Hearing loss is a debilitating problem around the world. This loss causes significant communication impediments for children, creating large educational challenges. Many adults who lose their hearing lose their job. Seniors with hearing loss may become isolated from family conversations, which can lead to depression. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 650 million people have hearing loss, yet only 10 million aids are sold every year. Fewer than 2.5% of the global population needing a hearing aid can get one. Furthermore, there is a dearth of trained professionals to detect hearing loss, especially with babies and infants, which is a critical time of life for developing speech. Solar Ear has developed a low cost, holistic method to reduce hearing damage and reverse the burden of hearing loss at all ages.
A mobile holistic hearing health solution called mDREET (Detection, Research, Education, Equipment, and Therapy) has been developed. Each individual aspect of the DREET program has been successfully implemented and tested at the Solar Ear operation in Brazil. Solar Ear will be the first to implement a fusion of individually proven programs, protocols, and key partnerships – together creating the solution to significantly reducing hearing loss. A micro-entrepreneur or rural clinic will be able to test someone's hearing using their Android phone, the results will get sent to Solar Ear and we will then be able to remotely program the user's cell phone to become a hearing aid ( with earbuds) Hearing health will now be affordable and accessible to all. We will have 3 different hearing tests and THE FIRST to be able to test the hearing of a baby.
