THIS WEEK’S TIP: A NEW DRUG IS IN DEVELOPMENT THAT MAY RESTORE HEARING LOSS
This week Mr Adam Shulberg, MD and Senior Audiologist of Cubex, talks to Cubex Audiologist and honorary lecturer at the UCL Ear Institute, Dr Saima Rajasingam, about a new clinical trial looking at treatment that may improve hearing.
The trial, known as REGAIN, is being carried out by the UCL Ear Institute and looks at treating hearing loss by re-growing hair cells using a drug called a Gamma Secretase Inhibitor. The REGAIN study aims to test how safe the drug is and if it affects the ability to hear and is currently open to participants in the UK.

THIS WEEK’S TIP: BIOMETRIC CALIBRATION
This week Adam Shulberg talks about biometric calibration in hearing aid technology
Biometrics is a science we’re all becoming accustomed to in our daily lives as technological innovation and personalisation moves forward, such as face recognition on smart phones and biometric passports. And now, this technology has made its way to hearing aid solutions.

We are excited to share our recent interview with The Marylebone Journal. Deputy Editor, Viel Richardson caught up with Cubex Audiologist, Jerusha Shulberg to talk about cognitive function and the reasons why it is vital to understand its role in audiology especially when treating hearing loss.
As there is currently no way to completely restore a persons hearing when they experience a sensory neural hearing loss, hearing technology is used as a means to deliver sound to the brain, but sometimes, patients may still find it difficult to navigate their auditory world and to communicate with ease. This is where understanding the cognitive component becomes crucial.
As Cubex Audiologists, we are mindful that in order for us to be able help individuals make positive lifestyle changes we need to build a cognitive reserve, improve hearing and strengthen the ability to communicate.
It is vital to understand not simply what you are hearing, but also how well you process the complex information our brain receives from our surroundings and so we have developed a relaxed and innovative way to truly understand a persons hearing ability and unique cognitive skill sets. This approach allows us to provide our patients with a real awareness of their current state of living and enables us to provide the best possible support and the greatest improvement in their communication skills.Read the full article >

Apple’s latest change to remove the headphone jack and replace the traditional plug-in ear phones with wireless AirPods has sparked some conversation. The interesting thing for us is the potential to change the way of thinking in the hearing industry due to this technology shift. The hearing industry have been using this type of technology in their hearing aids for a long time! Could forward-thinking companies like Apple be making connected hearing devices the thing to wear?
Apple’s latest change to remove the headphone jack and replace the traditional plug-in ear phones with wireless AirPods has sparked some considerable conversation. AirPods could change the way we use headphones with its instant ability to connect to your iPhone as soon as it is turned on, to adjusting the volume of playback music, changing a song, getting directions by activating Siri or making a call wirelessly. We have been using this type of advanced wireless technology to make life easier for people with hearing loss for some time! Could forward-thinking companies like Apple be making connected hearing devices the ‘thing’ to wear?
