New research shows hearing aids change lives and improve health

three year study involving over 800 adults between ages 69-83 confirms there is solid evidence that hearing aids help people listen better and participate more fully in everyday activities. 

Dr. Melanie Ferguson, who led the study on behalf of a team at the UK’s Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre, said the research also showed evidence that “there are benefits to [wearer’s] general health from using hearing aids.” 

“For the first time,” Dr. Ferguson went on to say, “we are able to reassure people…that using hearing aids has a number of proven benefits on their quality of life.”
