UofL Startup Revolutionizes Hearing Aid Provision
With the tool developed by Immersive Hearing Technologies, audiologists could use a VR headset, tablet computer, or a wide screen display to demonstrate how specific hearing aid models and settings would perform in different, realistic environments, such as a school, noisy restaurant, grocery store, or church. This technology has the potential to revolutionize how hearing aids are provided by allowing patients to listen to the hearing aids before purchase and find the right fit for their specific environments.
