After getting a proper hearing assesment (Audiogram, Tympanogram), depending on the severity of the aforementioned hearing, loss, degree and type, a wide portfolio of hearing solutions can be provided to offer you the best result and maximum comfort ranging from pediatric to adults. Hearing aids are small, lightweight electronic devices that sit in the outer ear, within the ear canal, or behind the ear. Their main function is to amplify sound in a natural and comfortable way. A hearing aid consists of a microphone, an amplifier or processor and a loudspeaker that transmits the optimized sounds into your ear. A small battery provides the necessary energy. Modern devices are customized to fit the shape of your ear, the degree of your hearing loss, your lifestyle and your hearing habits.
1. BEHIND THE EAR (BTE)
BTE models are available for all degrees of hearing loss and, as the name suggests, they can be worn comfortably behind the ear. These models are available in many different colors, styles and designs.
2. RECEIVER IN CANAL (RIC)
These models are smaller than standard BTE models and are available for mild to severe hearing loss. They can be worn comfortably behind the ear. Incoming signals are amplified and transmitted into the ear via very small, unobtrusive tubes. These models are available in many different colors, styles and designs.
3. IN THE EAR (ITE)
These models are made specifically to fit the shape of your ear canal for maximum benefit and the best possible comfort. They are available in many skin tones, are unobtrusive and very effective. The smallest models sit in your ear canal and are virtually invisible. These models are suitable for mild to severe hearing loss. These models vary from visible in the canal (ITC), discreet completely in the canal (CIC) and Invisible in the Canal (IIC).
