Defining Popular Hearing Aid Terms

People who have suffered hearing loss might want to consult with physicians and other medical experts about installing hearing aids. These devices can run a wide gamut in terms of technical sophistication, ranging from the primitive, antiquated devices of the 19th century to modern-day digital brands.

  • BTE - Standing for "behind the ear," this acronym designates hearing aids comprised of casing, a tube, and moldings fitted personally for the owner. Such devices can benefit people whose problems with their hearing have occurred to varying degrees of severity.
  • ITC - So-called "in the canal" devices require added effort and expense in order to customize the shape of hearing aids exactly to the contour of the inside of an individual's ear. Digital techniques are employed to create a model of this part of the owner's body.
  • RIC - Similar to the aforementioned hearing aid, this acronym stands for "Receiver in the" interior of the ear. It can also be called "Receiver in the Ear."
  • CI - Standing for "cochlear implants," these types are implanted in an individual via surgical procedures. These kinds of hearing aids may also be known as bionic ears.
  • Disposable aids - Usually the battery placed in hearing aids has only a short life, and must be replaced at some point. On the other hand, a disposable hearing aid will be bought with a long-lasting battery.
  • BAHA - Standing for "Bone Anchored Hearing Aid," these devices act on the principle of conducting sound through a person's skeleton. This kind of hearing aid has been made available for those who cannot wear some of the aforementioned types of devices.

    Some people need help hearing through the use of small devices that fit comfortably inside the ear. Kids and adults alike can have hearing problems, but all can have differing degrees of hearing loss. Most hearing aids are battery operated, and there are several kinds out there, including digital, wireless, behind-the-ear (BTE), in-the-canal (ITC), and in-the-ear (INE) devices. Some are even disposable. Hearing aids act as amplifiers for sound waves to help with all ranges of hearing loss. People are better able to listen thanks to technology that can lessen background noise and amplify others sounds. Consumers can get fitted for such aids by an audiologist. Companies that sell hearing aids may also sell related products, such as batteries, plugs, and amplified mobile phones. Wholesalers sell large quantities of products to retailers and other consumers at bulk discounts. Many websites feature discount products, along with free shipping, free consultations, virtual help, repair specialists, and full product catalogs. Today's hearing aids are discrete, comfortable, and lightweight, compared with the earliest ones, which were large and cumbersome. The first aids 200 years ago were essentially trumpets in the shape of large horns. Specialists can help their patients by providing testing and evaluations of each individual. He or she can write prescriptions for the right type of sound wave amplifier or implant for each patient. There are even used hearing aids out there for purchase at a reduced cost. Price varies by brand, so consumers can start out by researching their options online.
