After the preparation of the acoustic prosthesis, the device is programmed, always referring to the specific needs and requirements of the patient.
This is because hearing aids are digital devices that are programmed and adapted through specific computer systems. Proper programming must be done for a patient to adapt to the hearing aid as soon as possible and to obtain long-term hearing recovery.
It should also be noted that for all persons equipped with a hearing aid, there is a period of ‘Acoustic Rehabilitation’, which lasts up to three months and refers to the person’s time needed to adjust to the device. During this phase, the device volume is gradually adjusted and increased until the optimal level is reached for the patient. This procedure is very important especially for those who have lost their hearing years. Recovery of hearing ability is gradual and consistent. In this way, the hearing aid user can gain good quality of hearing and after the adaptation phase, being no longer socially isolated.
