Does your hearing aid need to be reprogrammed, or does it need to be repaired?
In this video, I share a story of a patients hearing aids that she thinks are in need of reprogramming. Testing revealed that the hearing aids were in-fact not functioning properly and were in need of repair.
Ways to prevent Hearing Aid Repairs:
1. Seeing your Audiologist regularly – Audiologists can do more detailed maintenance on your devices to prevent issues from arising.
2. Home Preventative Maintenance – Cleaning your own hearing aids regularly is essential to proper hearing aid function.
3. Use a Dry and Store Kit – If you are not using a hearing aid dryer, your hearing aid will lose sound quality and shorten it’s usable life. I recommend the Zephyr or the Westone Hearing Aid Saver.
