Losing or lacking the ability to hear can leave those affected feeling isolated and frustrated, as well as dependent on others. If left untreated, a person’s degree of hearing loss can gradually deteriorate with the prolonged lack of sound stimulation, putting them at risk of auditory deprivation. With regards to children, the inability to hear means they are missing out on the fundamental building blocks required to communicate well and interact with the world around them. As such, it is important to consider devices such as hearing aids, which amplify sound and, in turn, allow a person to enjoy a better quality of life with their family, friends and colleagues.
Hearing aids are made up of a microphone, amplifier and speaker. Together, these components receive sounds and convert them into electrical signals, which are amplified and delivered to the ear.
Hearing aids are proven to have a profound and positive impact on their users’ quality of life. People who treat their hearing impairment with a hearing aid have noted the following benefits:
- No more straining to hear conversations or sounds
- Improved relationships with family and friends
- Significant improvements in one-on-one communication
- Better use of entertainment applications
- Greater independence and enhanced self-esteem
