Kieger Healthcare Chart of the Month

Kieger Healthcare Chart of the Month

Lots has been written about Biogen’s Alzheimer’s drugs. But did you know, that hearing loss is the largest modifiable risk for dementia? Hi, I’m Flavio Mancino from Kieger.

Recent studies have found that impaired hearing may be an important risk factor for dementia. Nevertheless, hearing aid penetrations remain very low.

  • In Switzerland only 41% of the hearing impaired people wear hearing aids,
  • in the US only 30%,
  • Emerging Markets devices are basically inexistent

Why is that?

  • stigmas associated with wearing a hearing aid,
  • denial effects,
  • and financial considerations

So, what can be done in the fight against Alzheimer’s? Well, one of the easiest things might be raising the awareness about hearing impairment.
