Sarah Hindes :: HearingHenry
After giving birth to a child who is hearing impaired, New South Wales mum Sarah Hindes was faced with a whole set of issues she was not prepared to handle. When her son Henry received a hearing aid, she became constantly stressed about the device falling out. This was not only due to the implications of losing the important device but also the child?s need for consistent access to sound during such a critical learning period of speech and comprehension development.
The hearinghenry range consists of two simple yet innovative products, which assist in keeping a child?s hearing devices firmly in place. The hearinghenry hat holds hearing aids in place and the hearinghenry headband secures the Australian invention, the Cochlear Implant.
