Visual Speech Mapping
VSM provides verification for hearing aid fittings to ensure that maximum benefit is received from the device. It is now possible to “see” the amount of amplification that is reaching the ear. Adjustments to digital hearing aids are made at the time of the visit.
In addition, VSM allows us to simulate hearing loss for family members or friends for better understanding of the way the hearing-impaired person hears everyday sounds. For this reason, when possible, bring someone to the appointment with you.
