A cochlear implant is an electronic hearing device designed to bypass the damaged parts of the inner ear by electrically stimulating the hearing nerve. The nerve then sends a signal to the brain where it is interpreted as sound. Cochlear implants provide an important option for children and adults who gain little or no benefit from hearing aids
Industrial Hearing Test
Hearing damage is a real and unfortunate effect of long-term exposure to loud noise. Noise is a hazard of industrial workers and workers of any occupation who are repeatedly exposed to loud noises. This may include individuals who work in factories, construction sites, mine workers, musicians and airport personnel.
Keeping in view the great need for better Audiological facilities, T maluleke audiology Centre was established to improve the quality of life for the people with hearing difficulties.
We understand the vital role of communication in our day-to-day living, and hearing is the most basic way we communicate. It’s through our hearing, that we enjoy laughter, and conversations with our friends and family.
The benefits of speech therapy go beyond improving a child’s ability to understand and use language. Communication is very important to other areas of development, like cognitive development and social and emotional development.
As the child learns to better express themselves, the benefits can be seen in many other aspects of their life and development
Hearing Aid Styles
T Maluleke speech and audiology center offers a wide range of technology and a host of features are available in each hearing aid style. The cost of hearing aids generally depends on the technology and the number of features the instrument has and not necessarily on the style selected.
Today's digital hearing aids are typically offered in various technology levels, such as basic, entry, advanced, or premium level.
