CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

"Thank you to all for your wonderful support. I have enjoyed introducing hearScreen to Tanzania, to The School of St Jude and to the wider community. Over 300 students have had access to hearScreen and hearTest."

- Glenys Abrahams Teacher for the deaf

the School of St Jude

"hearScreen, an innovative smartphone app developed at the University of Pretoria has been validated and deployed as a school and community based health screening system to address needs in many underserved regions of South Africa."

- Dr Cara Hollander

Professor at University of Texas at Dallas

"With hearScreen® we were able to screen the hearing of over 15 000 children and adults in the greater Tshwane area. Our hearing screening project extended hearing healthcare services to ECD centres, schools, home visits, clinics and hospitals. Five underserved communities were empowered with this tool that allowed integration into existing health programs, contributing to increased impact and awareness about hearing loss within the communities."

- Tirelo Bosha

Community projects leader

"hearScreen® technology has been used to screen the hearing of over 6 600 children in the lower-income community of Tembisa. This tool allowed us to conduct community-based hearing and vision screening at local ECD centres and primary schools. We are happy to share that because of hearScreen® we were able to identify and help a 13 year old girl with moderate-severe hearing loss with a pair of hearing aids, advocating for successful development going forward."

- Tembisa

Community projects leader

"Our screening program in Philippi was able to screen over 1000 kids in five days in five different schools. With hearX’s technology we would be able to screen 45 000 children in a school year. Our screening identified 72 children who needed urgent follow-ups, and it worked so well that several groups have contacted me to replicate our project. We owe you and your team a great deal of thanks."

hearScreen® smartphone hearing screening solution for schools
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.
Action against poverty - Mandela day 2019

On the 18th of June, the hearX Group team had the privilege to visit Laerskool Generaal Beyers for Nelson Mandela Day. We celebrated this very special day by screening the hearing of over 100 school children using our hearScreen® technology.
Government support for ECD screening is vital for academic success
Sensory impairments have a huge impact on childhood development and academic success. In low and middle income countries (LMICs), early detection services are inaccessible due to prohibitive costs and lack of trained personnel.
