We will advise you on the optimal solution for your individual hearing loss.
At the hearLIFE Clinic we guide every person through the journey to hearing restoration with both dignity and respect. We take the time to examine your medical history thoroughly and to perform all necessary tests to find an optimal solution for your hearing problem.
In some cases, especially those that involve the middle ear (such as fluid in the middle ear or otosclerosis), a medical solution (medicinal or surgical) may be offered. Our hearing specialists will evaluate the hearing both pre- and post-intervention, to help the doctor decide both the necessary treatments and their efficacy.
Hearing aids are devices designed to aid your hearing by amplifying the sound. It is typically used by individuals who have mild to moderate hearing loss, but who are still capable of processing at least some natural sound.
Following necessary hearing tests and assessment, our experienced audiologists will assist you in the process of selecting and fitting your hearing aid according to the hearing evaluation and your hearing specific needs. Furthermore, your hearing performance with the new device will be monitored closely after fitting to ensure having the best results.
That is an excellent option for people with conductive hearing loss who are unsuitable for, or not wishing to undergo, bone conduction implant surgery.
Cochlear implants are designed for individuals with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss, who receive little or no benefit from hearing aids. They can be used effectively by both children and adults who suffer from hearing loss prior to or after acquiring speech and language.
This technology benefits individuals with “partial deafness”, which is defined as a mild to moderate hearing loss in the low frequencies that increases to a severe to profound hearing loss in the higher frequencies.
Electrical Acoustic Stimulation uses the same electrical stimulation technology of cochlear implants, and acoustic stimulation using traditional amplification (similar to hearing aids) to make use of the residual hearing in the same ear.
Middle Ear Implants have been designed to suit individuals who suffer from sensorineural or conductive and mixed hearing losses, who can’t benefit from or dissatisfied with hearing aids.
Bone Conduction implants – which are a semi-implantable hearing system, in which the implant is positioned completely under the skin – are an ideal solution for individuals with conductive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss or single-sided deafness.
With conductive or mixed hearing loss in particular, sound cannot take the natural path through the outer and middle ear to the inner ear. Using the Bone Conduction Implant, the sound waves will be transmitted via bone conduction directly to the inner ear, where they are processed as natural sound.
