In
the past decade or so, the number of hearing-impaired people in Hong Kong has
been increasing. According to the report “Persons with Disabilities and
Chronic Diseases in Hong Kong”2, the majority of people with
hearing difficulties are elderly people over 70 years old. Therefore, the
increase in the number of hearing- impaired people is related to the increase
in the number of elderly people with an aging population. According to figures
from the World Health Organization (WHO), one in three elderly persons aged 65
or above has hearing loss3. Weak hearing can lead to falling and
emotional instability. The risk of accidents is also high. The problem should
not be ignored.

Dr.
Joannie Yu, audiologist, calls for public’s attention on elderly hearing
problem and to take positive steps. She suggested that we should consult
audiological professional advice when hearing loss symptoms arises. However, to
date, only less than 17% people with hearing loss will wear hearing aids. Even
they choose to wear them, the function of the past hearing aids is not perfect.
In addition to amplifying the voice, it will also amplify the noise. The sound
the user hears may be noisy, or it may make the user suffer from noise nuisance
and it is difficult to wear it for a long time.

It is for this reason that Hong Kong scientist Mr. Cheung Yat Yiu (Danny) established the
EasyHear Hearing Centre4.  EasyHear is the world’s first company
successfully that applied 5G beamforming technology to hearing aids. The technology has significantly improved signal-to-noise
ratio which overcome the annoying loud noise problem that plagues traditional
hearing aids. This breakthrough has brought
noise cancellation to a new era with superb 90% noise reduction. Users can hear
high clarity speech even in noisy environment. Hearing impaired
people can rebuild communication and listen clearly with this ground-breaking
patented technology.
