Are you buying a hearing aid? Getting a hearing aid device is a process. First, you have to schedule an appointment with your hearing aid specialist. Then a series of tests will be done to analyze your hearing profile. The hearing aid professional will decide on the right device for you after looking into your hearing profile, finally comes the fitting procedure which is as pivotal as a hearing test where the professional ensures the device is comfortable and wearable.
Why we must have a fitting appointment?
Hearing is a very personal aspect. The fitting process is primary and most important to make sure that your hearing aids are amplifying the sounds exactly the way you need them. It also ensures what volume might be good for the listener or is it too loud or soft for the wearer.
The user must have a great relationship with the device to wear and care for it. So the main goal of the fitting appointment is to ensure the comfortability of the device in your environment. Your hearing aids should be comfortable to wear. That means the hearing aid device itself is comfortable to wear and the sound it delivers is comfortable to your ears.
What happens in a fitting appointment?
The fitting appointment starts with a quick look into the ear and removal of excess earwax as it affects the device from functioning properly in your ears. A fine tube goes into your ear canal and the specialist plays different tunes with your essential feedback. This part plays an important role as it helps with fine-tuning the device to a comfortable level of volume.
After fitting and fine-tuning the audiologist will help you in the usage of a hearing aid device like switching the device on and off and removing the device easily until you are comfortably adapted to the device.
Regularize the appointment until you are comfortable and confident with device usage and functioning. Your brain will take time to adapt to the environments you work in, give it time and make sure you clean your ears and clean the device when using it. Your audiologist helps you through the instructions and enough caring tips to take care of your device and hearing.
