Safeguarding people and society against the burden and suffering caused by impaired hearing and tinnitus.
Loud music and noise damages the hair cells in the cochlea; this damage is irreversible.
In addition to health issues (impaired hearing, tinnitus, stress, insomnia, etc.) and problematic social engagement (difficulty with understanding speech), there is also a significant impact on the economic prosperity of people and businesses. There is thus every reason to prevent hearing damage.
It is critically important to identify hearing damage as early as possible, so that preventive measures can be taken in time. After (early) detection, there must be continuity in the care process, whereby 4 aspects should receive attention: exposure to noise, hearing acuity, hearing protection and positive behavior modification.
