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