This contribution compares a currently worn hearing instrument (i.e. R-HI) with a programmable multiband full-dynamic range compression behind-the-ear HI (i.e. T-HI), based on subject preference for HI, and, in addition, compares the preference for a linear/ non-linear amplification-mode (i.e. L-mode/C-mode). Finally, it evaluates some health technology(More)
A cohort of 72 hearing-impaired children of a median age of 9.7 years, range 4.3-13.9, born during 1980-1990 and living in the health district of Copenhagen City was examined cross-sectionally in order to evaluate the interval from identification to the initial fitting of hearing aids (HAs) and children's use of HAs. As measures of outcome, the use of HAs(More)
The purpose of the study was to perform clinical tests with two BTE-hearing aids (BTE-HAs) having different frequency characteristics--and to correlate the results of the clinical tests to self-assessed use and benefit. The material comprised 16 subjects (SS) (median age: 74.5 years, range: 70-83 years) with moderate, sensorineural hearing losses. Patient(More)
The study compares the audiological profile of a group of first-time applicants for hearing aids, a group of re-applicants and a group of non-complainers, aged 70-75 years (n = 71). In spite of overlap in range, a significant difference in thresholds and discrimination was found. The lip-reading capacity was well preserved in the elderly, but showed a(More)
A consecutive clinical sample of 154 highly selected patients with severe problems due to tinnitus have been treated within a programme combining psychological and prosthetic approaches. The therapy works within the framework of existential psychology. The programme was evaluated by a postal questionnaire. Pre- and post-intervention comparisons of(More)
71 individuals aged 70-75 years, whose audiological profile has been described in part I' of the study, were subjected to an extensive psychological questionnaire to evaluate the influence of hearing impairment on the psychological and sociological profile and general behaviour. The subjects consisted of three groups: first-time applicants for hearing-aids,(More)
An interview study was performed to establish and evaluate the need for education and counselling of hearing aid users (HA users) in order to review present procedures of information and potential referral to the educational sector. The study comprises 102 consecutively selected hearing-impaired adults (>18 years), the only inclusion criterion being(More)
New hearing aids are usually introduced after clinical trials. These are mostly based on subjects reports, in which it is possible that the subject's judgment of the acoustic performance might be influenced by the awareness that it is a new hearing aid which is being investigated. To examine the benefit of a new non-linear amplification circuit, a(More)
