Today, The Senior List continues our focus on the hearing aid market in an effort to inform our readers, and assist the millions of folks out there with hearing loss. Odd are each and every one of you reading this post knows someone who wears a hearing aid, OR knows someone suffering from hearing loss. In the U.S. alone, 37 million people suffer from hearing loss, and that number is growing exponentially. One of the most important aspects of maintaining your hearing aid (for optimal performance) is regular cleaning. It’s important for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is the amount of debris that collects in and around your device such as ear wax, dirt, and the like.
Here’s a nice tutorial we found from Ascent Hearing Care in the UK (website temporarily unavailable). Ascent Hearing Care is on Twitter (@AscentHearing). In the video, a representative from Ascent Hearing discusses how to clean a hearing aid. They describe just HOW to care for your hearing device, and WHY you should clean your hearing aid for “securing optimum performance”.
