Hearing loss is a condition that affects many worldwide. It can impair your interaction with others, which leads to feelings of isolation, and general frustration in the lack of options. When you need reading glasses, you can purchase them nearly anywhere, even at the grocery store. They are so cheap, you can afford to buy multiple pairs. It doesn't require a doctor or a prescription; you simply know you have the correct strength when you try them on and can see clearly.
With hearing aids, traditionally it requires multiple appointments, covering financing options, dealing with high-pressure sales tactics, and high costs that are steadily increasing. Hearing aids are generally not covered by health insurance and can cost thousands of dollars.
Onebridge-us has developed a range of user fitted over the counter hearing aids, which are intended for mild to moderate hearing loss with adjustable volume. These new user devices are available without costly and time-consuming doctors appointments, out of pocket costs that are astronomical because they aren't covered by insurance and a general feeling that in order to have their hearing corrected, they need to finance a device that costs upward of a thousand dollars.
With the average price of a professionally fitted hearing aid, including the initial and follow up appointment, being $2,372.00, many are looking forward to the user fitting hearing aids being mass manufactured and being widely available for purchase.

Why anyone with hearing loss can benefit from a device like Onebridge-us
As we mentioned earlier, many people are mistakenly embarrassed about hearing loss. However, hearing loss can have substantial negative side effects on your life. The good news is that using a hearing aid can counter those negative effects and offer several benefits you might not even realize:
✅ Increased lifespan – According to Oxford Journals, a team of Icelandic researchers discovered the mortality rate for elderly people with untreated hearing loss is higher than that of people with hearing loss who wear hearing aids.
✅ The Alzheimer’s connection – Believe it or not, there is a direct connection between hearing loss and dementia. While this connection is not fully understood, it is documented. For every 10 decibels of hearing loss the risk of dementia grows by 27%. This danger might be mitigated with the use of a hearing aid.
✅ A better quality of life – Despite the common resistance to admitting hearing loss, several studies reveal that once people with hearing loss start using a hearing aid the quality of their social lives improves dramatically.
