Hearing affects everything between your ears

 

From Oticon People First – BrainHearingTM – Helping the brain make sense of sound.

Untreated hearing loss increases the risk of mental decline.

Did you know that we hear with our brains, not our ears?
Surprising, perhaps, but true. Our ears simply pick up sounds and pass them to the brain. The brain then turns those sounds into meaning.

Hearing loss is a fact of life. Virtually all of us will experience it. The first sign is that it becomes harder to communicate with people. This may quickly reduce your social contact – whether you notice it or not. And social contact is a vital source of stimulation for the brain. Without it, the risk of mental decline increases. The greater the untreated hearing loss, the greater the risk of dementia.

BrainHearing™ – the new big thing

 

BrainHearing™ – the new big thing

It’s your brain that hears, not your ears. The sounds your ears receive are sent to your brain where they are translated into meaning. If you suffer from hearing loss, your brain tries to fill in the gaps of sounds you don’t hear. This can be difficult and exhausting, and it makes it harder for you to participate in what is going on around you.

Oticon hearing aids feature BrainHearing™ technology, designed to support your brain and help it make sense of sound, with less effort. This powerful approach enables you to:

Organise sounds and orient yourself with your surroundings

Hear better in challenging environments

Understand speech, engage in conversations and switch your focus

Listen according to your personal preferences

BrainHearing technology is based on four key features:

Speech Guard E– superb speech recognition

Speech Guard E protects speech clarity and details for you to easily understand what is being said – even in noisy surroundings.

Spatial Sound – locate the sources of sound

Spatial Sound supports your brain’s natural ability to sense where sounds are coming from – even in noisy situations. This helps you know where to focus your attention.

Free Focus – zoom in on what’s most important

Free Focus consists of automatic zoom functions to help you easily focus on the most important sounds. It helps you shift your focus from one conversation to another.

YouMatic – shape the sound to suit you

The way you hear is as unique to you as your DNA. YouMatic is a tool to personalise your hearing instruments to your unique and personal hearing preferences and needs

5 Ways Addressing Hearing Loss Can Make for Happier Long Week Ends!

Addressing hearing loss really can add to quality of life—during holidays and year round. Here’s what getting a hearing test and using our professionally fitted hearing aids may do for you:

1. Strengthen ties with family and friends. Healthy relationships rest largely on good communication. In one BHI study, more than half the respondents said using hearing aids improved their relationships at home, their social lives, and their ability to join in groups. Many even saw improvements in their romance.

2. Raise your spirits. People with untreated hearing loss often feel angry, frustrated, anxious, isolated, and depressed. But research shows that when they use hearing aids, many become more socially engaged, feel a greater sense of safety and independence, and see a general improvement in their overall quality of life.

3. Lead you to feel better about yourself. An important perk of using hearing aids can be enhanced emotional well-being. Research shows that when people with hearing loss use hearing aids, many feel more in control of their lives and less self-critical. One BHI study found that the majority of people with mild and severe hearing loss felt better about themselves and life overall as a result of using hearing aids.

4. Keep your mind sharp. Studies out of Johns Hopkins linked hearing loss with accelerated cognitive decline in older adults and found that seniors with hearing loss are significantly more likely to develop dementia over time. BHI studies found that many people with hearing loss report improvements in their cognitive skills with the use of hearing aids.

5. Unleash your earning potential. Hearing your best at work helps you do your best. One study found that using hearing aids reduced the risk of income loss by 90 to 100 percent for those with milder hearing loss, and from 65 to 77 percent for those with severe to moderate hearing loss. And people with hearing loss who use hearing aids are more likely to be employed than their peers who don’t.

WHAT IS A HEARING TEST

WHAT IS A HEARING TESTWhat is a hearing test?

A hearing test takes place in a sound-proofed room or cubicle. You will take a seat, put on some headphones and listen.

We will start playing sounds that start at a bass tone and work up to treble tone and ask you to push a button when you hear each sound. Each time you press the button, we will plot your results which will enable them ascertain your hearing range.

Once your type and degree of hearing loss has been determined, we will be able to decide how much amplification you will need; they may then show you a range of instruments appropriate for your individual hearing loss and together we can decide what is right for you.

Our hearing tests aren’t confined to a “one size fits all” approach, but carefully designed to match each individual we see at one of our clinics. We assess the specific conditions of their hearing. Our staff are qualified to ensure that every client feels comfortable and that their hearing gets the best assessment by using the latest diagnostic technologies.

Our Testing Range

At Hearing And Audiology, we offer a comprehensive range of hearing tests, which includes the following subtypes:

•Adult Testing

•Children’s Testing

These tests are carried out in both quiet and noisy environments, so that we can be effective at determining particular types of hearing loss and determine the best course of treatment.
