Hearing Aids– Our clinic deals with different types, styles and power of hearing aids which help each patient to choose the best listening device for them.
There are various types of hearing aids.
- BTE- (behind the ear)
These aids consist of a case that rests on the pinna (ear) with the tubing connected to the ear moulds. These are suitable for mild to profound hearing loss cases.
- ITE-(in the ear)
These are custom made hearing aids suitable for mild to severe losses. These hearing aids rest in the concha of the ear.
- RIC-(receiver in the canal)
These are a new style of hearing aids. RIC is a small hearing aid which delivers sound to the receiver through a thin wire. These hearing aids are made with a small BTE (behind the ear) device. They provide less occlusion and more comfort to the patient.
- ITC-(in the canal)
It is a small hearing aid which rests in the ear canal and is not visible.
- CIC-(completely in the canal)
These hearing aids are small in size and not much visible.
- IIC-(Invisible in the canal)
- Custom made according to each patient canal.
- BAHA-(bone- anchored hearing aid)
This hearing aid is implanted in the bone behind the ear. It is useful in patients with severe hearing loss in one ear or in patients with discharging ears or malformation of the outer ear.
