Checking Hearing Aids

Is the hearing aid working?

A hearing aid must be working correctly for the best 'aided thresholds'.  This means hearing aids must be regularly checked.  Special equipment is needed for some checks (eg to check the 'gain' or 'output' given by the hearing aid).

However, batteries, moulds and tubes are all important parts of a hearing aid.  These should be checked everyday.
