I N T E G R I T Y – H O N E S T Y – T R U S T Hear the Sounds of We offer hearing technology that fits any lifestyle and budget without sacrificing the quality you deserve. Smart New Sound Chip Brings in the Talk, Screens Out The Noise... Complimentary Demonstrations & Consultations: March 13th-15th Hearing correction has just been revolutionized due to a tiny new device that can be programmed to amplify only missing consonant sounds, stimulating the high frequency hair cells and ignoring the rest. The brain of this smart new device is a microprocessor chip that analyzes and clarifies sound according to its frequency. Using a technology called Live Speech Mapping, the specialist adjusts the high frequencies until fricative sounds like F, S, Th, T, P, and K are restored, resulting in improved sound clarity. The prescription is set as you watch and listen. This new technology is available exclusively at our location! Or book an appointment online at Chris Healey, HIS Edward Granger, HIS Local Provider www.whiteshearinglincoln.com The ear drum is connected to the first of three tiny bones. These bones are hinged and each causes the one next to it to move. Hearing Problem #2 The three tiny bones of your inner ear conduct sound between your ear drum and your cochlea. Otosclerosis is the calcification of these bones, resulting in conductive hearing loss. About 10% of people have this type of loss. This movement vibrates against the oval window in your cochlea, sending sound waves through this snail shaped organ. Hearing Problem #3 The cochlea is a snail-shaped organ containing thousands of living hair cells called stereocilia. A condition known as Sensorineural hearing loss (nerve type hearing loss) occurs when any of the hair cells become damaged. Inside the cochlea are thousands of microscopic hair cells called Stereocilia, and these hair cells sense the motion of sound waves. About 90% of hearing loss is this type. A new hearing computer has now been released that is programmed specifically for the frequencies of hair cells that are damaged, resulting in improved speech understanding. Consonants like S, T, K, and P, are sensed in the initial section of the cochlea (shown in red). Medium speech tones are picked up in the mid section (shown in yellow). The low tones of speech are picked up in the last section (shown in blue). When the hair cells move, they send an electrical impulse through the Eighth Nerve to your brain. Then you hear sound! Sound Waves Inside cochlea Living Hair Cells Detect Sound Waves Nerves Send Sound Signals To The Brain itory Audf the Cort Bra o in ex (402) 261-2848 The eardrum is located at the end of your ear canal. Your ear drum catches sound waves, vibrates, and begins a chain reaction. Your eardrum is connected to the first of three bones. We will check to ensure your eardrum is healthy. oT T 1405 N Cotner Blvd, #303 Lincoln, NE 68505 Sound Reaches Your Eardrum, which vibrates, starting a chain reaction. r ve March 13-15! The ear canal’s job is to funnel sound to your ear drum. Sometimes the canal becomes plugged with wax, which mimics a hearing loss because it blocks sound from reaching your eardrum. Use of a cotton swab will pack wax even more. We will check for impacted wax with a video ear camera to see if this is a problem. Ne Special Event with Hearing Expert Chris Healey Hearing Problem #1 How your hearing works: sound enters your ear canal through the air. he B ra in If You Could Unroll The Cochlea’s Tube In a healthy cochlea, all hair cells are alive and standing upright. As sound waves move through the fluid within the cochlea, each hair cell fires and sends an electrical impulse through the Eighth Nerve to the brain. healthy Hearing Problem #4 Tinnitus is the phantom sensation of ringing in the ears. It is the result of damaged or misfiring nerves between the cochlea and the brain. A specialist will identify the tone of your tinnitus and demo how the hearing computer may reduce it. Low Tones Medium Tones High Tones i sh s a j u k p e f th m o g r Vowel Sounds Fricative Sounds damaged Damaged hair cells don’t fire properly and some sounds (fricatives and high tones) are not transmitted to the brain. Hair cell damage is a natural part of aging. It can be caused by moderate sounds over long periods, loud sounds over short periods, or even by prescriptions.
