Hearing aids can make a dramatic difference for people with hearing loss and can make life easier – especially in the workplace.
(PRWEB UK) 28 June 2013
Nine out of ten hearing aid users have said that their hearing aids are useful in the workplace, according to figures published in the Hearing Review as part of EuroTrak and JapanTrak research.
Surveys were conducted in seven countries among people with hearing loss, who were asked:
“How useful are your hearing aids in the workplace?” Sixty per cent said that they found hearing aids to be of significant use, while thirty per cent found hearing aids to be of some use.
Around fifty per cent of those who used hearing aids agreed to some extent that people with untreated hearing loss tended to have a reduced chance of promotion and did not get the jobs they deserved.
Surveys were carried out in Italy, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland, Norway and Japan.
A spokesperson from Hidden Hearing said:
“Hearing aids can make a dramatic difference for people with hearing loss and can make life easier – especially in the workplace. The ability to follow conversations and discussions is vital in a working environment and not seeking treatment for hearing loss can hinder this. Booking a free hearing test at one of our hearing centres will not only assess your hearing but also highlight the options available. Technology has meant that hearing aids are smaller and more discreet than ever.”
