1 in 10 people worldwide suffer from hearing loss

Hearing loss is one of the world’s most common health problems. It is also one of the most ignored problems, and this is unfortunate because hearing loss and its psychological side effects are highly
treatable.

 

Hearing loss is not like listening to sounds with the volume turned down. Instead, you may notice that certain spoken sounds — like sh, th and f — are more difficult to hear than others. That’s why people with hearing loss often say they can hear people talking but can’t understand what is being said.

 

  • In individuals suffering from hearing loss, the brain may lose the ability to interpret words due to a lack of stimulation over an extended period of time.

  • The lack of stimulation in this area of the brain causes a loss of  the ability to interpret and understand speech.

  • ​The longer the delay of treatment for a hearing loss, the lesser chance it would be of benefit

  • This condition can affect patients who do not wear hearing aids, wear old hearing aids or only wear one hearing aid when two may be necessary.

Hearing aids matter!

  • Binaural fitting can help restore the natural cues needed for localization and listening in noise.

  • Ongoing research indicates that hearing aids could help maintaining cognitive function.

  • Hearing aids are the only treatment in 95% of hearing loss cases.

  • 80% of Tinnitus patients perceive benefit from hearing aids alone, with no need for additional treatment.
