MDHearingAid Helps Improve Quality of Life for Those with Hearing Loss
Holidays can be a difficult time of year for the 29 million hearing-challenged Americans who have no hearing aids. Those with untreated hearing loss are not only likely to suffer from social isolation and vulnerability to depression, anxiety and even dementia every day of their lives, but also tend to miss out on everything from dinner conversations to their grandchildren’s present-opening exclamations at holiday time. MDHearingAid, America’s leading affordable hearing aid manufacturer, is giving away 12 pairs of MDHearingAid PRO hearing aids this holiday to help a dozen people who have been tuned out of life re-engage in the conversation during 2017.
To enter the company’s ‘Gift of Hearing Giveaway,’ simply fill out the form at www.mdhearingaid.com/giftofhearing by December 31, 2016. MDHearingAid will select 12 winners at the end of the month – one for each of the 12 days of Christmas – and provide a coupon code for hearing aid purchases to all other contestants.
With a retail value of $359.99 per pair, the behind-the-ear MDHearingAid PRO was designed by an otolaryngologist as an affordable ‘one size fits most’ alternative to $2,000-$4,000 conventional hearing aids requiring multiple fitting appointments. The concept is similar to buying ready-made reading glasses at a drugstore instead of custom prescription glasses from a local optical shop, optometrist or ophthalmologist, providing a simple off-the-shelf solution that delivers a dramatic improvement over the challenges of communicating, remaining engaged and enjoying life without hearing correction.
The PRO comes with tubes and domes to adjust the fit to the wearer’s ear, plus volume and listening environment settings enabling adjustments to suit the situation. More than 75,000 of the company’s FDA-registered hearing aids have been sold online, by phone or by mail since the PRO was introduced in 2010, making MDHearingAid the #1-selling supplier of mass market hearing aids.
“Millions of Americans go about their daily lives unable to hear conversations, music or other sounds because of the expense of conventional hearing aids and the fact they are not covered by Medicare or most insurance policies. It’s a major public health problem that has a severe impact on quality of life 365 days a year,” said Dr. Sreek Cherukuri, founder and Chief Medical Officer of MDHearingAid. “Our Gift of Hearing Giveaway is designed to help people reestablish the social and emotional connections they lose when they begin to lose their hearing. It’s arguably the best gift you can give yourself or a loved one: the ability to re-engage in life.”
A few months ago, we released a review of the MDHearingAid VOLT. They are a quality product and they work very well. This is a wonderful opportunity for those who need hearing assistance.
