Many of the patients we see have difficulty hearing on the telephone.
Current technology has made hearing on the telephone easier than ever. Dr. Whitaker recently met with a patient who has had a hearing loss most of her life as the result of a childhood illness.
Her hearing loss is severe to profound in nature, making communication on the telephone almost impossible. Several months ago, she was fitted with a device called the Phone Clip Plus.
A New Type of Device
This device allows her to hear phone conversations through her hearing aids! She hears the phone in both ears, the sound is amplified according to her hearing loss, and she is hands-free.
After her recent follow-up visit, she reported that the Phone Clip Plus is “wonderful!” “I couldn’t live without it,” she said.
In addition to devices like the Phone Clip Plus, there are other solutions to hearing better on the telephone. One other example is the Caption Call telephone.
This is a landline telephone with a large screen that is capable of captioning a conversation in real-time. In other words, patients with a hearing loss are able to read the phone conversation as it takes place.
This phone is typically subsidized by the government and, with approval from your audiologist, can often be obtained at little to no cost.
