A recent American study by the Veterans Administration indicated that elderly hearing instrument users were using their wireless communication system just over 6 hours per day only one year after the initial fitting. The group studied felt less stigmatized when using their wireless system than when using their hearing instruments only, presumably because the wireless system improved their communication and their selfconfidence. The average age in this group was 79 years!
