Hearing Aid Use

While 95% of people with hearing loss can be helped with hearing aids, only 23% currently use them (Hearing Review). Only 12% of US kids with significant hearing loss use an aid (Better Hearing Institute). Of those who own a hearing aid, one out of six do not use it at all (US News & World Report) and about one out of three do not wear them daily.
