When should you consult an audioprosthesist?
If, after your hearing tests, your audiogram reveals impairments, a hearing aid may be prescribed. You will then have to meet with an audioprosthetist, who will provide you with the adequate treatment: a hearing aid. A true concentration of custom-made technology, this is a small electronic device that amplifies the sounds that you can’t hear or that you can no longer hear.
To choose the hearing aid that suits you the best, the audioprosthetist will advise you in the selection process. Depending on your situation and your preferences, they may offer you an ear contour, an in-the-ear (ITE), in-the-canal (ITC), or completely-in-the-canal (CIC) device, or a continuous-wear apparatus.
