      Understanding user needs

      Before you can develop a technology to help someone continue getting the most out of life, you need to understand their needs – and wants. These user insights are fundamental to developing technical solutions for people with deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss.

      Understanding the needs of people confronting deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss – and finding practical, technological solutions – is at the heart of our technology initiative.

      Our unique insight into people’s needs – and understanding of how well existing technology addresses these needs – aided by our research panel and active supporters, allows us to focus research effort where it’s most needed.

      If you’re a manufacturer we can help you improve your technology; if you’re a developer, we’ll pinpoint the gaps in the market, prime for new solutions.

      Contact us through our Request for Support form, or email us on technology@hearingloss.org.uk to find out how we can help you.

      We have also developed a user insight report on the use of technology in background noise – you can download the executive summary below or email us to get the full report technology@hearingloss.org.uk.
