hearScreen®: smartphone hearing screening solution for schools
“Children who don’t hear well can’t learn well and as a result, can’t perform well in a school environment,” - Prof De Wet Swanepoel.
Undetected hearing loss in children is one of the major barriers to educational success. Although statistics show that 1/10 children may suffer from significant hearing loss, early identification and intervention provide the best opportunity for effective remediation to reduce the negative effects that hearing loss may have in a child’s development.
With this aim in mind, hearX Group has developed a mobile hearing screening solution to provide accessible hearing screening for every learner, anywhere.
