How To Choose The Correct Hearing Aid For The Elderly


Many older people have varying degrees of tinnitus and deafness. To ensure life safety and go out, many older people choose to use hearing aids. What should older people pay attention to when buying a hearing aid? Below we will introduce the matters that should be paid attention to when the elderly buy a hearing aid.

What should older people pay attention to when buying a hearing aid?

1. Consider your age, the cause of deafness, the environment in which you use it, and the financial situation. Choose a hearing aid that suits your situation.

2, the appropriate expectations for hearing aids, especially when you first wear, have patience and determination, because the hearing aid performance is good, it can not replace your own ears, slowly familiar with it, understand that it can control it.

3, just like before the optometry of the glasses, the hearing aid must first check the hearing, according to the results of the hearing test, the hearing aid can be accurate. In addition, optional hearing aids must be sent to regular medical facilities, rehabilitation facilities and accessory facilities. Don't buy one by one, otherwise the hearing aid will not only compensate for hearing, but also damage the original hearing. There are many examples.

4, in order to better play the role of the hearing aid, in the installation of the hearing aid must first make the ear mold according to their own ear type. The ear mold not only makes the hearing aid comfortable to wear, but also improves the acoustics of the hearing aid, sometimes not as a hearing aid itself.

5, just as we have to adapt to glasses and dentures, there is also a hearing aid adaptation process. Just wear a hearing aid and you should listen to some simple sounds in a quiet environment, such as the ticking of the clock, the sound of the faucet, your own footsteps, and so on. After a while, practice listening to your own voice and gradually transition to listening to several people's conversations, listening to the sounds of radio and television; finally, going to public places in complex environments. If there is no such adaptation process, it will start in a noisy environment. A large number of complex sounds that are magnified will enter the ear and will feel very harsh, which will lose confidence and confidence in the hearing aid.

6. Choose according to the ear canal and auricle of the elderly. If the shape of the ear canal is too narrow or too curved, the ear canal hearing aid may be difficult to easily put in or fall out; if the old man's ear is too shallow, the in-the-ear hearing aid may not be used; the elderly will change with age as the finger changes It is becoming more and more inflexible and has certain requirements for the operation difficulty of hearing aids. Mr. Xu said that it is recommended that elderly people who consider the above conditions use a behind-the-ear hearing aid.

Hearing aid use precautions

1. Moisture-proof: Moisture is usually caused by swimming, bathing, shampooing, washing your face, and rain. Need to pay attention to dew and sweat in the morning or in the fog; the battery is not used for several weeks, the battery is not taken out or the inferior battery is used to cause liquid leakage; when the humidity is high, the water vapor in the air invades; others such as hair spray, washing clothes, water, water Vapor, etc.

2. Anti-ear wax: Earwax is usually dry. Generally, chewing and walking, because the vibration will gradually get rid of most of the earwax from the ear canal. However, some of them remain in the ear canal, especially after wearing a custom machine, the earwax causing the mouth of the ear canal or the receiver to be blocked, resulting in no sound or even damage to the receiver.

3. Earthquake resistance: Hearing aids are as scared to fall as quartz watches. Since the components in the hearing aid are connected by very small wires, they are easily broken after being impacted. In particular, due to its structural relationship, the reeds and thimbles that vibrate internally are easily displaced and deformed after impact, resulting in distortion and silence. After the receiver is installed in the housing, although the impact resistance is improved, it is still important to prevent the impact from falling. Be careful because custom sizes are easier to slip off your hands when wearing or disassembling due to their small size.

At last

Wearing a hearing aid must have an adaptive process. When opening a hearing aid, don't expect 100% recovery. When I first put it on, the sound was lighter and gradually increased. I use it indoors first, then use it outdoors, and gradually adapt to it. I avoid wearing a hearing aid. Hearing aids need to be worn for a few hours a day so that they can “work” the sound. Prevent the deterioration of the auditory nerve.

The above is a precaution for the elderly to buy and wear hearing aids. Older people should be cautious when choosing a hearing aid for themselves. According to your own situation, go to the formal business hall to buy. Be sure to pay more attention to these things when you wear them.
