Invitation to participate in pilot study: hearing aid use and physical activity

A pilot study has been developed that aims to investigate whether hearing-aids can have an impact on health and wellbeing. We are particularly interested in whether hearing-aids can help to improve physical activity and function.

How can you help?
We would like to invite you to take part in our research study that aims to assess the acceptability of a larger scale study to investigate the impact of hearing-aids on health and wellbeing. The study will involve two trips to Loughborough University, between these two visits you will be asked to wear an activity tracker on your wrist. We would love to hear from you if you:

• Are due to be fitted with your first hearing aid.
• Are 45-75 years old.
• Are a native English speaker.

What to do next

If you are interested in taking part in this study or would like more information about the study, please contact us either by email: or telephone: +44 (0)1509 225439.

Please see attached file for a shareable poster, as well as a link to the full participant information sheet.
