Nelson Mandela Day screening children for hearing problems
Undetected vision and hearing loss in children is one of the major barriers to educational success. Timely detection is the first step to prevent the devastating effects of hearing problems in kids.
As Nelson Mandela said, “Our children are our greatest treasure. They are our future.” With as many as 1 in 10 children suffering from a hearing problem and up to 60% of these being preventable, early action must be a priority.
Using our world-first hearing screening solution, hearScreen, we were able to screen the children for hearing loss with our low-cost, easy-to-use, clinically-valid product. We are happy to say that the majority of the children has healthy hearing and that those with some hearing issues now have the opportunity to get help.
Our team had such a great day and would like to thank everyone who participated and who contributes in our vision of bringing healthy hearing to everyone, everywhere!
