Randy Wohlers, founder of the online hearing device store MyHearPod.com, offers a new 100% digital hearing aid that does not require a prescription.
(PRWEB) June 2, 2009 -- For many people, hearing loss is a bothersome problem in certain situations, but not often enough to prompt them to visit a doctor. An estimated 10% of Americans suffer from hearing loss to some degree, but many only notice the problem in specific situations.
MyHearPod.com offers the HearPal digital hearing aid for this reason alone. The HearPal is an occasional use hearing device that does not require a doctor's prescription, and is affordable when compared to the price of traditional hearing aids from a doctor's office.
While hearing aids can cost between $4,000 and $8,000 from a doctor's office, the HearPal is offered at a reasonable $279.
This 100% digital hearing device is manufactured under the guidelines and standards of the FDA, and is appropriate for people who don't need a prescription hearing aid but find themselves in situations where they need a boost in hearing.
"Even though HearPal doesn't require a prescription, we still advise everyone to see their doctor and rule out any medical condition that could be causing a hearing loss," said Wohlers regarding the HearPal.
For many people, products like the HearPal can be the solution they've been looking for - an "as needed" hearing device to help them exactly when they need it.
