1. What is a hearing aid?
Hearing Aid (HA) is an excellent partner for hearing loss people to access sound.
2. Kinds of hearing aid?
There are air conduction hearing aid and bone conduction hearing aid.
Most convention hearing aid is air conduction HA, meaning sound spread through air. This kind of HA is suitable for people with normal ear-shape.
Bone conduction hearing aid transmits vibration from the HA to the human bone (skull). Patients with abnormal ear-shape, no pinna can be used this.

ANALOG HEARING AID (non wired)
DIGITAL HEARING AID (non wired)

– RIC (Receiver In the Canal): same wearing as BTE, however the sound is transmitted through the wire to the receiver (a very small speaker) which is put in the ear canal. This type of hearing aid is smaller than BTE type with varietal power of amplification. This type is the most wanted hearing aid today.
– ITC (In The Canal), ITE (In The Ear), CIC (Complete In the Canal): all-in-one hearing aid with compact size can fit inside the canal. This type of hearing aid bring cosmetic wearing option, however it’s limited in power of amplification and features.
