Hearing loss is a rapidly growing medical challenge. Right now, 1.5 billion around the globe are affected. According to WHO, this figure will rise to 2.5 billion by 2050. For those affected, limitation or loss of communication and social interaction have a strong impact on their health and quality of life.
