Major University hearing study seeks participants

Connect Hearing, with a leading hearing researcher at Ryerson University, seeks participants in the Lower Mainland, Kootenays, South West Ontario and Toronto for a hearing study investigating the factors that can influence better hearing.

All participants will have a hearing test provided at no charge. Qualifying participants may also receive a demo of the latest hearing technology. The data collected from this study will be used to further our understanding of hearing loss and improve life-changing hearing healthcare.

Why research hearing loss?

It is estimated that 46% of people aged 45 to 87 have some degree of hearing loss, but most do not seek treatment right away. In fact, the average person with hearing loss will wait ten years before seeking help. This is because at the beginning stages of hearing loss people often find they can “get by” without help, however as the problem worsens this becomes increasingly harder to do. By studying those people having difficulty in noise or with television, we hope to identify key factors impacting these difficulties and further understand their influence on the treatment process.

Participant Criteria

  • 50 years of age or older
