Here’s a story of how today’s digital technology helps patients to find lost hearing aids. This patient reports…
He was walking along a sidewalk close to his home. A bee flew between his glasses and his eyes. He quickly pulled the glasses off to get rid of the bee. Unfortunately, at the same time his hearing aid flew off from the top of his ear and went into some heavy weeds, nowhere to be found.
He went home to get his iPod touch and set it to “find hearing aids”, and then returned to the place he lost the hearing aid. As he walked in the vicinity of where it was lost, he could see on his iPod touch app screen the “signal getting stronger and stronger”. Low and behold, he then reached down into the weeds and found his hearing aid. He was SOOOOO HAPPY!!!
This was a great story of today’s advancements in Resound LiNX2 digital hearing aid technology, and how patients can prevent their hearing aids from being lost.
