Hearing aids are a powerful device that can help you hear and communicate with others.
Studies have shown that wearing hearing aids can improve your everyday life. It can also give you a better sense of safety and allow you to be more independent.
The Washington University School of Medicine discovered that adults have better outcomes in balance tests while wearing hearing aids. The study concludes that hearing loss treatment may lower the risk of falling as long as a properly fit hearing device is used.
Better awareness in your surroundings
Using your sense of hearing is crucial in any environment. Hearing can help you avoid accidents by identifying danger in your immediate surroundings. Automobiles, pets, and sirens - along with the direction that they are emerging from - can be recognized with hearing aids. Getting treatment for your hearing will help you be more aware and remain safe as you go about your daily routines.
An increase in safety
Many studies have connected hearing loss that goes untreated to a higher risk in safety problems. These risks include injuries that are caused by accidents, work-related injuries and recurring and lengthier visits to the hospital. Wearing a hearing aid can reduce worries for you and your family by lowering risks to your safety and having a better sense of security.
Starkey's Livio AI hearing aids feature built-in 3D sensors that can recognize when a wearer falls and alert selected family or friends.
