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

Human aging is irresistible, with the degradation of various organs. The hearing loss of the elderly is more serious. Choose a hearing aid that suits them to improve their lives.

 

1. Consider your age, the reasons for deafness, the environment in which you use it, and your 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 the previous optometry, you must first check the hearing, according to the results of the hearing test, the elderly hearing aids can be accurate. In addition, hearing aids must be sent to routine medical facilities, rehabilitation facilities and ancillary 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 hearing aids, you must first make ear molds according to your own ear type when installing hearing aids. 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 simple sounds in a quiet environment, such as the ticking of a clock, the sound of a faucet, your own footsteps, and more. After a while, practice listening to your own voice, gradually transitioning to listening to several people's conversations, listening to the sound of radio and television; Finally, go 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; as the finger changes, the elderly will As the age becomes more and more inflexible, there are certain requirements for the operation difficulty of the hearing aid. It is recommended that elderly people who consider the above situation 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. This moisture can cause the hearing aid to be damaged and not working properly.

When the humidity is high, sweat will slide into the hearing aid along the scalp; avoid hearing aid damage when sweating.


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 ear canal or receiver to be blocked, resulting in no sound or even damage to the receiver.

 

3. Shock resistance: Hearing aids are as fragile 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 internal vibrating reed and thimble are easily displaced and deformed after impact, resulting in deformation and damage. After the receiver is installed in the housing, although the impact resistance is improved, it is still important to prevent the impact from falling. Please note that because the elderly are slow to respond, the size of the hearing aid is small, and it is easier to slip off the hand when wearing or disassembling the hearing aid. It is best to have someone assist them!

At last

Older people wearing hearing aids must have an adaptive process. When opening a hearing aid, don't expect 100% recovery. When worn for the first time, the sound is lighter and gradually increases. Use it indoors first, then use it outdoors, and gradually adapt to it. Older people need to wear a few hours a day so they can "work" the sound. Prevent the deterioration of the auditory nerve.

 

These are the precautions 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.
