The number one thing for a successful hearing aid user is getting the hearing aid on their ear properly. If the client can’t get the hearing aid on their ear, they can have the best devices in the world - they’re not going to work.

At Hearing Beyond, we use training tools like the CARL simulator to effectively teach patients about their hearing devices - it is a gamechanger for clinical practice.

Teaching & Research Institution

Overall, having access to a set of CARL Simulators has allowed me to overhaul my teaching, for the better. I am able to do a better job, more consistently, and set up experiential learning activities that have high face validity and that can be expected to transfer to clinical practice. At this point, I can safely say that I wouldn't teach without CARL. He is a game changer.

Teaching & Research Institution

I used CARL during my practical evaluations this semester. It was much easier (and FERPA compliant) than trying to do hearing aid fittings on myself or requiring a student to bring a peer for their evaluation.

Associate Professor, University of South Dakota

Multi-location Hearing Clinic

I came to rely on the use of CARL as an integral part of onboarding.

Within a single session, it allowed the rapid evaluation of proficiency and comfort with verification andallowed me to determine if additional training was needed or coaching on the valueand importance of its routine use.
