Hearing-Aid / Hearing-Aid


The number of elderly people with hearing impairment who use hearing aids to aid their hearing and communication is increasing, but there is a reluctance to wear hearing aids because of their appearance. They believe that wearing a hearing aid will make others think that they are disabled, which can lead to low self-esteem and even an aversion to wearing hearing aids. This is why it is important to start by changing the appearance of hearing aids, redesigning them and adding features and charging boxes that are easy to use for older people, so that they are more convenient and willing to wear them.
