Our research on assessing the performance of hearing aids in the real world has received some media coverage over the past coupled of days:
- Hearing Aids Get a Boost from Smartphone App (appeared on KGAN)
- Smartphones give Iowa researchers hope for hearing loss (appeared in Press-Citizen).
- Smartphone app helps University of Iowa researchers improve hearing aids (appeared in the Gazette)
This is joint work with with Prof. Yu-Hsiang Wu from the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. Obviously, there are a lot of people behind the scenes helping out. Our research would not be without the help of Elizabeth Stangl who is doing an amazing job at managing our studies, my students — Syed Shabih Hasan, Ryan Brummet, and Farley Lai — who helped develop the app and analyze the terabytes of data we collected, and our study participants who have so graciously given their time.
