Repairs, Maintenance and Adaptations

Depending on the type of equipment and the problem presented, we may be to able to provide solutions that will improve access and outcomes.

For example, a student with a bone-anchored hearing aid (Baha®) experienced feedback and difficulties participating in a sophisticated language laboratory through headphones with a boom microphone.

Collaborating with the laboratory, Technicians modified a spare headset, removing the sound diaphragms and replacing them with an authorised Baha® input adaptor/isolator. This allowed sounds normally heard through the headset to be fed into the student’s hearing instrument (Baha®) via direct input, leaving the boom microphone function unaffected.
