Dr. Elaine Saunders, audiologist, biomedical engineer, and Executive Chairman of award-winning Australian telehealth and hearing aid company, Blamey Saunders hears joins eHealth Radio and the Hearing Health Channel.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Elaine Saunders discuss the following:

  1. How does an online hearing solution work?
  2. How can you test hearing online?
  3. What can we expect in regards to the appearance of hearing aids today?
  4. Hearing aids are always quoted as very expensive - with premium devices upwards of $10k. Are they really worth that investment?
  5. If someone is starting to have trouble hearing in restaurants and some situations where it is noisy - what advantages would they get from having a hearing aid, most would rather just put up with it?

Tip: I suggest listeners get hearing aids as soon as they find difficulty hearing, in order to make sure the brain gets enough brain stimulation for hearing speech sounds

Based in Santa Monica, California, Sagely was created by Kaley and Kerrigan when their moms began complaining about how daily aches and pains were standing in the way of being active.

Employing PhD chemists, state of the art facilities and premium hemp, Sagely was born.
