A Contralateral Routing of Offside Signals (CROS) hearing aid is a type of hearing aid that is used to treat unilateral hearing loss. It takes sound from the ear with poorer hearing and transmits to the ear with better hearing.
Who can benefit from CROS?
If you are deaf in one ear and have normal hearing in the other, then CROS is for you. The solution can also be used if you are deaf in one ear and hearing impaired in the other. This is known as a BiCROS solution.
Simple to use hearing solution : You wear CROS on your deaf ear like an ordinary Behind-the-ear hearing aid. It picks up sound from your surroundings and transmits it over to a hearing aid on your other ear.
Hear all sounds :
Without two working ears, your brain has difficulty working out the precise origin of sounds. This means that it can be difficult to locate sounds. Imagine having to cross a busy street uncertain about which direction traffic is coming from.
Because it picks up sounds on your deaf side, CROS helps you hear all the sounds around you. That means that you can hear sounds from your deaf side without turning your head. Improved listening - conversations in noisy places.
Listening to and participating in conversations is also made a lot easier with CROS. If you are talking to friends in a restaurant or at a party for instance, you can enjoy, follow and participate in the conversation - regardless of on which side of you the speaker is located.
