Noise can affect our auditory health From a medical point of view, noise is any sound that can be harmful to health or seriously interfere in an activity. Both prolonged exposure to noise and a very loud, brief noise (for example, an explosion) can lead to hearing loss.
The importance of hearing
Hearing is the sense that helps us to develop as social beings and to communicate. Thanks to hearing, beginning when we are small, we can distinguish the voices of our family members and friends. We know where sounds come from, we identify animals, we interact and we learn to speak. As such, hearing loss affects our quality of life, even for the most everyday gestures.
What can we do if we don’t hear the doorbell, or the telephone? How will we communicate if we can’t hear others? Hearing loss is called presbycusis, and it is a gradual process that affects everyone. At first, it is imperceptible. This means it is essential to periodically test your hearing after a certain age, or if you see any suspicious symptoms.
Solutions, latest technologies
Hearing aids are the best solution in most cases for hearing loss, since they selectively amplify sound at the most-needed frequencies. One of these hearing aids is one of the latest on the market, Cellion. Cellion, the first hearing aid in the world with a rechargeable lithium ion battery and wireless inductive technology. Created by Sivantos, a worldwide leader with the greatest experience in the rechargeable hearing aid industry, the device provides users with unlimited wireless transmission for up to two days with just one charge. In order to be as comfortable as possible for the user, the device’s charge unit has a micro USB interface so that the hearing aids can be charged with any USB-compatible power source. Since the hearing aid battery is entirely built-in and sealed, the user does not have to handle the battery holder. This means that the operational system is ecological, since it saves hundreds of disposable batteries during the hearing aid’s life cycle. Moreover, its advanced SpeechMaster features constantly controls what is being listened to, automatically focusing on conversation and reducing undesired background noises and voices
