Researchers from the Department of Neurology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, have identified a gene called ‘Period 1’ that determines how easy it is for somebody to wake up in the mornings.

The gene varies in night and morning people and belongs to a number of genes that are responsible for all biological clocks and the rhythms of physiological changes in organisms.
People with hearing loss may find it additionally difficult to get up in the morning if they can’t hear their alarm clock and don’t want to sleep with their hearing aid in.

To help, Hidden Hearing stocks a range of amplified alarm clocks that are specifically designed for people with hearing loss and have a louder alarm as well as a shaker that can be placed under the pillow to add to its ability to stir someone. The alarm clocks range from £19.99 to £44.99 and come in a range of styles and designs.

A spokesperson for Hidden Hearing said:

“For people with hearing loss, it can be especially hard to get up in the morning if they can’t hear their alarm. Our alarm clocks come with a range of features that increase the ability to detect it, thanks to the added shaker and flashing light.”

With more than 40 years’ experience in treating hearing loss, Hidden Hearing is entrusted with the care of more than 100,000 people each year. The firm has 84 hearing centres across the UK, all catering for a range of needs and budgets.
