One of successful audiological rehabilitations depends on whether new hearing aid users have strong motivation and also how well they understand comprehensive instructions, i.e., use, care, and limitations of the hearing aids. Although many audiologists allot as much as 30 ~ 40 min to explain about the hearing aid instructions during the first fitting appointment, new hearing aid users might forget most information provided by a healthcare professional. The purpose of the study is to help the hearing aid users remember the essential instructions through visual information of hearing aids orientation (HAO) DVD and thus continue to patient’s high satisfaction eventually even with decreasing counseling time in the clinic. First of all, we summarized small orientation books provided by 13 hearing aid companies and hearing centers. Based on the summary, two 8-min DVDs (e.g., BTE and CIC) of three sections including 1) insertion and removal of the hearing aids, 2) changing the battery, and 3) care and maintenance were developed. To see validity of the DVD, a total 80 sets of DVD and survey having 10 items were provided to four hearing centers in Seoul and near areas. Among them, sixty-nine sets were received and analyzed. Most of hearing-impaired responders were satisfied with auditory-visual information by this HAO DVD which provided better understand to the hearing aid wearers, although we need some modifications for public use. We expect that HAO DVD will aid successful audiological rehabilitation as well as hearing aid satisfaction.
