The Hearing Company Reveal Handy Tips for Hearing Aid Users to Stay Active and Play Sports

As we look back upon a fantastic year for British sport, the UK’s leading provider of modern hearing aids has some great ideas about participating in sport, despite any hearing difficulty.

When the success of the London 2012 Olympic Games was only added to by the Paralympic games, an important message was sent out which made clear that just about anybody could take part in fun and exciting competitive sport and all would benefit from doing so; even those with hearing difficulties.

The modern hearing aid allows the hearing impaired to lead as normal a life as possible, and do many of the things that they might have done previously. But wearing hearing aids and playing various sports can be extremely challenging, whether those sports are played individually, or as part of a team.

Communication is vital in team sport, but that communication needn’t purely be verbal. If you are keen to remove your hearing aid during the game, it is important to speak to your coach and your teammates and suggest the best way for them to communicate with you during practice and match play. When the coach is dishing out important words of wisdom, make sure you have a clear line of sight to the information, or suggest an alternative method of getting the information across, such as a whiteboard.

As small electronic devices, a number of hearing aids can be sensitive to excessive sweat. A simple headband or sweatband will prevent any moisture from affecting the hearing aid, and can even help to keep the device in place.

A number of waterproof digital hearing aids are available, and these devices, won’t just help with a little sweat, but can also be worn whilst swimming. These devices are more expensive to purchase and are only recommended to regular swimmers.

New Website Aims To Help Texans In Need Of Medicaid Hearing Aids

Hearing Aid Express launched  Texas Medic Aid Hearing Aid to help eligible Texas Medicaid recipients understand their benefits and successfully be fit with quality hearing aids.

Medicaid Hearing Aids

This site helps those eligible for Medicaid hearing aid benefits navigate the process of getting hearing devices, step-by-step.

To see if you have a hearing loss , schedule an appointment at a Hearing Aid Express office. Provide your Medicaid card and a photo ID upon check in.  We will give you a 100% free hearing test to determine the degree of your hearing loss and if an eligible hearing loss is found suggest the appropriate device.

Next, visit a doctor who will examine your ears and determine if there is a medical reason why you should not be fitted with hearing instruments . The doctor will complete a medical release form that is downloadable from the Texasmedicaidhearingaids.com site. Bring the completed medical release to any Hearing Aid Express office and you will be fit with hearing aids.

Following a significant change in Medicaid benefits for the hearing impaired, eligible residents can now get a pair of quality hearing aids (average value of $4800) at no cost to them every five years. Prior to Dec. 2008 it was only one aid every six years.

Many might not be aware how quickly hearing aid technology has evolved in recent years. Today’s hearing instruments are tiny and are equipped with state-of-the-art features that offer quality performance.

Because there have been instances of Medicaid fraud, this website also features a special section to help Medicaid recipients avoid becoming victims.

Since hearing has a tremendous impact on lifestyle, it is important to get your hearing tested for free if you believe you have a hearing loss. Hearing Aid Express, a leading provider of hearing aids in Texas, is striving to share information and fit area Medicaid recipients with quality hearing instruments.
