New iOS App to Help Hearing Disability

Source: University of Essex

Unlike most hearing aids that only amplify sounds to enable hearing, the new innovation created by researchers at the University of Essex is biologically inspired, where users can adjust settings to suit their impairment. The BioAid app is created to help people with hearing loss find the sound frequencies that they are still sensitive to, in order to hear again. The use of a smartphone to create such a technology is also to aid the ease of transfer of the BioAid to the public hands, without having to undergo a hearing test or pay a significant amount for a conventional device.
