Stavros Basseas and David Green decided to do something about the millions of people in the world who need hearing help but have limited funds and no access to services. Here in the US, we have an extensive network of medical and hearing health professionals to address the need for hearing aids plus hearing aid batteries are available at any corner pharmacy. This supply chain just doesn’t exist in emerging nations. But what they typically do have are cell phone towers and at least some access to cell phones. This was a good jumping off point to begin the project. 

I had the honor of representing Sound World Solutions at the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) 2015 convention June25-June 28, 2015. This year, the convention was held in St. Louis, Missouri at the beautiful Doubletree Union Station hotel, a converted train station built in 1894 when public buildings were truly grand. Sound World Solutions participated with a booth on the exhibit floor where we displayed our product line and interacted with attendees. We attended the HLAA convention in Austin, Texas last year, so there was familiarity with our personal sound amplifiers, but the announcement of the Companion - our first FDA registered hearing aid - resulted in a significant increase in interest and conversation. 

You’ve decided it’s time to act on your hearing loss. Now what do you do?
