How to calibrate hearing aids for deafness
The otoneurological evaluation is performed by Dr. Gustavo Beguelin (otorhinolaryngologist) and consists of a thorough clinical history following a detailed evaluation protocol.
The patient attends weekly sessions of Auditory Retraining Therapy where he/she works with noise or sound generators; it is adapted according to the individual needs of each person.
TRT is a treatment that patients with this symptom can undergo. Its benefits depend on the neuronal plasticity that each individual presents in front of the sound and multisensorial stimuli that are applied during the treatment. This therapy can be performed by men and women of all ages, with normal hearing or hypoacusis, with or without hearing aids.

Because my hearing aids make noise
We have a wide range of hearing aids with the highest and most current technical features in the market. From the simplest to the most modern, all our hearing aids are 100% digital, with absolute guarantee of satisfaction and comfort.
Nowadays, almost 100% of hearing aids incorporate digital technology. However, this should not confuse us. Within the digital technology, hearing aids can have more or less features and functions. The choice of circuit should be determined by the user’s lifestyle and communication needs.
Superior: Automatic hearing aids. Ideal for people who spend much of their time in noisy places and who change sound environment several times a day. High level of social communication.
If you think you may be suffering from hearing loss, see your physician, who can refer you to an otolaryngologist or audiologist. An otolaryngologist is a physician who specializes in ear, nose, and throat disorders and will investigate the cause of hearing loss. An audiologist is an ear health professional who identifies and measures hearing loss and will perform a hearing test to evaluate the type and degree of hearing loss.
White noise in hearing aids
It is essential that a hearing aid works properly so that the person can hear correctly all the sounds that surround him/her. However, sometimes the subject may hear whistling, annoying noises, louder and higher pitched sounds. When this happens it is necessary to calibrate the hearing aid.
Since the hearing aid is a digital technology, the calibration is performed by a speech therapist using a computer and software. This requires the patient’s audiometric information.
The calibration takes into account: loud sounds, soft sounds, the patient’s own voice, and the aim is to reduce background noises. It also provides for speech and listening situations of everyday life of the individual.
For this reason, Beltone offers the technology of “Remote Care” or Remote Assistance* that allows connecting the patient with the speech therapist directly through an application installed on your cell phone. In this way, it allows adjustments to be made to the hearing aid without the person having to move.

A complete hearing test and evaluation is the first step in identifying your hearing loss and finding a solution to address your specific hearing problem. Your evaluation should include a visual exam, several different types of hearing tests and an impression of your ear canal to determine if you are a candidate for invisible or in-canal technology styles. Your results should be clearly explained to help you understand if you have hearing loss and, if so, what type and how severe it is. You should also clearly understand the types of sounds you do not hear with your specific loss.
These casts are usually quite accurate in reproducing the shape of your ear, but on rare occasions it is necessary to repeat the process. Since hearing aids are worn all day, work with your hearing care professional to make sure they fit well and feel right so that you can get the full benefits of hearing aids. You should especially talk to your hearing care professional if a custom earmold is uncomfortable, or if it moves or whistles when you talk or chew.
