Hearing Technology and Medical Implications


Hearing technology is constantly changing and improving. Some developments in hearing technology may impact on medical practice. On this page, we will try and keep you informed of any technological changes that may impact your clinical practice.


Phonak Lyric

Lyric is a new model of hearing aid that has been compared to contact lenses, in that patients have the device inserted into their ear canal where it stays for weeks at a time, sitting invisibly and requiring no maintenance until it is replaced by an audiologist. As the device is in situ for extended periods and requires professional help to remove, it has several implications on medical practice. The Lyric Information for Doctors booklet covers these implications and can be found below.
