Henley ear wax removal
Henley ear wax removal conducted at the Henley Hearing Clinic. If you are experiencing excessive ear wax or are having issues with your ears being blocked we can help. We are a fully accredited and regulated ear wax removal centre for the whole of Bucks. Using Microsuction to remove excessive ear wax is painless and very quick. If you prefer the older technique of ear wax removal using water irrigation (ear syringing), we can do that too!

BIHIMA Round Table Event Focused on Connection Between Hearing Loss and Dementia
A cross-sector summit was held last month, bringing together experts to discuss the connection between hearing loss as a risk factor in developing dementia, as well as highlighting the preventative role of hearing technology. The round table event was convened by the British and Irish Hearing Instrument Manufacturers Association (BIHIMA) on February 28, 2019 at the Royal College of General Practitioners in London, BIHIMA announced.
A series of podcasts of the event’s discussion has been created in order to spread greater understanding, available for download here.

The event united audiologists, research scientists, and representatives from the media and charity sectors, to share knowledge and develop strategies to get the crucial message out into the public arena, so the proven link between the two conditions is taken seriously by individuals and policymakers.
There is growing evidence of the connection between the two conditions, including a Lancet study which showed that midlife hearing loss may account for up to 9.1% of preventable dementia cases worldwide and is a modifiable risk factor in developing the condition1. Dr Sergi Costafreda Gonzalez, co-author of the study, attended the Round Table.
There is less research, however, into the mitigating benefits of hearing aids. A University of Manchester study2 showed the rate of age-related cognitive decline is 75% less following the adoption of hearing devices. Co-author of this study, Dr Asri Maharani, shared details of these findings on the day. Further studies are now underway but this remains an undeveloped area, and so last month’s forum called publicly for further trials.
The panel also called on policymakers to make this area a funding priority. As new data emerges which proves the impact of hearing aids in preventing dementia, this will provide greater economic argument for making hearing technology more available to those at risk of cognitive decline.

“The better we understand cognitive decline and why hearing aid use helps, the better we can design intervention,” said Dr Helene Amieva, author of the 25-year study, “Death, Depression, Disability, and Dementia Associated with Self-reported Hearing Problems.”3
The panel also strongly recommended a cross-sector approach, whereby hearing loss is understood as part of a wider discussion which links with both neuroscience and social issues around isolation and wellbeing in the aging population.
“Dementia is a condition which affects 47 million people globally and is fast becoming a social care crisis. There is no time to waste in understanding the role of hearing technology which could stem the tide of the disease, and in educating people about looking after both their hearing and cognitive health,” said the BIHIMA Chairman, Paul Surridge.

Varta to Unveil Power One Evolution at 2019 AAA Show
The significance of the quality of a tailor-made power supply is emphasized by Stiftung Warentest, a German consumer test organization. In the current test, VARTA Microbattery GmbH—a company supplying retail and OEM batteries for electronics companies—announced that it came out on top among the 14 hearing aid batteries tested in the “most important types,” 312 and 10.
“The test winner rating has motivated us to intensify our research efforts to develop an even better product,” said Torsten Schmerer, general manager, healthcare, at VARTA Microbattery GmbH.
The result of these efforts is the power one EVOLUTION. The newly developed product as well as the test-winning batteries and the full range of batteries and rechargeable batteries were showcased on March 22-23, 2019 at the 41st Congrès des Audioprothésistes in the Palais des Congrès de Paris (UNSAF). They will also be showcased on March 27-29, 2019 at the Congress of the American Academy of Audiology (AAA) in Columbus, USA, Stand 630.

According to VARTA Microbattery, it has developed the power one EVOLUTION in response to the needs of consumers who require reliable batteries with longer operating times. The power one EVOLUTION zinc-air battery is based on the Thin Foil Technology (TFT) and is said to be characterized by a “very high energy density.” Moreover, its capacity is said to be even higher than that of the tried-and-tested hearing aid batteries by VARTA Microbattery, resulting in a longer service life. The service life of the type 312 is reportedly up to 15% longer. The company says that field tests have shown that “nine out of ten customers would recommend the battery because of the significantly longer operating times.”

“The limited space in hearing aids is the reason why the power supply can only be increased by improving the technology of the hearing aid. Our expertise is based on the synergy of extensive material research, many years of experience in cell development, and our own production equipment technology,” said Schmerer.
More detailed information on the power one products is available at the fair stands or online at: www.powerone-batteries.com.
