What difficulties do hearing aid users have?

The muzzle protects and absorbs sound. In addition, people who can’t hear clearly can no longer Orient themselves through the movements of other people’s lips. Even then, not wearing a mask is not an option. According to a study published in The Lancet, nose and mouth protection can reduce the risk of infection by 80 percent. Therefore, if you do not wear a mask, you will endanger yourself and others.

Still, wearing a mask can be a challenge: If taken off again, the tape often ends up in the frame of the glasses or in the hearing aid. If the glasses slip, you’ll notice it quickly. Hearing AIDS that falls off your ear may be ignored. Hearing AIDS can be accidentally stepped on, lost, or damaged by moisture. Not necessarily. Modern equipment is splash-proof, but too much moisture in puddles in the fall can still damage them.

However, there are steps you can take to help avoid this situation.

Stay calm.

Prevent losing your hearing aid – take off your mask properly!

When putting on or taking off mouth and nose protection, care must be taken to ensure that the hearing aid is not lost or accidentally damaged. Three common mask types fit the wearer (hearing aid and mask).

The face mask with ear hangings is probably the most famous variant. The straps can be removed by carefully lifting them off the ear, pulling them back, and making sure they do not come in contact with the hearing aid. Then pull the belt sideways and forward.

The best thing to do after that is to check that the hearing aid is still in place.

Mouth and nose protectors are less risky, with this model’s straps not behind the ears but behind the head. The advantage is that the upper belt can be placed separately. But here, too, you have to make sure all the straps aren’t inadvertently grabbed and accidentally tug on the hearing aid when you remove them! It is important to grasp them with both hands at all times, pull them to the side and back, and keep them at a distance from the head.

A mask with a hearing aid may be the best choice for hearing aid wearers. They can be fixed under the ears, on the back of the head, and around the neck, and can be easily removed again.
