Technology is making strides in helping hearing loss sufferers better deal with their condition. As we move ahead in a world, where new inventions are created to facilitate our lives, many units such as hearing aids improve every year. But that’s not all; there are now iPhones, iPods and iPads where you can download applications not only for entertainment but also for health purposes.

If you are the owner of any of these products, you can download the following applications:

EarTrumpet by Praxis BioSciences, LLC: according to the itunes website “EarTrumpet is a hearing application suite that provides hearing testing and hearing enhancement tools. The hearing enhancer amplifies and adjusts sound to discretely improve hearing via the earphones attached to an iPhone, iPod, or iPad.” Price: $3.99

Tooloud? by RGB-Studio: This simple application, helps you determine whether or not the place where you are is too loud, and may be damaging your hearing. Price: Free

TapToTalk By Assistyx LLC: A free application that helps children who suffer from hearing loss improve their communication skills.

dB Volume Meter By Darren Gates: This is another application that measures the volume in your environment. This can serve as a tool to prevent noise-induced hearing loss.

These applications can be used to help you better deal with your hearing health condition, or help prevent further damage, but it does not replace the visit to an audiologist and the usage of a personalized hearing aid.
