Hearing Aid Fitting
One of the most common health conditions - experienced by many as they age - is hearing loss. While hearing aids do not restore normal hearing, they do help people regain much of their lost hearing, allow for improved communication with others, and enable continued interaction in family and community. How hearing aids work: Sound enters through a microphone, is processed and amplified, then delivered to a receiver (loudspeaker), sending the output to the ear canal of the user.
