Patient-driven diagnostics and fitting

The various hearing-aids technologies offer their users different options for change of instrument settings, which many appreciate. Maybe it is possible generally to achieve a better outcome and higher satisfaction, if the user is more directly involved in the fitting process. Maybe the user may perform control tests at home, which may help readjust the hearing aid, and maybe the hearing aid can adjust to these changes with a visit to the clinic. We don’t know what options future technologies may have, but with this area we will assess the user challenges and possible advantages, a patient driven diagnosis and fitting may have.

This work will start late 2018.
