Hearing Device Innovation – The Lyric Hearing Aid
There’s an epidemic that’s on the rise. No, we’re not talking about hearing loss. We’re talking about something that’s even more crippling known as hearing loss stigma. You see, it’s a well-known fact that 38 million Americans suffers from hearing loss that is classified as disabling. But beyond these numbers, there are an estimated 15 million citizens that avoid seeking help for their hearing impairment! If that’s not shocking enough, consider that the average person waits approximately 7 years before searching for hearing help.
So, why not just seek the care that they require? To begin with, some hearing loss procedures, like cochlear implants, require surgery, which can be off-putting for many. Others worry that hearing devices are too high-maintenance, requiring extra steps in the rain or at bedtime, amongst other cases. Not to mention, many people fear that wearing a hearing aid isn’t visually appealing and will lead to awkward stares. As a result, they simply choose to ignore their impairment. But now, they won’t have to, thanks to an innovative new hearing device.
Hearing loss stigma…meet the Lyric hearing aid! Built by a team of board certified audiologists, physicians and engineers, the Lyric focuses on 3 simple philosophies to match its simple design.
