Hearing Aid Accessories For Children

A hearing aid is a small electronic device that you wear in or behind your ear. It makes some sounds louder so that a person with hearing loss can listen, communicate, and participate more fully in daily activities. A hearing aid can help people hear more in both quiet and noisy situations. However, only about one out of five people who would benefit from a hearing aid actually uses one.

How can I care for my hearing aid?

Proper maintenance and care will extend the life of your hearing aid. Make it a habit to:

  1. Keep hearing aids away from heat and moisture.
  2. Clean hearing aids as instructed. Earwax and ear drainage can damage a hearing aid.
  3. Avoid using hairspray or other hair care products while wearing hearing aids.
  4. Turn off hearing aids when they are not in use.
  5. Replace dead batteries immediately.
  6. Keep replacement batteries and small aids away from children and pets.

Since hearing holds important role in the daily life, you should the bets thing to your ears. This includes wearing hearing protection devices when you have to be in the place that is exposed to the loud sound to protect your ears. You will find that protecting your ears using ear protectors will be very great for you.

Ear Gear – Hearing Instrument Armor

Ear Gear, which has sold well over 100,000 units in the last 6 years to hearing impaired individuals worldwide, is a well known product for children and adults. It is designed to prevent hearing aids, FM’s Cochlear Processors, and Baha’s, from getting lost and to protect them from dirt, sweat, rain, and chafing.

Keeping Hearing Instruments Secure and Protected
Children hearing aids are a little smaller than adult models but most children still find them difficult to wear, especially in the case of infants, toddlers, and children with developmental delays. Children are notorious for taking their hearing instruments off, especially when they get their first pair. There is an adjustment period, during which children become accustomed to a new “audio” environment. Ear Gear encases their hearing aid. If your children hearing instruments fall off, or if they take them off, Ear Gear with cord and clip ensures that your children hearing instruments are securely attached to their clothing and are easy to find. Ear Gear without cord or clip will protect them from the elements. Hearing aids can cause chaffing. Ear Gear is made from a soft spandex material that makes hearing instruments more comfortable to wear.

Fashion Accessories
Traditionally, hearing instruments were a flesh tone, and designed to be as unobtrusive as possible; however, today, hearing instruments, like glasses, are becoming a fashion accessory. Hearing instruments come in a selection of colored outer cases, and you can attach brightly colored ear molds. Ear Gear comes in a range of stylish patterns and colors that allow self-expression.

Active Lifestyle
Hearing instruments with an FM attachment are not designed for active lifestyles. Most children only wear their FM unit in the classroom. Many parents remove their children hearing instruments when they are involved in active play such as running, jumping, hiking or a favorite sport like soccer, baseball or hockey. Ear Gear keeps hearing instruments in place and protects them from sweat, rain, and dirt. All Ear Gear models are water resistant and allow children to participate more easily in all these activities.

Ear Gear Original

Ear Gear FM
Ear Gear FM is a variation of Ear Gear Original. Ear Gear FM is an inch longer than the original Ear Gear. Ear Gear FM fits hearing aids from 2 to 3 inches and will also accommodate a hearing aid with an FM boot. Ear Gear FM helps to keep FM units securely attached to children hearing aids. Ear Gear FM also significantly improves the appearance of the hearing aid FM combination. Ear Gear FM is available with cord and clip and without. And It is also available in mono and eyeglass models.

Ear Gear Micro, Mini Curved and Mini Square are specially designed to fit the new smaller open fit hearing aids up to 1.25 inches in length, and comes in three styles Micro, Curved and Square .The Micro fits the very smallest of hearing aids ones that are 1″ or less. The Ear Gear Mini Curved fits most hearing aids between 1″ and 1.25″, however in sometimes it is difficult to detach the ear mold from the hearing instrument. In cases like that when it is necessary to leave the hearing instrument in one piece, the larger opening on the top of the Ear Gear Mini Square allows you to slide the sleeve over the hearing instrument. The Micro Mini Square and Mini Curved ares available in binaural models with cord and clip, cordless, mono and eyeglass models.
