Pilot Project in Jordan

In 2013-2014, World Wide Hearing (WWH) completed a Hearing ExpressTM pilot and provided approximately 300 hearing aids.

Stanford University students, developed a special World Wide Hearing (WWH) app for the Android (Samsung) tablet. Information can be entered stored digitally for recording keeping and follow up.

World Wide Hearing (WWH), designed a special toolkit for this project.

They utilized self-programmable hearing aids model “CLIK”, manufactured by EAR-Tech in the United States. CLIK hearing aids are digital, easy to fit and maintain. They offer six different levels of programming. The sound is comfortable and clear. CLIK hearing aids have, as yet, only a limited range of coverage as they do not correct losses above 70 dB.
