The hearing aid is designed to fit deep into the ear canal.  It is 16mm in length and can be worn for 24 hours a day for up to 4 months at a time.  The idea behind the design is that it is unobtrusive so that users almost forget they are wearing it.  It can be worn whilst sleeping, in the shower and during exercise.
 
The hearing aid, known asLyric and manufactured by InSound Medical, is inserted 4mm from the ear drum and allows the outer ear to direct sound into the ear canal more naturally.  It is designed to improve the wearers ability to work out what direction a sound is coming from and reduces feedback.  Unlike traditional hearing aids there are no batteries to change, no maintenance needed and no daily insertion or removal.
 
I deal in a lot of Noise Induced Hearing Loss work and clients are often reluctant to even consider a hearing aid, due to the stigma attached to them.  I am often told they are uncomfortable and look unsightly.  However, these new hearing aids may lead to a change of view, but at a cost of £100.00 per month, yes, you heard me right £100.00 per month, perhaps that is unlikely!
