Hearing is BelievingMobile Hearing Tests, Hearing Aids and Assistive Hearing Devices | Serving Western Manitoba
Hearing is important to your overall health. At Innovative Hearing Technology, we provide mobile diagnostic hearing tests and industrial hearing tests to evaluate and assess hearing loss. We also work with a range of suppliers to provide a line of assistive devices, including hearing aids, to help improve your hearing and overall quality of life.
Diagnostic Hearing Tests
A diagnostic hearing test will determine if hearing loss is present. We will assess your hearing ability compared to age-appropriate hearing levels, and assess your ability to hear and comprehend speech.
Industrial Hearing Tests
For employers, we provide industrial hearing tests. Our mobile unit is fully-equipped to visit businesses and worksites around southwestern and west-central Manitoba.
When should I get my hearing tested?
Make an appointment to get a hearing test if you: are 40 – 50 years of age; have close relatives with hearing loss; have trouble hearing conversations; are around/or used to be around loud noises on a regular basis; often hear ringing in your ears.
