While the world is fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, and as our clinics are closed, we at Hearfon are sharing a few tips that will help you with the proper care and maintenance of your Hearing Aids (H/As).
These tips are particularly handy during this lockdown period and you can follow them even after to enhance the performance and longevity of Hearing Aids. Let’s stay safe by following the instructions and staying home. Remember that this too will pass and together we shall overcome the situation.
Hearing Aids spend most of the time in an environment, which is hostile for electronics equipment. The temperature and humidity levels within our own ear canals can create a desirable environment for harmful bacteria. This will negatively impact the environment in which the Hearing Aids spent each moment of their lifecycle.
