Hearing Health Awareness at Macquarie University Open Day
At the Macquarie University Open Day, Australian Hearing Hub member organisations provided hearing health awareness, hearing screenings, demos and fun!
Over 60 people attended the Australian Hearing Hub tours which included the Anechoic Chamber, MQ Health Speech and Hearing Clinic and 3D printing facility.
Over 50 people participated in the directional hearing aid demonstration. This provided people the opportunity to experience what it is like to listen in noise. The second demonstration was a virtual reality experience of what it is like to be a child at school with a hearing loss.
Ear plugs were also handed out to encourage people to protect their hearing in recreational noise.
The Australian Hearing bus provided hearing screenings to over 50 people.
People also had the opportunity to look inside their ear using a video otoscope.
