In this episode Christopher Medina goes through the steps on what the process is in terms of getting your hearing aid fitted once you come into a hearing aid dispenser such as Virtue Hearing.
What will you expect when you get your hearing aids fitted?
Christopher will walk you through the fitting by fitting himself with a receiver in the ear canal using the Widex Evoke hearing aid device.
Step 1: Conduct a hearing test.
Step 2: Those results will go into our software and into the hearing aid to adjust those levels into your custom hearing aid.
Step 3: We add the hearing aid onto the patient.
Step 4: We connect the hearing aid to the computer and adjust the settings based on the patients hearing levels and comfortability. This is called a "First Fit".
The software will then ask a series of questions based on your lifestyle and experience with hearing aids.
Step 5: Run the feedback manager. This is meant to reduce any feedback you are experiencing.
Step 6: We keep adjusting until the patient lets us know it is now comfortable for them.
Step 7: We schedule a follow up appointment to double check all is going well with your hearing aid.
