Study Shows Positive Benefits of New Hearing Device May Make It Hard to Resist – Even for People Who Put Off Dealing with Hearing Loss

Residents of Niagara Region may soon be hearing a lot less of some familiar expressions at social gatherings, noisy restaurants or business meetings: “Pardon me?” “Can you repeat that?” “I’m sorry, I didn’t hear what you said.”

Mr. Jerry Laufman, Owner of Lincoln Hearing Clinic in Beamsville, Ontario is one of the first hearing care professionals in Canada to offer Oticon Intiga, a new hearing device that is specifically designed to address the needs and preferences of people new to hearing instruments.  Results of a recently released international study conducted at two universities, Towson University in Maryland, USA and The Hörzentrum in Oldenburg, Germany, show that new Intiga triggers immediate acceptance by people new to hearing instruments.

“This challenges the commonly held myth that it takes time to get used to hearing aids,” says Mr.Laufman. “With Intiga, I am finding people who were reluctant to try hearing aids not only accepting this new hearing solution immediately but also seeing themselves as long term users of amplification.”

“Intiga’s advanced technology, sleek ergonomic design and the fact that it is the world’s smallest wireless hearing solution motivate people with hearing loss to take action now to improve their quality of life,” Mr. Laufman explains.

In addition to quality of life benefits, Intiga also appeals to the almost universal desire for a hearing instrument with discreet size and style. Intiga’s small, sleek ergonomic design hides easily behind the ear and is comfortable to wear throughout the day.
The fully automatic technology also means there are no buttons to adjust.
Wireless connectivity allows Intiga to act as a wireless, hands-free headset for mobile phones and other entertainment devices.

“I always encourage people to consider a trial of new hearing instruments,” adds Mr.Laufman. “The US and European research results provide an added incentive to make that trial with new Intiga!”
