Hearing Aid App
Full Invention Name:
Smartphone Application for Bluetooth Hearing Aids
We are the Buist Mindseekers from Buist Academy in Charleston, SC. Our group is made up of nine 4th and 5th grade students. We enjoy working together, building robots, and having fun. Our favorite time of the day is when we can meet up after school and work on our lego project. We really enjoyed this year's FLL topic, Senior Solutions. We were able to meet a lot of people in our community, and we hope that our solution to hearing loss will help many people. We all hope to work together on next year's FLL Competion as well.
Brief Submission Description:
Many people with hearing aids have problems using devices, such as telephones. Companies that make Bluetooth enabled hearing aids also sell an intermediary device that enables the person to hear the Bluetooth telephone through their hearing aids. Our smart phone application would allow the smart phone and the Bluetooth hearing aid to communicate directly, eliminating the need for an intermediary device.
