In 1994 our almost four year old daughter, Hillary was diagnosed with a severe to profound bilateral sensori-neural hearing loss. For any parent that’s a mouthful but to a parent who’s been searching for answers to their child’s unusual behavior it was such a relief! Finally we had answers to so many questions and a plan to correct and improve not only our daughter’s behavior but her quality of life. She was to be fitted with hearing aids immediately.

After being fitted with hearing aids it was not long until we realized that those pesky little things did not stay in well by themselves, especially when there was a 3 year old pulling them out; she had not yet realized how much they were to benefit her. After going to a birthday party and discovering when it was time to go home that one of the hearing aids had disappeared, then searching for an hour before we finally found it, I decided enough was enough. I created an adjustable retention product to keep the hearing aids in place, put it on Hillary’s hearing aids, and it worked so well that I forgot about it.

During the next visit to the audiologist, she asked where we had purchased that incredible product that was keeping Hillary’s hearing aids in place. I explained that it was a one of a kind, an original. The audiologist asked us to go into business and sell them so that they could purchase them. By the time the company was founded and incorporated it was 1997 and Hillary’s younger brother, Jeremiah had been diagnosed with a similar hearing loss as well and the rest is history.

We grew from that one product to five different ones for use with hearing aids, glasses and cochlear implant BTE processors. Our hair barrettes were designed for those with aural atresia/microtia but work well for anyone. All products can be used with one hearing instrument alone, glasses alone as well as both simultaneously.
