Hearing loss affects one in six Australians, from newborn babies to the elderly – Hearing Awareness Week is an opportunity to focus on the needs of the one in six people who are Deaf or hearing impaired or have a chronic ear disorder. It is also an opportunity to explain to all Australians the risks associated with long-term exposure to excessive noise, often in the workplace
Innovation, Technology and Digital Hearing Aids – As technology advances, many people with hearing loss benefit from hearing aids and cochlear implants. These innovations have made a positive difference in the way that people with hearing loss communicate.
