Introducing the worlds first hearing aid with Biometric Calibration – Phonak Virto™ B

On 11, Oct 2017 | In Hearing Technology | By Jerusha Shulberg

First came the fingerprint, then the retina scan. Now, it’s all about the ear! These distinct parts of our bodies are unique to every individual and because they are unique, they can be used for biometrics. But what exactly is biometrics?

 

Each ear is unique, each ear hears differently

Biometrics is the measurement of people’s physical and behavioral characteristics that are mainly used for identification and access control. It’s something we’re all becoming accustomed to as innovation and personalization moves forward. For example, many smartphones have an integrated finger scan; biometric passports are standard today- even photographs can be sorted according to facial recognition. And now, this technology has made its way to hearing.

How Cognitive Function is vital to the field of Audiology

On 29, Aug 2017 | In News | By Cubex Concierge

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.

On 07, Dec 2016 | In Hearing Technology | By Jerusha Shulberg

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!

Yoga comes to Cubex

On 08, Dec 2015 | In Clinical Mindfulness | By Jerusha Shulberg

We all experience a variety of communication situations over the day, some more challenging than others. As the day progresses, the mental exhaustion imposed by a hearing loss may be the reason many people shy away from challenging communication situations like a social gathering or dinner at a restaurant.

In addition to using technology to help reduce the cognitive load presented by hearing loss, we recommend regular exercise and maintaining a healthy diet to give you the energy to perform all day, everyday.

We are excited to announce that Jerusha Shulberg, Senior Audiologoist and Cubex Training Co-ordinator, recently qualified as a Brogi under the supervision of Yoga and Fitness expert and founder of Broga®, Matt Miller. Jerusha looks forward to continuing her growth in this yoga practice and introducing our first series of Yoga pop-ups in conjunction with leading Yoga, Broga® and fitness experts in London starting next Spring.
