Hear bet­ter

Bulletin - - Contents -

One of the ef­fects MEDTECH of ag­ing is hear­ing loss. Ac­cord­ing to the World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion ( WHO), some 35 per­cent of peo­ple aged 65 or older are hear­ing im­paired. They need hear­ing aids – prefer­ably ones that no­body can see. The Swiss com­pany Sonova has teamed up with Sil­i­con Val­ley ex­perts to de­velop Lyric, a hear­ing aid that is placed deep in the ear canal so that it is not vis­i­ble and can be worn around the clock for months at a time – even for sports and in the shower.
