DeafHear DeafHear to participate in new Flex:trial™  hearing aid programme

DeafHear has been selected and certified to participate in the Flex:trial programme, an initiative launched by leading hearing aid manufacturer Unitron. Flex:trial™ gives consumers the opportunity to try new hearing aids in their everyday life without any upfront cost or commitment. At the end of the trial period, participants may choose to purchase hearing aids, or they may return the Flex:trial™ hearing aids without any cost or further obligation.

“We’re pleased and honoured to be one of a relative few hearing care providers from across the country chosen to participate in the Flex:trial™ programme,” said Tasso Papadopoulos, DeafHear Lead Audiologist. “More importantly, we see this as a tremendous benefit to individuals who experience a hearing loss”.

Although designed for anyone who has a hearing loss, he believes Flex:trial™ will particularly appeal to individuals with a hearing loss who have been reluctant to consider hearing aids due to uncertainty about what they are getting for their investment.

In addition, this programme offers a great option for current hearing aid wearers who may be interested in experiencing the latest technological advances and new features.

“Flex:trial™ differs from other hearing aid trial programmes, which require consumers to pay for hearing aids before the trial begins and then seek a refund if they’re not satisfied” explained Tasso. “Essentially, we are enabling people to experience the hearing aids at home and in other familiar environments, while removing all upfront costs for participants.”

Anyone who suspects they may have a hearing loss and is interested in this new programme can call DeafHear at free phone number 1800 256257 to learn more about the Flex:trial programme or to schedule a Flex:trial consultation.

DeafHear has a nationwide network of clinics where Flex:trial™ is available.
