Our Services | Swindon Hearing Specialists
We offer custom made solutions to provide greater protection against the damaging effects of excessive noise.
Individuals who are exposed to high levels of noise, especially over extended periods of time, are at risk of experiencing hearing damage or hearing loss. Examples of these individuals may include, but are not limited to, Industrial Workers, Musicians, Motorsports Enthusiasts, Agriculture Workers, Events Staff, DIY Enthusiasts, as well as Military and Armed Forces.
Noise-induced hearing damage occurs when the sensitive structures in the inner ear, including hair cells and nerve pathways, are subjected to excessive noise levels, causing them to become damaged or destroyed.
Health and Well-Being:
- Hearing Damage: Prolonged exposure to high levels of noise can lead to permanent hearing loss or other auditory impairments.
- Stress and Mental Health: Noise pollution is linked to increased stress, anxiety, and sleep disturbances, which can have adverse effects on mental health and overall well-being.
- Cardiovascular Health: Chronic noise exposure has been associated with cardiovascular problems, including hypertension and an increased risk of heart disease.
Quality of Life:
- Sleep Disturbances: Noise can disrupt sleep patterns, leading to fatigue, reduced cognitive function, and decreased overall quality of life.
- Productivity: Noise pollution can decrease productivity in workplaces, schools, and other settings where concentration and focus are essential.
- Social Activities: Excessive noise can limit the ability to engage in leisure activities, social interactions, and community events.
Safety and Communication:
- Auditory Masking: Background noise can mask important sounds, such as emergency sirens, alarms, and verbal warnings, jeopardising safety.
- Communication: High noise levels can hinder effective communication, leading to misunderstandings and potential safety hazards.
- Healthcare Costs: Noise-related health issues, such as hearing loss and stress-related disorders, can lead to increased healthcare costs not usually covered by the NHS.
This is why choosing the right hearing protection is vital for protecting your hearing, but doing so requires a comprehensive approach that considers the specific context and goals. To do this the specific noise protection solutions needed will depend on the environment, type of noise, and the level of protection required.
In fact, here at Swindon Hearing our hearing protection includes CENS Digital ProFlex. This next generation hearing protection is lightweight, unobtrusive and comfortable, making them a great alternative choice from traditional ear muffs.
Some of the key features include; wide-dynamic-range compression, HD sound enhancement, dedicated power button, digital push button, alongside a low battery warning and passive modules.
Passive Hearing Protection modules are devices designed to reduce or block out the intensity of sound entering the ears. They work without any active electronic components or power sources, relying on their physical design and materials to attenuate sound.
All of our hearing protection products comply with the latest British Standards and are made using medical-grade silicone for added comfort. They can be supplied in a wide range of colours and styles to suit whatever you need.
