Why would children need our range of hearing aid accessories?
Hearing loss in children is more common than you would expect. Hearing loss can be sudden in some cases, but more often it happens gradually. As hearing loss occurs, your child can benefit from our carefully selected range of hearing aid care products.
Reasons your child may develop hearing loss:
– A perforated eardrum.
– Otosclerosis or Meniere’s diseases. Which are progressive infections like meningitis, measles, mumps or whooping cough.
– Taking medications linked to hearing loss (see above).
– A serious head injury.
– Exposure to loud noise, causing noise-induced hearing loss.
– Untreated or frequent ear infections.
– Exposure to secondhand smoke.
What types of hearing aids can I get for my children?
There are many different types of hearing aids you can get for your child, including:
– Behind-the-ear hearing aids (the most common type). These are hearing aids that go around the top and back of the ear.
– In-the-ear hearing aids. Small hearing aids that fit in the opening of the ear.
– In-the-canal hearing aids. Very small hearing aids that fit a bit further into the opening of the ear, so they’re just visible.
Maintaining a child’s hearing aids:
It is very important to look after you child’s hearing aids and keep them well-maintained. It is also critical to keep your child’s earmould clean and free from wax.
Ear-moulds should be cleaned at least once a week. check out our specialist hearing aid cleaning products on our hearing aid maintenance category.
