Cubex Weekly TIP – Open Sound Vs Directionality

On 07, Jun 2018 | In Hearing Technology, Weekly Tip | By Sam

THIS WEEK’S TIP:
OPEN SOUND vs DIRECTIONALITY

 

This week, Adam Shulberg is joined once more by Alison Stone, Audiologist & Training Manager at Oticon, a leading hearing technology company based in Denmark and part of the Eriksholm Research Centre.

Traditionally, hearing technology deals with complex and noisy environments like restaurants by focusing on one sound source at a time, such as one person speaking and reduces all other sounds – speech and environment sounds alike.

On this week’s TIP, Alison talks about a new kind of hearing technology that gives listeners’ natural 360° sound constantly, allowing them to hear and engage with multiple speakers and switch focus whenever they want to.

Cubex Weekly TIP – Improving your hearing can help you remember more.

On 24, May 2018 | In News, Weekly Tip | By Jerusha Shulberg

THIS WEEK’S TIP:
IMPROVING YOUR HEARING CAN HELP YOU REMEMBER MORE.

 

This week, Adam Shulberg is joined again by Alison Stone Audiologist & Training Manager for Oticon, a leading hearing technology company based in Denmark and part of the Eriksholm Research Centre.

There is no doubt that living with a reduction in hearing ability is tiring and it affects our memory. Everyday situations require more effort in order to follow and understand what is being said. The brain has to work much harder to”fill in the gaps” requiring use of more mental resource which leaves less capacity for other important functions. This effortfull and unbalanced distribution of our cognitive capacity can leave us feeling exhausted.

Cubex Weekly TIP – You can measure listening through the eyes

On 18, May 2018 | In Weekly Tip | By Jerusha Shulberg

THIS WEEK’S TIP:
YOU CAN MEASURE LISTENING THROUGH THE EYES

 

This week, Senior Audiologist and MD of Cubex, Adam Shulberg is proud to be joined by Alison Stone, Audiologist & Training Manager at Oticon, a leading hearing technology based company in Denmark and part of the Eriksholm Research Centre.

We know that cognitive load is a silent consequence of hearing loss. With fewer sounds, poorer quality and less information being delivered to the brain, hearing and listening can be just like reading a book where key letters or words are missing. This requires use of long-term memory and our working memory becomes stressed and overloaded making it even harder to focus.

On this week’s TIP, Alison talks about a method used by Oticon and the Eriksholm Research team that measures the level of cognitive load and listening effort through the eyes.

Cognitive Well Being In The Workplace

On 01, May 2018 | In News | By Jerusha Shulberg

According to the Health & Safety Executive, employers have a legal duty to protect their employees from stress at work by completing regular health risk assessments and putting systems in place that promote health and well being in the work place.

Everyday we apply so much cognitive capacity just to make sense of the multitudes of information that we are bombarded with especially when working in fast paced cities like London. For the most part we are unaware of the amount of cognitive resource and the mental effort involved in trying to keep up with the pace and demands of modern working life and this can be a highly stressful experience for many. In fact, stress, anxiety and depression account for an estimated 37% of all work related ill health cases and 45% of all working days lost due to ill health (1).

Stress at work can be caused by number of factors including excessive work pressures, poor working conditions, interpersonal relationships, a lack of support, increased workload and of course, personal events. Irrespective of the cause, stress can be damaging to a person’s wellbeing and their career but it also reduces productivity at work, impacting on workplace performance and quality of work (2) and so, it is important to recognise this and strive to create a healthy working environment.
