TeleAudiology: Virtual Care for Hearing Loss The HearingTracker Podcast: Hearing Aids, Hearing Technology, and Hearing Loss

    • Technology

In 2021, most hearing aids can be adjusted remotely, from the comfort and safety of your home. It's easy to connect with an audiologist through video-conferencing services like Zoom, to discuss your experiences and receive intimate private counseling. And there are even direct-to-consumer hearing aids that can be purchased over the internet, with follow-up services provided remotely by licensed hearing healthcare practitioners. 

Over the next few episodes, we’ll explore how new telehealth technologies in audiology might help you on your own personal hearing journey. In today's episode—the first in our telehealth mini-series—we talk to Dr Cliff Olson about the growth of telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic. We'll also talk to Dr De Wet Swanepoel, a Professor at the University of Pretoria (and founder at hearX Group), about how scientists are overcoming hearing healthcare accessibility challenges in Africa with the aid of new telehealth technologies. And more!
