World's smartest hearing aid
changes Largs Bay resident's life
Largs Bay resident Margaret Claridge
is among the first Australians to
be fitted with the world's most
technologically advanced hearing
aid -- the Widex mind440 -- which is
giving people with hearing loss the
chance to hear "true sound" like
Mrs Claridge, a world-traveller in her
early 80s, relies on her good hearing
to remain socially independent and a
genuine free spirit.
"My main struggle was with
background noise which made it
increasingly hard for me in social
situations or when the television
was on and it was making me very
frustrated. Now I can handle all types
of situations," she said.
The mind440 hearing aid uses the
world's most powerful hearing aid
signal processing system, called
Dual ISP, to provide users with a
natural sound. This technological
leap revolutionises hearing aid
functionality, promising to end
traditional hearing aid flaws such as
feedback or "whistling" in the ear
and sound distortion.
According to Ms Debbie Bennett
from Proficient & Loyal Hearing
Services, the mind440 takes hearing

from society due to the inability to
communicate is disturbing. Being
able to provide someone with the
means to once again enjoy life is very
rewarding," she said.

the mind440 contact Debbie
