OTC Hearing Aids in the United States: How Did We Get Here?

Last month, Dr. Wayne Staab was invited to present on OTC developments in the US at the British Irish Hearing Instrument Manufacturer’s Association (BIHIMA) conference, held in Birmingham, England.

With the presentation, he provided attendees at the conference a great synopsis of US government regulations relating to hearing aids from the 1970’s to today. The presentation is now available at the HHTM Journal, alongside peer-reviewed research posters and articles.
