At Audiological Consultants, we advocate the use of hearing aids as treatment for hearing loss that is not medically reversible.  However, people with such hearing loss sometimes are in need of additional help in specific listening situations, such as worship services, meetings, movie theatres and playhouses.  Hearing assistive technology devices can provide this help.  All of our offices stock a wide variety of assistive devices such as those shown below, including TV listening systems, telephones, telephone amplifiers, smoke alarms and alerting devices.  Our audiologists can demonstrate these and other devices and help you select the most suitable device for your particular hearing loss needs.
Below is a small sample of available hearing assistive technology devices — contact us for more information!
