Supports auditory acclimatization
When selecting new hearing aids for your pediatric patients, it’s natural to feel hesitation toward switching them to a new brand. To investigate key facilitators for success when switching brands, we interviewed teen hearing aid users. First, participants experienced an in-clinic trial with Oticon Play PX miniBTE rechargeable hearing aids. Following that, they answered a series of open questions during an interview about the process and their listening experience.
Three major themes emerged as key facilitators for successful auditory acclimatization:
• Setting expectations is crucial
• Providing information is encouraging
• Discussing opportunities is motivating
