The Hearing Clinic UK recently provided some specialist hearing care to a patient who was suffering with Ushers Syndrome. This progressive condition affects both the sufferers hearing and sight, and to date there is no cure. This causes considerable difficulty with mobility and communication and in effect can lead to isolation and depression.
With many sufferers using hearing aids or cochlear implants to access sound, the Molly Watt Trust approached The Hearing Clinic UK to help a specific patient with unique hearing needs.
The use of the latest hearing technologies affords the Usher Community to access the world, combined with help with their sight. The Hearing Clinic UK is pleased to assist sufferers of this rare disorder, and provide five star quality hearing healthcare.
After a full hearing assessment with Chris Stone, Senior Audiologist with The Hearing Clinic UK Colin was fitted with a set of GN Resound hearing aid devices. These devices as seen in the video below, drastically improved his ability to hear clearly, and communicate better.
