Until recently, you had to go to the hearing care professional’s shop to adjust or adjust a hearing aid. There your hearing aid was adjusted to its best and you then had to go to the store for a few checks. This is now a thing of the past for a number of hearing aid brands.
With a number of brands it is now possible to make the hearing aid adjustments completely at home. You then make contact with the hearing care professional via an app on your tablet or smartphone. With the Widex brand, for example, it is possible to do the entire adjustment remotely. In the app there is even a video connection with the hearing care professional in his location, who can then immediately adjust the hearing aid at that moment. Questions can be answered immediately and things can also be demonstrated via the image connection. Yes, even a real hearing test with the hearing aids in is possible!
Each hearing aid manufacturer has its own options. One has developed a complete adjustment and the other you only have to come to the store for an initial adjustment. The follow-up adjustments will then take place at your home.What you have to take into account with these adjustments remotely is that each way, from the remote adjustment, requires a tablet or smartphone and the accompanying app. These apps are free from any manufacturer.
