The effects of hearing loss are more serious than you think

Evidence indicates that hearing loss and cognitive decline are linked.

No one knows why. We're helping find out.

Based on combined results from multiple studies carried out by the Lancet Commission, evidence shows that hearing loss is correlated with cognitive decline and dementia. In fact, there is strong evidence to show that:


Mild hearing loss doubles the risk of developing dementia


Moderate hearing loss triples the risk of developing dementia


Severe hearing loss increases the risk up to five times

We can’t reverse hearing loss but research shows that hearing training can improve hearing ability up to 25% by helping our brains adapt to changes in our hearing. eargym is working with world-leading experts in hearing and cognition to discover just how beneficial hearing training can be. Learning together, we aim to discover how training hearing skills can improve our quality of life, and fully understand the correlation between hearing and cognitive health.
