Two-thirds of adults 70 and older, and four-fifths of adults older than 85 have age-related hearing loss. We don’t need to tell you that’s an enormous proportion of older Americans.
More worrisome than hearing loss, though, for older adults (and their loved ones), is the risk of having cognitive decline and dementia as they age. Yet it’s been proven that untreated hearing loss plays a big role in both, and can increase their risks.
Studies show that treating hearing loss, on the other hand, is one factor that can contribute to the prevention or delay of dementia, and that wearing hearing aids reduces the risk of cognitive decline associated with hearing loss.
Our revolutionary new hearing aid, Livio AI, was designed to help with both worries. Not only is it our best sounding and best performing hearing aid ever to help treat hearing loss, it’s also the first wearable device that helps you track your brain and body health so you can set and meet physical and cognitive health goals.
