About Hearing Loss-Hearing for Life

WHO put forward the concept of "hearing for life" on World Hearing Day in 2020 and the importance of "hearing care for ALL" in 2021. The number of hearing loss population worldwide is on the rise. For the elderly, hearing loss is the most common chronic illness of depression. However, most people still have stereotypes and prejudices about hearing aid. They think that it is a sign of aging and is labeled as a physical defect.
Glasses were originally just a tool to correct people’s vision; however, they become a sign of fashion today. It is hoped to redefine the appearance of hearing aid and subvert people’s perception on it.
