Hearing Aids Misplaced More Frequently
For most people, we are currently living through unprecedented times. New safety measures have become the new norm. These extra precautions, including social distancing and wearing a face mask, are being practiced for the safety of your health and the health of those around you. As a result, those who wear hearing aids may now be losing their devices more frequently after putting on or removing their face mask.
Misplacing your hearing aids is just as scary as misplacing your keys or wallet. Your hearing aids are a big investment, so it’s alarming to lose something that you wear in order to function in your daily life.
If you are frequently misplacing your hearing aids, there’s a solution for you. Starkey’s Halo and Halo 2 hearing aids feature the “Find My Hearing Aids” in the TruLink Hearing Control app for your smartphone. Simply download the app onto your smartphone and this function can help you locate recently lost hearing aids. It will show a map of where they were last detected or a search signal can be used to help you recover lost devices if you believe they are nearby.
How to use the “Find My Hearing Aids” tool
In the TruLink Hearing Control app, the “Find My Hearing Aids” feature:
It’s important to mention that this will only work as long as the hearing aids’ batteries still have power, or if there is enough power in them from a recharge if you have rechargeable hearing aids. So make sure that you always carry around extra batteries, or your hearing aids have been fully charged before leaving your home.
