Hearing aid devices are used to help people with hearing loss or those who can’t hear properly.
It’s a small electronic device that people wear behind their ears to hear and communicate with ease. These devices amplify the sound that the patients hear. Hence they are able to hear the sounds loudly and clearly.
Through the help of this article, we’ll get to know how the future hearing aid technology will be of great news for deaf or partially deaf patients!!
As Robert. A. Heinleir said, “Everything is theoretically impossible until it’s practically done.”
Who could have ever imagined that people who are deaf or are unable to hear properly, will be able to hear even the sound of a pin falling in a silent room just with the help of a small electronic device attached to their ear!!!
Exactly. No one, right!!!!
But it happened. That’s the magic of MODERN SCIENCE!!!!!
The Evolution of Hearing Aids.
Technology is evolving at a very fast rate. And it really wouldn’t be a shock if tomorrow we hear the news that there will be flying cars available in the market!!!
In the past years, hearing aids have advanced and improved drastically due to the advancement of modern technological science. And through this article, you’ll get the predictions and possibilities of how far modern tech can take these simple hearing devices to their highest potential possible!!!
In 2005, more than 93% of the hearing aids sold in the USA contained DSP (Digital Signal Processing). I know, it’s quite a stiff term!! But it simply means that these are high-tech processors that helped people to hear and understand the speeches even in loud noises.
The year 2014 was a blast for these devices as the researchers came up with a microsystem. These aids now were much smaller than the older versions. And could be fitted on the ears very smoothly and easily. The reason for this was as the sizes of the digital hearing aids became smaller, they consumed less energy and were less visible on the ears.
The hearing aids were on fire when the wireless Bluetooth connectivity came into the market.
People went crazy for it!!!!
As they can now tune their Bluetooth hearing aids with other devices like televisions, laptops, mobile phones, etc which use any sort of audio signals that supports Bluetooth connectivity. This innovation helped people to estimate the amount of background noises and made hearing more clear and soothing.
What We Might See In The Future??
Past is history and the future is a mystery!! So, we can always assume what is going to come in the future.
Seeing the current progress of technology, it’s very natural for us to make assumptions because that is where the fun of science lies!!
Heart Beat and Blood Pressure Can Be monitored
In the future, we might see such aids that will monitor yourheart-beats and your bloodpressure and will notify you with assessments and advice.
These aids might act like your personal doctors while you are working, walking, or exercising.
Don’t be! Cause there are more!!
The Art Of Artificial Intelligence Technology
There might also be aids that will adjust the volume by itself with the help of artificial intelligence technology.
That means if you hear a lot of background noises or you are unable to hear clearly, the aid itself will adjust the volume for you. So, you don’t need to adjust manually.
The future aids might be so small in size that you can fit it inside your ear so that no one will notice that you are wearing one.
And with the blessing of advanced technology, it will do everything on its own or you can control it with your smartphone or smartwatch if you want!!!
Your Personalised Translator.
Just imagine you went abroad and you have no idea about the language of that locality. And you can’t even communicate with ease because you don’t understand their language.
But no need to worry!!
Because in the future there might be hearing aids that will act as your translator!! That means when you step into a new nation you don’t need to worry about communication errors at all!!
These devices will automatically adjust the location and suit the preferable language for you.
So that when someone says “Wie ghets” (German Language) you will now know it’s “How are you?” in English.
Artificial Ears Doing The Magic.
The question is what science didn’t do to make our lives easy!!
It did and is doing everything to make our lives simple and interesting!!!
So will you be shocked on seeing artificial ears that match your skin tone but instead are hearing aids??
I bet you won’t!! Cause through this article you have already put yourself in the future!!
These ears might be designed in such a way that when you wear them it will seem like a normal ear to others, but instead, they are your cure to deafness!!
But make sure it doesn’t fall from your ear because people might be afraid of seeing an ear fall out!!!!!!
Hope, this article took you to the future world where you can see the evolution of hearing aids and how interesting a weakness can turn out to be. So HAPPY HEARING!!!!
