Your Journey to Better Hearing
1. Initial Assessment
First of all, we want to get to know you. During your initial consultation your audiologist will assess your hearing and your needs based on your evaluation results and your lifestyle.
Our diagnostic hearing evaluation includes:
- Video view of the inside of your ear
- Tympanometry and middle ear anatomy test
- Pure tone audiometry
- Speech in noise testing
- Acceptable noise level testing
- Explanation of your hearing results
- Advice on a suitable hearing system if required
We don’t just fit your hearing aids in our quiet office, once we have performed our verification testing we take you outside into the real world to demonstrate how good they sound in noise and how they adapt to your current environment. We perform Real Ear Measurement, Live Speech Mapping and the Live Speech in Noise so you know the system works in background noise.
Real Ear Measurement
We use Real Ear Measurement to ensure you are getting the optimum level of amplification, a special microphone analyses the sounds produced by the hearing aids in your ear canal.
And because hearing loss occurs naturally in both ears, we make sure your hearing aids work together to provide the clearest stereo sound possible.
3. First Follow Up
This appointment will take place, ideally, one week after your fitting. It is essential for us to measure how well you get on with your hearing in your own personal situations So, after your fitting, we ask you to go out and try as many different situations and environments as you can.
Your feedback after the first week is very important, as we will have to make the necessary adjustments to enhance your experience with your new hearing system.
4. Second Follow Up
After 3 weeks, we will continue to measure your hearing based on your feedback about how well you are getting on with your hearing system. We will also need to adjust the settings again as you continue to acclimatise to better hearing. During this appointment we will also show you how to look after your hearing system.
5. Third Follow Up
By this point, around 5 weeks after your fitting, your rehabilitation process is nearly finished. During this appointment we will perform the necessary adjustments and we will make sure you are getting the maximum benefit of your hearing system.
6. Final Follow Up
This is a short appointment to make sure you are satisfied and happy with your system. We give you maintenance tips and instructions for you to keep your hearing system at its best and we will make sure you are confident with every aspect of it.
But it does not end there…
7. Ongoing 6 month Reviews
We offer you a 6 month review appointment so we can re-test your hearing insitu through the system and make sure the hearing system is set up to the optimum level. We will perform a clean and service your system.
Every 18 months you will receive a re-evaluation of your hearing as a course of good practice.
