Stay Connected: How to Use Signia Aids from Home for Hearing Health
Congratulations on your purchase of Signia hearing aids! Achieving improved hearing is a significant milestone, and it’s essential to ensure you receive the necessary follow-up care and attention to maximize your hearing experience. In today’s digital age, many tasks can be accomplished from the comfort of your home, and Signia hearing aids support remote appointments through the Signia app. This blog will guide you through the steps to access remote care and support using the Signia app, helping you maintain and optimize your hearing health without leaving your living room.
Getting Started to Set up for a Signia Remote Session:
To get started with remote care for your Signia hearing aids, you’ll need to download the “Signia app”. It’s available for free on both iOS devices with iOS version 9.3 or higher (from the App Store) and Android devices with Android 5.0 or higher (from Google Play).
At Hears to U, Hearing & Hearables, If you live in Minnesota, our team will add you as a client into our software, which will trigger a text message containing a download link for the app and a unique code. This step will most likely be completed during your initial visit to our office when you receive your new Signia hearing aids. After downloading the app and entering the code, our experts will assist you in pairing your hearing aids with the app and your smartphone.
If you live in a State other than Minnesota, we are still happy to help you find that app or refer you to a hearing provider near you.
Preparing for Remote Appointments:
For successful remote telehealth appointments with your Signia hearing aids ensure you have the following:
- Stable Internet Wi-Fi Connection: A reliable internet connection is crucial for smooth telehealth visits.
- Headset: Have a headset ready for voice calls to ensure clear communication with your hearing care professional. If you don’t have a headset a good microphone on your smart phone will also work.
- Webcam: If you’re using a tablet or computer for video calls, make sure you have a working webcam.
Using the Signia App for Remote Care:
Once your app is set up and your hearing aids are paired, you’re ready for remote appointments.
Here’s how the remote procedure works:
- Approval: When your appointment begins, a window will appear in the Signia app asking for your permission to allow your Hearing Care Professional to adjust your hearing aids. Click the “OK” button to approve the connection.
- Real-Time Adjustments: Any adjustments made by your hearing care professional will be sent in real-time to your hearing aids, ensuring you receive personalized care without leaving your home.
The Benefits of Signia App Remote fitting are plentiful:
Apart from remote care, the Signia app offers access to a standard set of hearing lessons. These lessons allow you to become familiar with different hearing settings, various hearing situations (such as one-on-one conversations and group settings), and how to adjust your hearing aids for the best experience. These lessons can be revisited anytime and as often as you like, making them a valuable resource, especially if you’re new to hearing aids. We also like the “mask-mode” setting. This accommodates a boost in the frequencies where masks muffle speech. The new Signia app now has a health section. You can track your steps and check your conversation level. I am not sure people need it but it is a great little feature.
Scheduling Your First Remote Appointment:
When you’re ready for your first remote appointment or have any questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Technology can indeed be your friend, making it possible to receive top-notch hearing care from the comfort and safety of your home.
