LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MMP (USA) announces a Modern Living with kathy ireland exclusive interview with Tweak Hearing, a company that has created a new way for people to hear if they are not yet ready for a hearing aid.
In his experience, Dr. Schumaier says that the reason people are challenged with choosing the right hearing aid is because, "We only are serving 24 percent of people who have hearing loss in this country. This is because of two things. The first would be the expense of hearing aids and the second would be the delivery system. My goal was to develop something that would be affordable and easily programmed so it could be adjusted for people. That is what I have developed with Tweak Hearing."
"In the past hearing aids were developed where we would use software and we would have to hook wires to the hearing aid. With our piece, we can store multiple algorithms for fitting inside the piece so there are no wires and we empower the wearer to set the instrument so that it is comfortable for them," said Dr. Schumaier.
JL Haber, Vice President of Programming of Modern Living with kathy ireland, was quoted stating, "Many people do not want to get hearing aids and it has, until now, been difficult to adjust. Tweak Hearing has developed a product that is easy to use and is affordable."
