Devices: Hearing Aids, Cochlear Implants and Other Sensory Aids to Improve Hearing
Founder Howard P. House, M.D., believed that knowledge is only meaningful when it is shared. The House Research Institute (formerly House Ear Institute) continues that philosophy in its work today.
As a non-profit research facility, House Research Institute continues to partner with a variety of hearing device manufacturers and organizations in efforts to develop next- generation products that can deliver amplification and technology improvements. Please note that the Institue does not endorse particular products show on subsequesnt pages. The images shown are only for demonstration purposes to illustrate typical hearing applicance devices. There are several companies that manufacture devices.
