HEARING AID TRIAL & FITTING

A hearing aid is a small electronic device that you wear in or behind your ear. It makes some sound louder so that a person with hearing loss can listen, communicate, and participate more successfully in daily activities. A hearing aid can help people with hearing loss to hear better in both quiet and noisy situations.

Hearing aids are primarily useful in improving the hearing and speech comprehension of people who have hearing loss that results from damage to the small sensory cells in the inner ear, called hair cells. This type of hearing loss is called sensori neural hearing loss. The damage can occur because of disease, aging, or injury from noise or certain medicines.

A hearing aid magnifies sound vibrations entering the ear. Surviving hair cells detect the larger vibrations and convert them into neural signals that are passed along to the brain.

To get an individually fitted hearing aid, it is necessary to make a casting of the ear canal to ensure that the ear mould fits perfectly. No two ears are alike and especially children need to have new ear moulds made regularly as their ears grow and mature.

COUNSELLING

A case that who is successfully fitted with a hearing aid is later counseled regarding care and maintenance of the hearing aid, use of residual hearing and amplification and effective use of alternate modes.
