Covid-19 and the Remote Audiology

The pandemic has brought unique challenges to all healthcare sectors and audiology is no different. To those without hearing loss it may seem to lack importance but for the hearing impaired the hearing services are more crucial than ever. Telephone calls have become a necessity, TV crucial to get through the day and news broadcasts crucial. With social distancing we’re having to use the excellent features which previously have been a luxury more than a necessity.

Remote audiology allows us as clinicians to fine tune and make adjustments to your hearing aids from our computers from our office while you remain in the comfort of your own home. Most major hearing aid manufacturers provide this service on their newer models of hearing aids, here are a few examples:
