Hearing loss can impact several areas of our lives: communication, social relationships, work life and state of mind. It can lead to Dementia and reduced cognitive functioning. According to the American Academy of Audiology, hearing loss affects more people than Diabetes, Epilepsy, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease combined. But only 20% of patients rely on hearing aids. If it goes untreated, hearing loss can reduce earnings by over 90%.
Hearing aids treat cognitive decline that comes from hearing loss. It can reduce stress and irritability that arises from tinnitus (ringing ears). 90% of the hearing impaired enjoy a better quality of life after wearing hearing aids than those who go untreated.

Types of hearing aids
Hearing aids are tiny digital devices containing a microphone to amplify hearing. They can be customized to your needs. Sophisticated models are fitted with smartphone or rechargeable batteries. There are several kinds of hearing aids:
- Standard Models: For mild to moderate hearing loss.
- Power Models: For severe hearing loss.
Most hearing aids are now produced using advanced wireless technology that allow a hearing aid in each ear, together operating as a complete system. They can be connected to external sound sources such as Bluetooth to transmit sound wirelessly.
Hearing aids are available in two styles: in-the-ear (ITE) and behind-the-ear (BTE). However, not all hearing aids are suited for everyone.
