Affordable Hearing Aids Crafted by Georgia Tech Inventors

July 17, 2019
Source: Georgia Tech Research Corporation

Developers at Georgia Tech created a low-cost and self-fitting hearing aid in part to address limited access to audiologists in rural and resource-poor environments. The device was created with the potential to be put together by the user, which allows for the widespread dissemination of the hearing aid and “easy repair and maintenance.” The inventors at Georgia Tech released the platform as open source, allowing other researchers to access the technology as well as participate in contributing software and hardware improvements. The low-cost hearing aid is available for $15 and can be used with household/electronic batteries. For further information about this technology, please visit the web link to this article, below.
