Hearing Loss Can Cut Your Life Short

This episode of “Lying on the Beach” can actually help you hear better. Steve Greenberg and Lois Whitman-Hess spoke to Chris Ellis, CEO of AudioCardio, a mobile app that claims to protect and restore hearing.

The app allows you to quickly evaluate your hearing and generate a personalized, inaudible sound therapy to protect and strengthen your hearing. Think of it like physical therapy for your ears.

And because the sound therapy is inaudible, you use the app while you enjoy other activities he like going for a walk, listening to music, or even while you are working out.

Steve and Lois will be testing the app over the next few months. Most folks don’t realize that hearing loss can be very detrimental as they get older. There is a definite correlation between the loss of hearing and balance, dementia, etc. Listen to this podcast to understand how you can test your hearing for life and avoid elderly mishaps that can lead to serious injuries or even death. Happy days ahead.

The new HANDL Stick, from $10 to $20, (depending on the materials used), attaches to the back of your phone (or case) with an adhesive strip. The strip is stronger than Popeye and the patented brace and elastic system makes your phone feel like it is floating in your hand. .

Why are we interviewing Allen? We love the HANDL Stick and want everyone to know about it. Allen is a close friend who deserves credit for connecting a painter’s artistic touch to the most advantageous way to hold your cell. HANDL Stick also allows you to use landscape or in portrait mode. The Stick gives you a hands free option for desk use.
