Unexpected Benefits of Rechargeable Hearing AidsApr 07, 2017
Of course hearing aids with rechargeable batteries eliminate the ongoing cost and hassle of buying new batteries. But the benefits of rechargeable hearing aids go much further than that.
Rick* came into the office a few months ago. He has known for many years that he needed hearing aids, but his main concern was dexterity issues. Although he is relatively young, he has poor fine motor skills and struggles with manipulation of small objects.
Unable To Change Batteries
Because he has family members and friends who wear hearing aids, he knew that the batteries are small and need to be changed around once a week. For years and years he delayed getting hearing aids because he knew he wouldn’t be able to change the batteries, and didn’t want to have to rely on someone else to help him with it.
Recharging is Easy
When Rick heard of rechargeable hearing aid options he was very interested. After one month of wearing the hearing aids, he has had great success with not only the hearing aspect, but with the general day-to-day usage. He doesn’t need to open or close a battery compartment and never needs to place a battery inside of the instruments. In order to recharge the devices, he sets both instruments in a large rechargeable base each night and sees a flashing green light to ensure he placed them properly. The light turns solid green once they are fully charged and ready for use.
Great Solution For People With Poor Vision
Rechargeable hearing aids are a great option for not only those with dexterity and tactile limitations, but also for those who have poor or reduced visual abilities. Rechargeable hearing aids are becoming widely available and will allow many people to have more autonomy and ease with the use and care of their hearing aids.
