Hearing aids are electronic, battery-powered devices that assist individuals who suffer from hearing loss. Since hearing loss does not come in one single form, we strive to provide the most comprehensive array of hearing aids from a number manufacturers to best suit our patients needs.
A hearing aid consists of a microphone, alongside a receiver and an amplifier. Together, these three individual components provide clearer sound to the user. Initially the microphone turns sounds in the surrounding environment into electronic signals. The amplifier is then able to amplify these acoustic electronic signals. The receiver changes these amplified electronic signals back into sounds that a person can hear.
Just like many other pieces technology, hearing aids are becoming more and more sophisticated everyday. Hearing aids have continuously grown by leaps and bounds over the years, preventing unwanted feedback and creating clearer, crisper sound for the user.
A hearing aid does not cure hearing loss but aids against it’s negative effects. Hearing aids allow those who suffer from hearing loss to live better lives. Enjoy the voices of your loved ones and the sounds of nature once again. Hearing loss does not have to ruin your life. Give us a call, we are here to help.
