1. Baha and a Roger Pen
Bob Williams shares his story of single sided deafness, his Baha and how he gets better hearing with a device called a Roger pen.
2. Assistive Listening Devices
Finding the right Assistive Listening Device can be a minefield. It is regularly seen as ‘too hard’. As a result so many people don’t even ask for help. Sometimes just knowing there are devices which can help is a giant leap in finding solutions for you.
3. Tongue hearing
There have been many devices trialled over the years, which are said to help the deaf hear. From hearing trumpets to finger ticklers, waist devices and the latest of these is the Tongue Device.
4. Hearing Television
Television is without doubt, one of our primary leisure activities. But to do this it assumes we have access to the audio content and for those of us who are deaf, hard of hearing or need hearing aids or cochlear implants this can sometimes be challenging.
5. Baha to combat deafness - What is it?
Some people do not have an ear or ear canal and certain kinds of tumours, or the operation to remove them, can cause loss of the middle ear. Sound cannot penetrate the damaged portion but a bone conduction hearing aid could be an option.
6. Hearing in background noise
Background noise is a problem for everyone, even those with full hearing. But for those of us who have hearing aids or Cochlear Implants it presents an even greater problem.
Bone anchored hearing aids - what are they? It's a bit of a misnomer actually because, while in one sense they are hearing Aid, they are not a traditional hearing aid.
8. Why our ears are so important
Most people take their ears for granted. After all you were born with them and just like our eyes or mouth your hearing ability developed without you even thinking about it. Most of us never stop to consider what it would be like if our hearing stopped working.
9. Managing your hearing loss - stages
Managing your hearing loss – what stage are you in? Determining what stage of hearing loss you have reached helps you manage it.
10. Travel plans
In a few days we are heading off around the world for two months. This means we have to plan how to manage our health and hearing needs well in advance.
