For more than 30 years we deal with the topic
“Better hearing and understanding in old age”
More and more people have hearing problems at the age of 40, especially in critical situations. One of the reasons for this is that the basic functions for understanding in the brain diminish.
With our training method, you can significantly improve these functions through exercises and thus understand better even in critical situations.
Our goal is to achieve maximum results for people with hearing problems with the least possible effort. We succeeded with SimoVital.
In Germany alone there are about 14 million people with hearing problems. From the age of 50, every third person is affected. Since hearing loss gradually changes with age, most people miss the way to the ENT doctor or the hearing care professional in good time. Experience shows that in many cases people go this way about 10 to 15 years too late.
Not only does hearing diminish with age, but the processing speed in the brain becomes increasingly worse.
The following text by Prof. Gerhard Hesse, University of Witten-Herdecke after a study on deafness:
“Deafness in old age can be defined according to this study as a consequence of a loss of function of hair cells of the inner ear as well as deficits in further central hearing processing. Some people with hearing loss even have a completely normal inner ear function. It can be assumed that the majority of hearing loss that occurs in the elderly is due in most cases to degeneration of hair cells in the inner ear as well as to impairment of central functions of hearing treatment. For the vast majority of the hearing impairments in old age, hair cell damage of the inner ear as well as changes in neuronal hearing processing are responsible.
It will and should be the task of the ENT specialists to understand hearing in its entire dimension, both in terms of the middle and inner ear functions as well as the other central processing processes. ”
The hearing is checked by audiometry.
The processing speed of the basic functions in the brain, which are crucial for listening comprehension, they can now measure with SimoVital. The 3 most important basic functions for a good listening comprehension are:
In contrast to peripheral hearing, we can train the basic functions of listening even to old age. With the SimoVital app, anyone at home with a 15-20 minute daily workout can significantly improve their score, ultimately leading to better listening comprehension.
The training of the individual functions can be carried out comfortably at home with their smartphone. For this they need the SimoVital app, which they load on their smartphone –
and you’re ready to go.
They can control themselves via the app and thus constantly improve their training performance.
The measure of the ability to place two rapidly successive auditory sensory stimuli in an order, that is, in an order.
Important for the precise segmentation of auditory stimuli.
It is measured by two consecutive clicks in the headphones whose order is to be determined.
The ability to perceive rapid pitch differences between two consecutive tones.
Important for the recognition of vowels and speech melody.
It is measured by two different tones in the headphones whose order is to be determined.
Measures the ability to locate the only pitch that differs in height from age-appropriate auditory pattern recognition from a sequence of three tones.
Important for converting the speech melody into information.
It is measured by following two identically high and one different tone whose position is determined.
