Most devices that fit behind the ear have a couple, or more, microphones on the device facing behind the ear which gather sounds around the wearer and process that information before amplifying it into the receiver which is fit into the ear canal. Most of the devices process this information to also help
It is Summer now and time for some water-based activities! With options like a lazy float down the Madison on a warm, sunny day, rafting the Yellowstone, or wakeboarding on Flathead Lake, there are countless aquatic pursuits with which to fill one’s free time. While enjoying a peaceful dip, or adrenaline filled rush, it is important to remember that these environments do pose new challenges for hearing device care. Always be prepared and have a plan to protect these important medical instruments while creating amazing memories on the high seas (or soothing river). Hearing devices are NOT WATERPROOF. It is

Dementia is one of those words that at once pulls the strings of one’s heart while also striking fear in the back of one’s mind. The sadness of a loved one unable to always remember a name and the concern that that will one day be you are feelings that many have faced, and do face, daily. Around 50 million people around the world currently have dementia, and that figure is likely to triple in just 30 years’ time. 1 Unfortunately, there is very little that can be done for dementia and Alzheimer’s once the cognitive loss has set in.
