Earlier this year, Shoebox Audio Engineer Devin Loney showed doctors and patients in Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) how to use the Shoebox audiometry system, a quick and easy way to detect hearing loss even before the patient notices. He attended a week-long conference, held by the global scientific organization The Union, on multidrug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB), a disease that affects many there. MDR-TB is treatable, however, the drugs that are used are toxic to the ear and can cause permanent hearing loss.
Shoebox, a WS Audiology brand, allows doctors to change the course of treatment accordingly to prevent any permanent hearing impairment. Watch the video below for an inside look.
