Brilliant New Hearing Aids Sweeping the UK
In this modern age you no longer have to struggle with hearing loss, thanks to recent developments in hearing technology.
The gift of hearing can transform your life and now that it has been made affordable, nobody should have to struggle with hearing loss, especially when there are so many options available to solve this problem.
The main concern people have with hearing aids is that they are bulky, unsightly and costly. This is no longer the case. The hearing aid industry has been revolutionised of late, with several new hearing aids on the market that are streamlined, discreet and practically invisible.
Who is affected by hearing loss?
In the UK one in six people suffer from some form of hearing loss, and the numbers are rising daily. Contrary to popular belief this is not something that just affects us in old age. There are more than 45,000 deaf children in the UK, with thousands of other children that suffer from temporary hearing loss. Over 900,000 people in the UK are severely or profoundly deaf. Around 6.7 million people* could benefit from hearing aids.
Hearing loss is a serious condition that can be addressed with a very simple solution, which in turn will enhance the quality of your life. Using a hearing aid will simply amplify sound. The aids are available in both analogue and digital and come in a variety of types, shapes and sizes.
What type of devices are available?
The main types of devices on the market are all battery operated and fall into four categories, Behind-the-ear (BTE), In-the-ear (ITE), In-the-canal (ITC) and Completely-in-the-canal (CIC). Hearing aids available on the NHS tend to be bulky behind-the-ear types. However, you can book a free consultation and purchase more discrete types of hearing aids privately.
What are the costs?
The cost of private hearing aids has come down significantly and clinics across the country are competing against each other offering great deals.
