Untreated hearing loss can hurt your brain
If you choose not to treat hearing loss, you might increase your risk of accelerated cognitive decline. This is because your brain and ears work together. The ears funnel sound into the hearing system and your brain processes the sound into meaning.
With hearing loss, you need to use more mental effort all of the time, just to understand what people are saying. Consequently, people with hearing loss can become more tired and find social situations too demanding. It can often lead a person to withdraw, and their brain begins to lack stimulation – which can lead to mental decline .
This is why Oticon developed BrainHearing™ technology. Our unique approach to hearing aids starts with the brain and supports the way the brain naturally makes sense of sound.
