Calling for Empathy!

Hank, Dirk, Hazel, and The Judge

Hank calls for empathy!

 

On behalf of our veterans who use hearing aids, Hank calls for empathy!

 

Imagine having served, selflessly, in our armed forces for 2 to 40 years of your life - protecting our freedoms.  You may have seen combat and been exposed to terrifyingly loud cannons, gun blasts, and other weapons systems, roars of a fighter jets, jet engines, vehicles, other aircraft, watercraft -- and loud industrial-type activities.

 

Now add some of the physical limitations Dirk describes below, senior issues Hazel talks about below and challenging ear canals The Judge talks about.  Can you imagine?

 

Now add visual impairment so it’s harder to see, too.

These conditions limit the amount of time you’d have to insert your hearing aids before you become anxious and frustrated. 

 

It’s a bit more difficult than it would be for a young person, isn’t it?

Gruv Button Technology™ makes hearing aids so much easier to insert for veterans because it’s ergonomically-designed for the fingertip.  It improves the manageability and effectiveness of the receiver because you gain better access to and control over the receiver.  You’re better able to manipulate the receiver and aim it in the proper direction as they insert it into their ear canal.

   

Please sign our petition for Hank.

Dirk calls for empathy!

 

On behalf of people with physical limitations who use hearing aids, Dirk calls for empathy!

 

Imagine having difficulty moving your elbows, shoulders or cannot straighten all of the fingers - or you have arthritis, stiffness, diminished sensation, dexterity issues or tremor.  Can you imagine?

  

Now add visual impairment so it’s harder to see, too.

 

These conditions limit the amount of time you’d have to insert your hearing aids before you become anxious and frustrated.

Hazel calls for empathy!

 

On behalf of seniors who use hearing aids, Hazel calls for empathy!

 

Does Hazel remind you of anyone in your family?  She’s sharp as a tack but not as strong or coordinated as she used to be.  We love her!

    

She wants to engage with her family and friends, but she struggles with physical limitations and simply cannot control or manipulate the manufacturer’s speaker. 

She is FRUSTRATED!  She saw this

on Facebook wanted this posted

The Judge calls for empathy!

 

On behalf of people with challenging ear canals who use hearing aids, The Judge calls for empathy!

 

Referring to the graphic below, The Judge points out that, contrary to the anatomical drawings showing them as simple and straight, ear canals are often angled, include bends, and can be obstructed by  cartilage.  These features make it more difficult to get the manufacturer’s speaker into the canal sufficiently deep.  

He wants the hearing aid manufacturers to be aware of the Each Ear Canal Identification Guide and how it can help hearing aid users understand the correct direction in which to aim their receivers.

  

The Judge also wants the manufacturers to heed the Calls for Empathy from Hank, Dirk, Hazel and himself.  He insists on reality, responsibility, and justice.

Gruv Button Technology™ makes hearing aids so much easier to insert for people with challenging ear canals because it’s ergonomically-designed for the fingertip.  It improves the manageability and effectiveness of the receiver because you gain better access to and control over the receiver.  You’re better able to manipulate the receiver and aim it in the proper direction as they insert it into their ear canal.
