New research is changing the way we think about hearing aids by unlocking the secret to how our brains process sound and paving the way for improved treatments and technologies.
Designed for people with a mild to moderate hearing loss and who are not quite ready to commit to professionally fitted hearing aids. The SHIFT hearing devices can be easily programmed by the user, using the SHIFT hearing app. Once programmed, the SHIFT hearing app functions as a remote control. You can adjust the volume and programs. The SHIFT ready-to-wear hearing devices have two programs; the main automatic program and a special program for listening to music.
We have changed our hearing services delivery model for stage 4 restrictions. We are open for telehealth services and urgent face-to-face services. We can provide hearing services via telehealth to most clients including pensioners, veterans, and other eligible clients funded under the Hearing Services Program (HSP) and people under WorkSafe, TAC, DVA and NDIS. We can also provide hearing services for people with Chronic Disease Management (CDM) plans.
As hearing health care practitioners, we are facing challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic. How do we deliver hearing services to our clients in a safe way?
As audiologists we understand the vital importance of hearing for your wellbeing and quality of life. With COVID-19 restrictions, more are relying on telephones, video-chats, radio, and television for connecting. These all depend on good hearing. Some people with hearing loss are finding the current times particularly challenging. Also, following a conversation with someone wearing a facemask can be difficult for people with hearing loss.
People who treat their hearing loss with hearing aids are happier, healthier and wealthier compared to people who do not use hearing aids. These are results found in a report “hearing loss – numbers and costs” published by hear-it AISBL*.
A friend told me a story about a “stubborn” father. This friend, let’s call her Anne, was invited to a Christmas lunch. There were about 30 family and friends at the lunch, including the older parents of the host of the party and all their middle-age children. As the lunch progressed, the children started complaining about how stubborn their father was and how he wasn’t listening to anything they said. Anne, who has known me for many years, said she could “tell straight away that the father had trouble hearing”.
Users of iPhone 5 or newer smartphones have been able to stream voice and music to compatible hearing aids for a few years. Resound were the first hearing aid manufacturer to release ‘Made for iPhone’ devices. Today most hearing aid brands have hearing aids ‘Made for iPhone’ which has been great for iPhone users. They have been able to stream voice calls and music directly to the hearing aids without the need of an intermediary device. Which has not been the case for Android user - up to now. Android users could stream voice and music but had to use of an intermediary device called a streamer. Some have not liked this as it meant having the streamer on a lanyard around your neck of clipped to clothing.
