Can you imagine not being able to hear for half a century, then suddenly being able to hear the world around you?
With hearing technology improving, this scenario is happening more often. Recently a father was able to hear his daughter sing for the first time. In a beautiful moment caught on video, she sings “Daddy Please Come Home for Christmas” to her father. “It’s amazing, I had goose bumps all over me. I’m very proud of my daughter,” he said. It’s very touching to see, and it’s all made possible with one little piece of technology.
The device the father has around his neck in the video is the Bluetooth receiver. This technology has revolutionized hearing instruments. The microphones can be applied to a speaker’s (or singer’s, in this case) lapel, and our devices can be placed on a table during dinner or a meeting. Our devices function very similarly, using Bluetooth technology to sync up with a user’s hearing device. Suddenly, a person who was inaudible at the other end of the table is crystal clear.
Just as our audiologists often say, we’re not providing people with hearing devices, we’re impacting lives. If you’re interested in learning more about this technology, visit an Avada office near you.
It could change your life.
