Hearing impairments is one of among health issues that is easily ignored or neglected. It is usually a gradual process & you don't even realize how much you are loosing. Never the less, hearing impairment can and will affect every aspect of your life just as other health problems.

Unfortunately only few numbers of these people seek help to improve the quality of their hearing.

The need potential for hearing instruments in Asia is high.

  • 6 - 10% of Asia's population between the ages of 15 and 75 experience at least one form of hearing problem
  • Of this population, only approximately 1.1% have been fitted with hearing instruments
  • The population in Asia is aging. Hearing loss comes with age, but the desire for a better quality of life, partly through sustained hearing capability retention, exists.
