Have hearing aids been recommended for your hearing loss? Have you finally made a decision to pursue improved communication? There are so many choices from which to choose, it can be quite overwhelming.
Most hearing aid manufacturers make demo hearing aids available to audiologists to allow the patient to experience the benefits of amplification prior to a purchase. Unfortunately, most hearing aid manufacturers will only provide demo hearing aids in the premium products. While this is very helpful to most people pursuing amplification, the patient is unable to try the low or mid-level technology without proceeding with the purchase of hearing aids.
There is a 30-day trial period on all hearing aids no matter the make, model or where you purchase them. So should you proceed with low or mid-level technology and are dissatisfied for any reason, they can be exchanged or returned.
There are many tools to help guide audiologists in determining the most appropriate hearing aid for people with hearing loss and communication difficulties. The most convincing and powerful tool is to experience amplification in your own environment and experience the benefits first hand.
Unitron, a small Canadian-based, hearing aid manufacturer, has developed a program to address this issue called Flex-Trial. The Flex-Trial program allows the audiologist to program the demonstration hearing aids to any level of technology from the economy to premium. This allows the patient to make a more informed decision about the value they are receiving from the hearing aids.
There are 5 technology levels from which to select. Most people try 2 technology levels to determine which best suits their personal sound environment. Once the most appropriate level of technology is chosen, the patient can proceed with a purchase of hearing aids with confidence in the ability of the hearing aid to significantly improve their lives.
