It can get pretty tough for young kids to get used to wearing a hearing aid if they happen to experience some sort of hearing disability, where your regular hearing aid can be an uncomfortable, disconcerting, and embarrassing experience. Nice to know that someone out there has a heart for such kids, coming up with the Pulse – an auditory system that intends to smoothen this rather difficult transition by providing interactive activities including memory games and recording challenges which the whole family is able to participate in. Pulse will rely on audio induction loop technology that sports colorful aid receivers and conical transmitters, while replica aids for non-hearing aid wearers will also deliver audible as well as visual positive reinforcement for children in order for them to see as well as hear the benefits of wearing a hearing aid. Time to make this concept become real, of course!
