You read that headline correctly. Our Hearing Center at the Ear, Nose and Throat Institute provides the best modern technology when it comes to hearing aids. The new Starkey and Phonak devices are not only smaller than your average hearing aid, but they fit to perfection in your ear. So for those that are hesitant on hearing aids because of how they look in public: don’t fret. Starkey and Phonak devices are now invisible, but that doesn’t mean it lacks in function either.
Not only is it for hearing loss, but for other great features as well. Here’s a list of some of the functions:
Remote Access and Volume Control
Once you meet with one of our audiologists at the Hearing Center, the hearing aid will be personalized to you and your needs. There is an adjustment period, so if you’re out and about and the volume is too high or too low, the audiologist can remotely access the device and adjust the sound to a more manageable volume.
Say you’ve come to your favorite restaurant to watch the game, but there is more than one TV on at one time. With the Livio AI device and an app on the phone, you can hone in on a specific TV and hear it through the hearing aids.
With the fall detection feature, if you lose your balance and fall over, the device will alert your three emergency contacts immediately.
These are just a few of the features that we can offer you at the Hearing Center. Our trained team of audiologists and providers are here to help you get back to hearing and socializing with their expert diagnosis and treatment options. Don’t let the physical look of hearing aids bother you any longer, keeping you from getting the care that you need.
