This last week, Starkey unveiled a new app which allows you to screen yourself for hearing loss, and check your environment for noises that could damage your hearing. The app is called SoundCheck, and it is available in the Apple App Store and Google Play for Android. I shared how it can help in this video:
We live in a wonderful time when there is technology at our finger tips to help make our lives easier with additional information so that we can make informed decisions.
Last week I was able to make a presentation to the Minico High School Band members about the costs of hearing loss. Using the app, we were able to measure with my iPhone how loud the drumline was individually, and then with the entire band playing!
I'd love to know if you download and use the app. How did it help you?
