which allows to take inspiration from other surgery experiences as well. The result of this scientific cooperation is the develop of products also beyond ENT surgery, such as neuro, spinal, maxillofaccial and dental surgery. The products not related with ENT are marketed with the brand Biosynth (www.bio-synth.net)
