According to an international study in the Lancet, one in three cases of dementia could be prevented if more people looked after their brain health throughout life.
It is currently estimated that 47 million people are living with Dementia at the moment. By 2050, This number could reach 131 million people globally.
The study explores the lifestyle factors that play a major role in reducing the risk of dementia and examines the benefits of building a “cognitive reserve”, which means strengthening the brain’s networks so it can continue to function in later life despite damage.

Hearing aid technology has been researched and developed for over a hundred years. Throughout this time, hearing aid styles have gradually grown smaller, slimmer and less noticeable due primarily to the stigma associated with reduced hearing ability and the demand from those experiencing hearing loss. However, recently there has been an increase in demand for hearing aid accessories and jewelry that help make a hearing loss, which is often concealed, more visible and worth flaunting.
Apple’s latest change to remove the headphone jack and replace the traditional plug-in ear phones with wireless AirPods has sparked some conversation. The interesting thing for us is the potential to change the way of thinking in the hearing industry due to this technology shift. The hearing industry have been using this type of technology in their hearing aids for a long time! Could forward-thinking companies like Apple be making connected hearing devices the thing to wear?

Since 2001, Cubex has worked with the Britain Nepal Otology Service (BRINOS) to help thousands of Nepali’s achieve better ear and hearing health and life quality. Charitable donations fund the vital manpower and equipment needed to sustain the Primary Ear Care and Hearing Care Programme in Nepal. In addition, funding is required in order to purchase and maintain the specialised equipment needed to undertake middle ear microsurgery. The recent main BRINOS funding drive has been to build the new Ear Care Centre at Nepalgunj which was finished and operational since October 2015. In March this year, the first BRINOS camp was held – with 184 operations in 11 days drawing patients from 21 of the 25 districts of the two western regions of Nepal! A big thank you to all supporters who helped to make this possible.
However, the work doesn’t stop there – we want to help to reach out beyond the 4 districts currently served by BRINOS and the Hearing Care Programme. This means being able to train more Community Ear Assistants and establish them in more districts.
