How America’s Change-Leading Generation is Redesigning Hearing Healthcare
Date:8/8/2014

Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 08, 2014

Recently, The Center for Audiology has noticed a trend among their patients. Baby boomers have been getting their hearing tested more and more, and finding that today’s hearing aids are effective and useful for their everyday lives.

America's baby boomers first came on the scene in 1946 and they've been turning the world on its head ever since. Known as the country's greatest generation for leading change, baby boomers make up roughly 26 percent of the United States' total population - at about 78 million people. Over the years, they've reinvented almost everything about the way America lives - from the music Americans listen to, the cars they drive and the technology they rely upon, to the way they age.

The oldest baby boomers have already begun crossing the threshold into their golden years - and as expected, they're redesigning what's on the other side. Never known as an understated generation, baby boomers have already made it clear that they won't be fading quietly into retirement. On the contrary, they're all about staying active and engaged. Chronologically they may be aging, but their spirits aren't. So whether it's finding a new career, rock-climbing, volunteering, adventure travel or online dating, baby boomers are embracing life's second act with gusto.

An important way in which active baby boomers are keeping up their youthful pace is by taking care of their hearing. Dr. Sara Nagel, audiologist at The Center for Audiology in Houston, TX, is seeing this trend firsthand.

“Whereas 15 years ago, the average age of my typical patient was 70-75 years, most patients I see now fall in the 55-65 year age range,” Dr. Nagel said. “Baby boomers embrace life and don’t want to miss out due to hearing loss. “

Boomers in their 40s, 50s and 60s are getting their hearing tested. They want to stay healthy, connected and engaged. They don’t want to suffer the negative social, cognitive and professional consequences that result from untreated hearing loss. Simply put, the generation has caught onto the fact that today's state-of-the-art hearing aids are highly effective, sleek and sophisticated wearable electronics that can help them stay actively connected to life - not to mention to all their other prized electronics.

Five trending facts about today's hearing aids:
1.    They're virtually invisible. Many of today's hearing aids sit discreetly and comfortably inside the ear canal, providing both natural sound quality and discreet and easy use.
2.    They automatically adjust to all kinds of soundscapes. Recent technological advances with directional microphones have made hearing aids far more versatile than ever before - and in a broad range of sound environments.
3.    You can enjoy water sports and sweat while wearing them. Waterproof digital hearing aids have arrived. This feature is built into some newly designed hearing aids for those concerned about water, humidity and dust. This feature suits the active lifestyles of swimmers, skiers, snowboarders, intensive sports enthusiasts and anyone working in dusty, demanding environments.
4.    They connect with smartphones, home entertainment systems and other prized electronics. Wireless, digital hearing aids are now the norm. That means seamless connectivity - directly into your hearing aid(s) at volumes that are just right for you - from your smartphone, MP3 player, television and other high-tech gadgets.
5.    Extended-wear hearing aids now offer the choice of no-hassle, 24/7 hearing. It's super convenient - and there's no more fumbling with small batteries.
