Are you con­cerned that hear­ing aids will ‘age’ you?

The Observer (Sarnia) - - NATIONAL NEWS -

For those who have hear­ing loss, one of the lead­ing con­cerns is that wear­ing hear­ing aids can show their age. His­tor­i­cally, hear­ing aids have been the ac­ces­sory of the older gen­er­a­tion and were un­com­fort­able and clunky. But now a new hear­ing aid on the mar­ket is chang­ing all of that. The Uni­tron Moxi™ Fit R is so small and un­ob­tru­sive, it vir­tu­ally dis­ap­pears into your ear. In fact, it’s the small­est recharge­able hear­ing in­stru­ment in the world†.

If you’re con­cerned about hear­ing aids mak­ing you look older, you’re not alone. Re­search shows that wear­ing hear­ing aids still car­ries a neg­a­tive stigma and are as­so­ci­ated with old age - caus­ing many to be in de­nial of their hear­ing loss. How­ever, leaving your hear­ing loss un­treated can lead to “au­di­tory de­pri­va­tion” and may show your age ev­ery time you have to ask some­one to re­peat them­selves. Peo­ple who suf­fer from au­di­tory de­pri­va­tion of­ten have dif­fi­culty pro­cess­ing speech. Re­search shows that the longer an ear goes with­out hear­ing, the greater its ef­fects can be. Hear­ing aids may pre­vent au­di­tory de­pri­va­tion as they pro­vide stim­u­la­tion to the au­di­tory nerves and au­di­tory cor­tex. Fur­ther, the speech un­der­stand­ing abil­i­ties of some peo­ple may im­prove with hear­ing aids (re­cov­ery from au­di­tory de­pri­va­tion). How­ever, if hear­ing aids are put off for too long, it may cause long-lasting speech un­der­stand­ing dif­fi­cul­ties. Au­di­tory de­pri­va­tion and ‘out­ing’ your age may be pre­vented for some clients with the new Uni­tron Moxi™ Fit R. At only 2.82 cm tall, its size and award win­ning de­sign gives users the ul­ti­mate flex­i­bil­ity. Charge overnight and be ready for a full day of con­ver­sa­tions. If you for­get to charge them, en­joy the con­ve­nience of swap­ping in tra­di­tional zinc-air bat­ter­ies. You shouldn’t have to worry about run­ning out of power. For such a small pack­age, it packs a lot of punch, too. It uti­lizes today’s most ad­vanced tech­nolo­gies, al­low­ing it to iden­tify dif­fer­ent sound en­vi­ron­ments and ad­just it­self ac­cord­ingly. The re­sult is a nat­u­ral sound, im­prov­ing your abil­ity to fo­cus on con­ver­sa­tions.
