The world has become so advanced today, especially in the field of engineering and technology. Gone are those days where birth defects and disabilities incurred in life becomes crippling and hinders one from living a normal life.

In medical science, these developments and advancements have allowed even the persons with disabilities to live life usually just like the rest as if there’s no problem, to begin with. This applies even to the deaf who needs hearing aids.

Thanks to the wonders of continuous innovation, hearing aids have helped a lot of people with hearing problems, and here are some of the state-of-the-art enhancements that will make it even more wonderful:

  1. Wireless connectivity

With everything going wireless and smart nowadays, it’s no surprise that hearing aids are also adapting to technological change. Some of them have the ability to pair with your smartphone via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) in order to stream audio directly to the device, which makes it easy to answer calls, listen to music, or watch videos.

  1. Advanced AI technology

AI has proven itself useful over the years, and even in the medical field, it has shown its worth. By using AI in hearing aids, better noise cancellation and filtering is achieved, and can even make use of machine learning to tailor perfectly to the user.

  1. Sensors

With transistors and chips going smaller and smaller down to the thickness of a single hair strand, more and more sensors can be packed in tiny devices. Some sensors in hearing aids allow measurement of body activities, health data, and even your fall counts to detect balance issues.

  1. Automatic translation

With processors getting faster despite growing smaller, some hearing aids can tap into the power of these integrated circuits and automatically translate between languages. It’s only a matter of time before experts can perfect speech recognition technology and artificial neural networks.
