My daughter Lauren was diagnosed with a severe hearing loss at birth and was fitted with her first hearing aid at 6 weeks of age.
At first she kept her aids in fine until she got to about 4 months old, she then started to pull them out so I invented the Hearing Aid Headband with its special patent pending pockets that hold the aid behind the ear.
These made an immediate difference. Because the headband holds the aids in place it feels more secure to her so it stops her from pulling it out as much but also as the aid is attached to the headband that when she does pull them out they are harder to lose and the risk of her getting to the battery is greatly reduced.
I was then approached by other parents and teachers of the deaf to make them for them too. So I started a Facebook page and have now made over 250 headbands for children of all different ages.
They are suitable for behind the ear hearing aids and also for cochlear implant users too. Each headband is handmade to order and tailor made for the user. So if you only have one hearing aid then I only make 1 pocket.
The headband can also be used for older children/adults for sports to hold the aid in place.
“we tried it and he kept his aids in for a record 20 mins without touching them!! Yay!”
“Thank you for my headband! I love it! my big brother thinks I look like a runner but I reckon
it’s just part of my superhero costume. xx”
“Since getting his headband he has not touched his aids, having constantly pulled them out before.
I cannot thank you enough, we will be buying lots more!!!”
“He absolutely loves his hearing aid headband!!! They have been so awesome the last 4 days
to have since he was pulling out his hearing aids constantly, even with a hearing aid clip!”
“My daughters hearing aid headband was getting tight as she was growing just got her new
one today and it’s a perfect fit thank you xxx”
“Thank you so much for making the headband she has had her hearing aids in all day which
is unusual before they were always in her mouth”
“Thank you so much for the headbands, my granddaughter loves it and it fits perfectly!””
“perfect fit and looks pretty cool too!”
* Due to the bespoke nature of my headbands once I have received your order I will then email you and ask for a few head measurements and the type and quantity of the hearing aids or Cochlear implants -
