Hearing Aid Trial & Fitting


A hearing aid is a small electronic device that you wear in or behind your ear. It makes some sounds louder so that a person with hearing loss can listen, communicate, and participate more fully in daily activities. A hearing aid can help people hear more in both quiet and noisy situations. However, only about one out of five people who would benefit from a hearing aid actually uses one.

A hearing aid has three basic parts: a microphone, amplifier, and speaker. The hearing aid receives sound through a microphone, which converts the sound waves to electrical signals and sends them to an amplifier. The amplifier increases the power of the signals and then sends them to the ear through a speaker. Hearing aids are primarily useful in improving the hearing and speech comprehension of people who have hearing loss that results from damage to the small sensory cells in the inner ear, called hair cells. This type of hearing loss is called sensorineural hearing loss. The damage can occur as a result of disease, aging, or injury from noise or certain medicines.

A hearing aid magnifies sound vibrations entering the ear. Surviving hair cells detect the larger vibrations and convert them into neural signals that are passed along to the brain. The greater the damage to a person’s hair cells, the more severe the hearing loss, and the greater the hearing aid amplification needed to make up the difference. However, there are practical limits to the amount of amplification a hearing aid can provide. In addition, if the inner ear is too damaged, even large vibrations will not be converted into neural signals. In this situation, a hearing aid would be ineffective.

Hearing Aid Repair & Analysis

Electro acoustic analysis of hearing aids is carried out prior to dispensing and is also done following hearing aid repairs. Servicing of hearing aids is also available.


Hearing Aid Trial & Fitting


To get an individually fitted hearing aid, it is necessary to make a casting of the ear canal to ensure that the ear mould fits perfectly. No two ears are alike and especially children need to have new ear moulds made regularly as their ears grow and mature.

While the technology is advancing, styling and design is deemed to be of great importance, as well. The hearing aids must look attractive and be as small and unobtrusive or stylish as possible. Colour choices and different shapes are now available to suit your personal style. To get the best possible hearing aid for you it is essential that you seek the professional help and advice of a hearing aid dispenser. QISH provides the best in the market available.

Counseling

A case that who is successfully fitted with a hearing aid is later counseled regarding care and maintenance of the hearing aid, use of residual hearing and amplification and effective use of alternate modes
