How Cognitive Function is vital to the field of Audiology

On 29, Aug 2017 | In News | By Cubex Concierge

We are excited to share our recent interview with The Marylebone Journal. Deputy Editor, Viel Richardson caught up with Cubex Audiologist, Jerusha Shulberg to talk about cognitive function and the reasons why it is vital to understand its role in audiology especially when treating hearing loss.

As there is currently no way to completely restore a persons hearing when they experience a sensory neural hearing loss, hearing technology is used as a means to deliver sound to the brain, but sometimes, patients may still find it difficult to navigate their auditory world and to communicate with ease. This is where understanding the cognitive component becomes crucial.

As Cubex Audiologists, we are mindful that in order for us to be able help individuals make positive lifestyle changes we need to build a cognitive reserve, improve hearing and strengthen the ability to communicate.

It is vital to understand not simply what you are hearing, but also how well you process the complex information our brain receives from our surroundings and so we have developed a relaxed and innovative way to truly understand a persons hearing ability and unique cognitive skill sets. This approach allows us to provide our patients with a real awareness of their current state of living and enables us to provide the best possible support and the greatest improvement in their communication skills.

Pulsatile tinnitus: causes and treatments

On 21, Feb 2017 | In Tinnitus | By Rosie Williams

What is pulsatile tinnitus?

Tinnitus is a perception of sounds that is generated by the nervous system of the ear and brain in the absence of any external sound source. It is usually heard only by the individual experiencing tinnitus and is commonly described as a ringing in the ear, buzzing or humming. On the other hand, Pulsatile tinnitus is often described as a thumping or whooshing sound that has a like a rhythmic pulsing that is often in time with the person’s heartbeat. This is also referred to as vascular tinnitus as in many cases the cause is related to changes in blood flow.

Could wireless earphones change the way people feel about hearing aids?

On 11, Jan 2017 | In Arts & Lifestyle | By Jerusha Shulberg

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?

‘Smart’ hearing aid technology – a thing of the future?

On 07, Dec 2016 | In Hearing Technology | By Jerusha Shulberg

Apple’s latest change to remove the headphone jack and replace the traditional plug-in ear phones with wireless AirPods has sparked some considerable conversation. AirPods could change the way we use headphones with its instant ability to connect to your iPhone as soon as it is turned on, to adjusting the volume of playback music, changing a song, getting directions by activating Siri or making a call wirelessly. We have been using this type of advanced wireless technology to make life easier for people with hearing loss for some time! Could forward-thinking companies like Apple be making connected hearing devices the ‘thing’ to wear?

Study: Hearing gets more tiring for the brain as we age

On 28, Oct 2016 | In Professional News | By Rosie Williams

With support from Sonova, a recent and globally unique study by the University of Zurich has been looking at the consequences of age-related hearing loss in the brain. The study has allowed neuropsychologists to visually map and measure the consequences of age-related hearing loss in the brain.

The results show that although the ageing brain requires intensive training in order to regain a better understanding of speech when using hearing instruments, an ageing brain can still relearn how to process speech. This supports the belief that hearing does not just take place in the ear, but also as a cognitive process in the brain.

BRINOS – Help us achieve better hearing health in Nepal

On 28, Oct 2016 | In News | By Rosie Williams

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.
