Readers may remember an international study in the Lancet, reporting that one in three cases of dementia can be prevented if more people looked after their cognitive health throughout their lives.
In the study, middle-aged hearing loss was identified as a major risk to developing dementia. Hearing loss denies people access to cognitively rich environments and can lead to social isolation and depression, leading to a higher risk of cognitive decline.
The study identified that 35% of the risk factors associated with dementia were modifiable, the most prominent being hearing loss which was responsible for 9% of the acceleration of the onset of dementia.

Microsuction is an ear wax removal technique which is safe, comfortable and pain-free. It involves the use of a binocular microscope which provides a clear and magnified view of the ear canal. With such a clear view, a fine low-pressure suction device can be used to remove any ear wax obstructions safely.
So what are the main benefits of microsuction, when compared to more traditional ear wax removals methods such as syringing or ear irrigation?
In January 2013, The Britain Nepal Otology Service (BRINOS) in partnership with BRINOS Ear Health Community Service (BEHCS) started work on the new BRINOS Ear Care Centre (BECC) in Nepalgunj; a remote region, far from the existing facilities in Kathmandu, beyond the southern part of the Himalaya mountain range.
This November, the team were able to move in and start working in the new facility in the new hospital at last! The Ear Care Centre will provide modern facilities for ear surgery and audiology, both for the visiting BRINOS teams and for the Nepalese ear surgeons and Community Ear Assistants who work with BRINOS. All that remains is the completion of the Operating Theatre.
Alta is built on Oticon’s powerful new Inium sound processing platform. Inium’s extended working memory facilitates power-efficient wireless binaural processing that enables the exchange of vital sound information between both ears for a more natural, authentic sound experience.

Reviews of the Intiga Hearing Aids from Real Experiences
The overall sound quality is absolutely beautiful….like I’m not wearing hearing aids at all… just like your normal hearing! Speech is clear. No drawbacks whatsoever! I find it very easy [to follow conversations] in noisy environments. Intiga is so much smaller and lighter than my previous hearing aids. It feels very comfortable and natural.

The Intiga sounds natural, it looks amazing but most of all, it has made communication so much easier. It takes no effort to be part of a conversation at work or even at home with family. It feels like I’ve been switched on again.
