Flex trial by Unitron

FlexTrial from Unitron is an amazing piece of technology now available at CMD Hearingcare in Leeds and Yarm areas. The system allows people with hearing loss to experience wearing hearing aids before making the decision to purchase.

Hearing aids are available in many different configurations, it is important to match the features and technology within the hearing aids to the lifestyle of the person who will be wearing them. Through a discussion of your lifestyle we would aim to find a hearing aid that matches your needs. Now however, the FlexTrial system gives us a much more precise and individualised method of finding the right match for your hearing needs.

When using the  FlexTrial system the wearer is able to hear how the hearing aids sound and see the benefit they get, in addition the devices gather information about the sort of situations the wearer finds themselves in and the features and technology that would be beneficial. Following the trial period we can review the information stored in the hearing aids and therefore make an informed choice regarding the type of aids that would be most beneficial.

The FlexTrial is a fantastic opportunity to take the guess work out of getting hearing aids for the first time. They allow you to experience using hearing aids and then make a truly individualised and informed choice about what will be beneficial for you.

Unitron has created a great video that shows the FlexTrial system in action and their benefits.

Hearing aid fitting – CMD Hearing Care

Research has shown that patient benefit is greatest when the sound from a hearing aid is accurately matched to their hearing loss, at CMD Hearing Care I take care to ensure an excellent match is achieved.

In order to achieve the most accurate fit possible I use specialised equipment to record the sound from the hearing aids whilst they are in the wearers’ ears. I can then adjust the sound from the aids to customise the sound for my patient. By personalising every step of the process from hearing aid selection to fitting and fine tuning I aim to provide the best possible experience and outcome.
