Tele-audiology, or remote hearing care, allows a hearing professional to make programming changes to hearing aids without the need to visit the office.
Remote care is almost always provided through a remote care application (app) on your smartphone for video calls or chats with your hearing professional. Theses apps allow for remote programming, text messaging and video chats for counseling purposes. You can use the app to communicate with your hearing professional, to provide information about your hearing aid usage, and get real-time adjustments to your hearing aids.
You will need to know the brand of your hearing aid to get started. Find the manufacturer of your hearing aids below and view their website to gain more information about tele-audiology opportunities. For assistance setting up your smartphone or knowing if tele-audiology is right for you, please contact your hearing health professional.
