Assistive technology

Hearing aids and hearing-related assistive technology serve to support those living with hearing impairments. Hearing aids are available in several different models and are the basic tool used to help those with a loss of hearing. Assistive technology refers to products that supplement hearing aids on an everyday basis. Hearing-related assistive technology can be anything from an FM system to mobile phone accessories that allow sound to enter directly into the ear without background noise. There is a wide variety of assistive technology available.

Remember that a communication centre or a special consultant can help you find the right assistive technology for your private use or for the workplace.

Assistive technology is free. You can read more about public funding here.
