Hearing Aid Accessories
There are numerous accessories and assistive listening devices available at the clinic. We are available to advise you if you have specific needs. The following are examples.
Remote controls for those who prefer to be able to hand-control their hearing aids by changing volume and clarity along with accessing different manual programs. These can be useful for those with manual dexterity difficulties. They can also be used for some automatic hearing aids where there are no volume controls or program buttons on the aids.
