Three Tips for Exercising with Hearing Aids
Do Not Lose Them
Hearing aids are an investment. Purchase accessory hearing aids sleeves, clips, or ties to catch them if they happen to fall out. If you prefer more intense exercise, consult with you hearing professional about custom molded hearing aids.
Although modern hearing aids are designed to repel moisture it is best to keep them as dry as possible to prevent unnecessary humidity and bacterial growth. Wearing sweat bands and keeping a towel handy will help to keep you dry throughout your workout.
At night make sure you are using a charger that acts as a dehumidifier. If you are using a hearing aid with a removable battery, take the battery out at night to let them dry. Consult with your hearing professional if your hearing aid needs maintenance.
