Unitron has introduced a new rechargeable hearing aid option with the new Tempus platform. In typical Unitron style though, they have done it their own way, not just is it not an integrated option, but it is also backward compatible!
Already have a set of Moxi Fits, just buy the kit and make them rechargeable! It's typical of Unitron to do something like this, it really is an example of their user focused approach.

I have seen a few people with dry itchy ears lately, sometimes life can be like that. It's like buses, you don't see one for ages and then the next thing you are falling over them. The question arises consistently, are my hearing aids making my ears itchy? The answer isn't usually a simple yes. More often than not it is a yes, no maybe? Let me explain. http://ow.ly/Lf9j3097tka

I read a good article today by Geoffrey A. Fowler on the Wall Street Journal. He was talking about modern TVs and their rubbish audio. In essence he said that if you can't hear the TV, the fault may not be your ears, it could be a combination of bad speakers and bad sound balancing on TV shows. He also made some suggestions for making the Audio better which included some after market add ons. It got me thinking though, sometimes even if your hearing is at fault, it might not be time for hearing aids, let me explain.

Last year we released a book called The Little Book of Hearing Aids which was well received. I was careful last year just to focus on hearing aids in a general manner because I thought that type of information was ideal to give a high level understanding. I got some great feedback of buyers asking for more info and suggesting topics. So I have updated the book for 2017.

Rechargeable hearing aids were most definitely one of the big product hits of 2016. It quickly became obvious that the breakthrough provided by Lithium-ion was probably going to ensure that every hearing aid brand was going to move forward with the an offering. I said then that I believed that every manufacturer would be looking at this and that I though ITEs (in-the-ear custom devices) would be the real battle ground. It certainly seems that will be the case, let's take a look at what is happening in 2017 with rechargeable hearing aids.

In this our second guest post in as many weeks Andrew Lekashman of ClearValue discusses words that can be difficult to understand when someone has a hearing loss and replacement words that can be used instead to give a person with hearing loss a better opportunity to understand. It's a great article and worthwhile reading, in fact I would like to thank him, because it is something that I will refer my Patients to from now on. Without further adieu, I will hand you over the Andrew.
