Telehealth: Making Hearing Care More Personalized

 

You’ve probably heard of telehealth, the provision of healthcare services remotely by means of telecommunication technology—your smartphone, computer, or wearable device. The trend is on the rise across all types of specialties, and hearing care is no exception.

What does this mean for you?

Online Hearing Test

To start, you can take an online hearing test that will assess your hearing loss right from your couch. Once you take the test, you will receive an email and be contacted by a customer service representative to talk about next steps and schedule an appointment, if one is needed.

Beltone Apps

If your hearing care professional recommends a hearing aid after your in-office hearing screening and hearing aid demonstration, you can take advantage of one of Beltone’s apps to ensure your hearing aids are always adjusted just right.

You no longer have to make an office visit every time you need something tweaked. And now, you can make simple adjustments on the go throughout your day.

The new HearMax™ app  is the most advanced of its kind for hearing aid wearers. It makes controlling Beltone Trust™ hearing aids from a mobile device easy and discreetly.

Beltone Legend, Beltone First, and Beltone Boost users can control their hearing aids simply and intuitively with the HearPlus app.

The Tinnitus Calmer app offers a combination of Sound Therapy and relaxing exercises that aim to distract your brain from focusing on your Tinnitus.

Direct Phone Link 2 and SmartRemote allow you to use your smartphone or tablet as a remote control to adjust volume, change listening programs and enjoy clear phone calls.

Wireless Accessories

Direct line accessories make it easier than ever to wirelessly stream sound and hear what you want and tune out what you don’t. For example, with the Beltone Remote Control 2, you can stream a phone call right to your hearing aids, even if you phone is put away. Or, with the Beltone TV Link 2, you can tune out a room of chatting people to hear a television program.

Beltone Phone Link 2 is a small and lightweight way to secure a connection between your Bluetooth® phone and your hearing instruments. You can hear the phone ring in your hearing aids, even when the phone is in a pocket or handbag. You can speak hands-free, and enjoy crisp, clear conversation in both ears. You can even use the mute button to eliminate background noise when you’re conversing in loud surroundings. Phone Link 2 also serves as a remote control to change your environmental programs and adjust hearing aid volume whether or not you’re on the phone.

Really need to hear someone? Beltone myPAL Micro and Beltone myPAL Pro are small portable microphones you can hand over to the person you want to hear. They will capture the sound clearly, even in noisy environments, and stream it directly into your hearing aids, bringing the conversation closer to you.

Are you ready to start hearing better in all environments? Start the process with a free hearing screening.

    Maribeth, Thanks for writing and posting the article. I am new to the blog, but impressed.
    Are these articles available for distribution to print media outlets if I am a Beltone HCP looking for Beltone/Hearing Health exposure. I think I can get timely articles picked up occasionally if I will regularly feed them to several outlets in and around my market.
    Please Respond!
    Thanks again.

    It’s good to know there is already online hearing test available and also, wireless accessories for hearing aids seem cool. However, I still do think it is best to consult in a hearing clinic and have it checked personally.
