Oticon and the Eriksholm Research Centre have been able to measure the level of stress someone experiences when hearing in noisy environments using Pupillometry. Listening in a noisy room can be difficult for everyone and a bigger problem for those with hearing loss. The ability to measure cognitive load in different environments could improve the lives of millions of people with hearing loss.
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?
Open yourself up to a world of possibilities on the IFTTT network with the new Oticon Opn™
Available for personalisation at Cubex now!
New treatment technology in Oticon Opn™ represents a paradigm shift in hearing care and is the worlds first hearing aid with two wireless communication systems providing the fastest and most precise audiological performance and enabling easy connectivity to audio devices and the internet.
The Eriksholm Research Centre have shared this short but interesting video featuring Professor Hélène Amieva, a leading researcher in the Neuropsychology and Epidemiology of Aging at the University of Bordeaux, France, who discusses her 25 year study that shows that hearing aids reduce the risk of cognitive decline in older adults. It is well documented that untreated hearing conditions can lead to an increase in anxiety, stress, depression, poorer communication and eventual isolation. Hearing aids used as part of a individualised treatment plan can help to manage the negative effects of hearing loss and reduce accelerated cognitive decline!
With Oticon’s launch of Oticon Opn™, hearing aid treatment technology has taken a giant leap forward in favour of the end‐user.
Traditionally hearing aid technologies close down environmental sounds using tunnel directionality. Speech coming from the front is clear, while the rest of the sound environment is suppressed, limiting the brain of the context needed to make sense of sound.
With new, ground breaking technology from Oticon, the Oticon Opn™ quickly and precisely analyses the soundscape and differentiates between environmental and foreground sounds. Even in complex listening environments, Otion Opn™ can open up and balance individual sounds allowing environmental noise to be accessible but not disruptive, empowering the brain to choose which sound to focus on. Directionality as we know it, has become a thing of the past.
Most people with severe-to-profound hearing loss use the same hearing aids for many years. Hearing aids become your everyday companions, so it’s easy to understand why. But technology advances quickly and it is worthwhile keeping up with these changes: they can offer new benefits and major improvements to your hearing.
So why not take the leap and try new Oticon Dynamo? With Oticon’s BrainHearing™ technology, we can help ease your transition to a new and richer sound experience.
SOUND IS ONE THING. MAKING SENSE IS EVERYTHING.
