A 10-Point Plan for Apps (Without Being Overwhelmed)
A Look At Three Hearing Aid Apps That Are Helping People.
National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders recently released information that shows one in every eight people in the US have reported loss of hearing in both or one ear.
We can now easily monitor our medical and emotional health status by using new technology.
Whether it is your first time to wear hearing aid or you have done it before, using hearing aid apps can improve your safety and comfort. Here is a list of some of the best hearing aid apps that are available.
Before you rush into Hearplex to conduct your research, it is better if you experimented on yourself to determine the level of your hearing.
You can use uHear to know where the problem lies and you will get the results in as little as five minutes. There are three ways in which you can carry out this test;
Hearing sensitivity- which determines the normal range of hearing
Speech in noise- helpful to know the speech in noisy place.
Questionnaire- used to identify hearing in usual situations.
Even though this test is not a replacement for the feedback that you receive from the audiologist, it is a great place to start. This test can also be used to determine if there is any potential risk to your hearing.
SOUND ALERT (ANDROID AND IOS)
This application gives you an opportunity of turning your smartphone into a revolutionary alert device. With Sound Alert, you get an opportunity of converting any environmental sound into a notification. You can now monitor nearly anything from smoke alarms, knock on your door, and delivery.
With Sound Alert, you can decide to use flashing light or vibration as a mode of notification. Other technologies, such as the company’s microphone or the Pebble watch can be used with this application.
The application costs $69 but given the comfort and the features it offers, it is a bargain for people with busy schedules.
MYHEARING (ANDROID AND IOS)
Audiologists and their patients have considered this application to be the best in the industry.
This app is used by audiologists to check the progress of their clients and check in with them. The app gives audiologists an opportunity of adjusting their patients’ hearing and also send and receive texts.
The encryption of the app lets you keep your personal information safe and secure. It is very user-friendly and has learning modules and tutorials to help you out.
With this technology, patients can schedule appointments and follow-ups with their doctors.
It doesn’t matter which hearing aids you are using, if you use these apps, your hearing care will be perfect.
