Hearing loss in elderly people is a common disability and is the second chronic problem that is affecting the physical health of elders. This hearing loss also makes hard to understand, follow the speech and also to respond to speech communication. These physical conditions affect the person’s physical, functional, emotional and social well-being. According to the national statistical report, about 40% of people above 65 years have hearing loss, which made elderly people difficult to hear doorbells, car horns and alarms etc, in their daily life. Most age related hearing loss is irreversible, whilst there are devices to compensate which helps people to communicate more easily. Technological advances in hearing aids have expanded significantly, and these hearing aids can be selected based on the type of hearing problem. The technology of rechargeable hearing aids has developed quite extensively over the past few years and the tools can determine the level of amplification required for you and automatically adjusts the level of speech throughout your day.
Some of the Common Hearing Aids are:
Personal listening systems: From Business meetings to theatre performances to talking on the phone, these personal listen systems help you to hear in every situation throughout your day by eliminating or lowering the other noises around you. The sound wizard II in coordination with the Phone module, IR module and other optical accessories transforms the muffled sounds into a clear reception for clear communication. This is equipped with a dual headset jacks that will allow two people to use the sound wizard II simultaneously with no reduction of output.
Some others, such as FM systems and personal amplifiers are better for one-on-one conversations.
TV listening systems: It is specially designed for people who are suffering from severe hearing loss, who cannot hear the television clearly. This has an independent volume, tone and balanced control. It will also avoid the background noises that interrupt television viewing while conversation on telephone or the sounds coming from other places etc.
In TV systems you have a dual TV listening system which is specifically designed to help two people with a mild, moderate or severe hearing loss.
Telephone amplifying devices: Conversations on telephone some times are difficult to hear for elder people.. In such cases these devices are used to help eliminate this hearing problem. Built in amplification devices can help hearing impairments to use the phone successfully. These telephone amplifying devices reduce the background noise and make the incoming voice louder and easier to understand.
