On May 7, 2018 IDA University’s group for health technology was once again the host of an event where, among other, the BEAR project was presented (by Dorte Hammershøi).
Almost 90 participatant had defied the temptation to stay at home on the lovely sunny day, and attended the presentations. A status was given for the BEAR project, which has now collected data for almost 2000 patients, who have had their hearing tested and hearing aids fitted during the past year. An insight into the new methods which are being considered in the project, and what expectations might be linked to these were given.
The presentation was follow by a rich discussion, and there was also time to reflect on WHO’s concern for an increasing number of hearing damages as a consequence of unhealthy music listening habits, and what methods may apply to the detection of early changes in hearing.
The meeting was held on the 15th floor of the EY house in Århus with a beautiful view of the city’s skyline (photo).
