Nearly 80% of those who could benefit from wearing a hearing aid choose not to use one. This study, completed by an interdisciplinary team for the Victorian Deaf Society in Melbourne, Australia, addresses the social attitudes and other limitations of hearing aids which result in poor market penetration. Based on the principles of universal design, specific recommendations are presented to improve the function and style of hearing aids. Additionally, the study recommends implementation of hearing assistive devices for the hearing.
