Do you find yourself struggling with unsteady legs, difficulty walking in the dark, or a tendency to lose balance during workouts? In many cases, balance issues are closely related to hearing loss. Fortunately, Chosgo Hearing Aids can improve your balance, reducing the risk of falls.
The Close Connection between Hearing Loss and Balance Issues
Research from Johns Hopkins University in the United States indicates that hearing loss increases the risk of falls. Analyzing data collected from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey between 2001 and 2004, researchers tested 2,017 participants aged 40 to 69 on both hearing and balance. The study found that individuals with mild hearing loss are three times more likely to experience falls than those with normal hearing. With every 10dB increase in hearing loss, the risk of falling rises by 140%.
Researchers suggest two possible reasons for this correlation:
- Hearing loss reduces awareness of the surrounding environment, increasing the risk of stumbling and falling.
- Hearing loss adds to cognitive load, as listening consumes significant brain resources, leaving little to help maintain balance.
How Chosgo Hearing Aids Contribute to Balance Maintenance
Another study conducted by the University of Washington in the U.S. explored "The Impact of Hearing Aids on Postural Stability." Fourteen participants, aged 65 to 91 with hearing loss, underwent standard balance tests with and without wearing hearing aids. Results showed improved balance when wearing hearing aids, indicating that utilizing auditory cues helps maintain stability. This discovery is the first of its kind in similar research.
