Personal Sound Amplification Products (PSAPs)
Personal Sound Amplification Products, or PSAPS, are wearable electronic products that are intended to amplify sounds. PSAPS are NOT hearing aids. PSAPS use a lot of the same technology as hearing aids, but they are not programmable and are not intended to correct hearing loss. Rather, they help you hear quiet sounds even better.
Purchase is easy. PSAPs are ready-to-wear right out of the box. The main concern expressed by audiologists and hearing health professionals: that in the rush to get low-cost hearing help, a potentially debilitating condition might go unexamined. A professional hearing test can determine if your hearing loss is simply age-related or the result of another medical cause, which can range from ear wax to a tumor. Hearing tests are required in our office in order to obtain PSAPS.
