Hearing Aid Fittings

Fitting hearing aids is an essential aspect of caring for individuals with hearing loss. To ensure accurate and effective fitting, a variety of best practices should be followed. Real Ear Measurement (REM) is among the most vital components of hearing aid fitting.

Real Ear Measurement (REM)

REM entails placing a small probe in the ear canal and measuring the hearing aid’s amplification of sound across different frequencies. This technique allows for precise calibration of the hearing aid to match the individual’s specific hearing loss, while also detecting any discomfort caused by the device.

In addition to REM, other crucial factors contribute to a successful hearing aid fitting. These include selecting the appropriate style and size of hearing aid for the patient, as well as ensuring its comfort during wear. By adhering to these best practices, our Total Hearing Care Team can ensure effective and comfortable hearing experiences for their patients with new hearing aids.
