Health Tip: Devices to Help You Hear Better
(HealthDay News) -- If you have a significant hearing loss, hearing aids and other sound-amplification devices can help you cope.
The National Institute on Aging mentions these "assistive" devices that can help you hear better:
A telephone-amplifying system.
Headphones or similar systems for TV and radio that can avoid the need to crank up the volume or deal with background noise.
Devices for your doorbell, alarm clock or smoke detectors that trigger vibrations or a visual alert when these things sound.
