Hearing Screening Kiosks

Introducing InnerScopes In-Store Quick Self-Check Hearing-Screening Kiosk, and Online Hearing-Screening Check

The in-store Quick Self-Check Hearing Screening Kiosk (the "Hearing Kiosk") broadens awareness among a wide cross-section of the public about the importance of maintaining hearing health. Giving the public FREE and Easy access to quickly self-check their hearing helps them establish a baseline and understanding of their hearing profile to make an informed decision about their hearing health and/or treatment options, preferably sooner than later. In addition, the Hearing Kiosk provides information and recommendations (if hearing loss is detected) about Direct-to-Consumer FDA-Registered Hearing Aid Devices and/or Personal Sound Amplifiers Products (PSAPs) offered by InnerScope Hearing Technologies. InnerScope Hearing Technologies ("InnerScope") is a provider of Direct-to-Consumer ("DTC") hearing aid products, assistive hearing devices, and hearing health-related products and services ("Hearing Products").

The Hearing Kiosk provides an end-to-end hearing solution for customers. Once the customer completes the Quick Hearing Check test, the customer (if warranted by the test results) will be directed to purchase Hearing Products either online or at the retailers' store where the Hearing Kiosk is located.

The Hearing Kiosk offers a Quick (approx. 3 minutes), Accurate, FREE, and EASY way to regularly self-check one's hearing and provides important hearing health education and hearing loss awareness. In addition, InnerScope provides for the retailer location customer brochures and bi-monthly reporting services of data collected per user for each Hearing Kiosk.

The Hearing Kiosk is very similar to the Online Hearing check offered here at MyHearIQ.com (at https://www.MyHearIQ.com/pages/MyHearIQ-Hearing-Screening) which makes it now very convenient to test your hearing often and detect a loss as early as possible.   

Untreated Hearing Loss – A Ever-Growing Global Hearing Health Crisis

Hearing loss represents one of the greatest unresolved health challenges worldwide. In the United States and Canada, at least 70 million people of all ages (predominantly over 40) are afflicted yet remain untreated. In the United States alone, hearing loss is the 3rd most common health condition following heart disease and arthritis.  However, hearing loss being one of the most common health issues in the world, it is also one of the most treatable.

The majority are unaware of the causes (there are many, including several prevalent disease states, noise exposure, aging, widely used ototoxic medications) or risks of their chronic condition – compromises to lifestyle, concerns about safety, and in some cases, a significant contributor to medical disorders. For example, adults with untreated hearing loss experience a 30-40% faster decline in cognitive abilities and are up to 5 times more likely to develop dementia.

With the lack of hearing healthcare education and awareness of the overall health and cognitive consequences of living with untreated hearing loss, the hearing industry has yet to develop effective ways of engaging and educating the largest part of the target segment.  Unfortunately, the result of the current hearing healthcare delivery system has left millions of people with hearing problems untreated or undetected, mainly due high cost of hearing aids/services and lack of accessibility to hearing screenings and hearing aid products. In addition, those who ultimately seek a hearing treatment (less than 20%) usually take 7-10 years to do so - too late usually for preventative or cost-effective rehabilitative strategies to take hold.
