Hearing aids are used when a person’s hearing becomes weaker and they experience hearing loss. Hearing aids provide assistance for them to hear better in many situations of their lives. Some of these may be:
- When listening to others
- In groups of people where speech may come from varying directions
- In noisy places where background noise can muffle speech
- Watching television
- Taking phone calls.Hearing loss is caused by a number of reasons such as during the ageing process or due to time spent working in noisy environments or following sudden loud noises.
Hearing aids come in many styles and can be tailored to suit the person’s hearing loss, lifestyle and budget. They can be worn behind or in the ear and some are designed to be completely invisible for those seeking a more discreet solution.
Many styles of hearing aids are now rechargeable, Bluetooth compatible and can be synched to digital devices. Some hearing aids are removed at night but there are some styles available that can be worn 24/7, in the shower and during exercise.
