Well-Hearing is Well-Being™
Well-being is personal, multidimensional, and fluid. Each of us has a unique take on well-being and what healthy aging looks like. Untreated hearing loss is highly prevalent and can adversely impact many areas of overall well-being. By creating significant communication barriers, hearing loss can separate you from those around you. Phonak’s broad portfolio of hearing solutions support social, cognitive, and physical well-being by re-connecting you to what matters most.
Have you ever felt exhausted? Lonely? Nervous? These feelings could actually be tied to not hearing well. “Exhausted” could have nothing to do with physical stamina and actually be caused by how much listening effort is required to follow everyday conversations. “Lonely” may not be a reflection on the physical distance between family members or friends, but social isolation as a result of untreated hearing loss. And, “nervous” is often a feeling expressed by those with hearing loss who feel unsteady in their environment.
With Phonak Lumity, you will experience reduced listening effort in quiet and in noise. Scientific literature has shown that reduced listening effort may also reduce feelings of fatigue,1,2 making you feel less tired at the end of the day. Plus, improved listening effort frees up cognitive space to focus on things other than hearing.3
With Phonak products, you will have features such as AutoSense OS, StereoZoom, Dynamic Noise Cancellation, and Speech Enhancer (to name a few) for better speech understanding and less listening effort ultimately supporting your social-emotional and cognitive well-being.
Another aspect to consider is how well you can monitor changes in your acoustical environment and how that effects the sense of environmental awareness. Hearing loss can make this more challenging by reducing your ability to detect subtle sounds or make it more difficulty to localize sound sources4. Hearing well in your surroundings may actually contribute to a greater sense of safety. Phonak provides Motion Sensor Hearing, Tap Control, and Roger technology to empower health and support the physical domain of well-being.
With Well-Hearing is Well-Being, we provide a deeper understanding of the importance of hearing health. We believe that hearing plays a vital role in overall wellness, and with Phonak hearing solutions, well-hearing is well-being.
