HEARING AIDS

The ears serve a lot more functions than you might realise at first. They are fundamental in assimilating speech, music and sounds, and they are used for orientation and localisation. You only have to close your eyes and concentrate fully on your ears and you’ll soon notice that directional hearing is an invaluable orienting guide.

All in all, unimpaired hearing enriches your life all the time everywhere you go, allowing you a greater range of experiences and above all making you safer. The principle behind the hearing process is as follows:

The concha captures external sounds in the form of sound waves. From there, they are funnelled through the auditory canal to the eardrum. Sound is transmitted via the eardrum to the ossicles in the middle ear (called hammer, anvil and stirrup because of their shapes) and from there to the inner ear. In the inner ear, also called the cochlea from the Greek for snail or screw because of its spiral shape, hair cells convert the sound vibrations into electrical impulses. Auditory nerves carry the impulses to the brain which then identifies the sounds as music, a dog’s bark, rushing water, bells chiming, speech, etc.

A non-binding hearing test with a hearing system specialist can provide you with free and fast information about your personal hearing.

Hearing Aid Styles

Hearing loss doesn’t have to slow you down. Once we’ve determined the type and severity of your hearing loss, we’ll discuss treatment options from the following selection of hearing aid styles we offer:

In-The-Ear (ITE)

The “largest” of the in the ear products, the ITE offers greater options for power to fit more severe hearing losses; space to accommodate a variety of options, larger battery size; and ease of manipulation. ITEs can also connect directly to cell phones and be compatible with remote controls and other wireless features.

In-The-Canal (ITC)

ITC hearing aids sit in the lower portion of the outer ear bowl providing for a more discreet fit. Typically ITC hearing aids can still house many of the features of a full shell ITE but are designed for less severe hearing losses. ITCs can also still connect directly to cell phones and be compatible with remote controls or other wireless features.

Completely-In-Canal (CIC)

CICs are more discreet as they are almost completely hidden, yet still large enough to house advanced features. Many CICs can also still connect directly to cell phones and be compatible with remote controls or other wireless features.

Invisible-In-The-Canal (IIC)

IICs are completely invisible when your ear anatomy allows for it – wide enough, tall enough, and angled just right. Due to their small size, IICs can be limited in power and additional features, though some do allow for wireless capabilities.

Behind-The-Ear (BTE)

Behind the Ear (BTE) hearing aids sit behind/on top of the outer ear with the sound directed by a tube or wire into the ear canal. The instruments are manufactured in a variety of different colors to accommodate skin or hair color. BTE hearing aids also come in a variety of sizes and the actual style is best determined by you and our Doctors, as various styles can accommodate different features, power levels, control options and battery sizes.

Receiver-In-Canal (RIC)

This style of device is popular due to its inconspicuous nature and its comfort. Sound travels into the ear canal through a thin tube or via a wire – with the receiver placed directly in the ear canal. Mini BTEs can also connect directly to cell phones and be compatible with remote controls and other wireless features.
