By Lolly Wigall, AuD Several months ago, my sister and I were talking about our health. We were discussing our own health issues as well as those in the rest of our family.

It’s the holiday season, a time when Hearing Economics loves to tell stories, speculate, mix metaphors, and downright fantasize about the once and future hearing devices market. This and several future posts will keep the tradition alive, by telling a fast-paced, glittering tale of Siemens and those who wanted her at almost any price, or […]

The manufacturer, Medtronic, describes the Meniett as a “Low-Pressure Pulse Generator device.” The […]
Last week, part 1 of this series examined Naomi Croghan’s research.

Everyone needs a superhero – someone you makes you believe that you can be who you want to be. Until recently, most superheroes were male. I remember when Wonder Woman came out.
