Hearing aid : The hidden device? (English)
Abstract [en]

This essay is about the history of the hearing aid in Sweden, from 1930s until today. The hearing aid as an apparatus is described, and views by the users are presented. Articles and interviews have been used as source material to answer the main questions. In the essay, people who have written the articles, and the ten users being interviewed, describe how hearing aids are used in everyday life, and how users interact with people in general and how the hearing care system treats users. Another question regards how users perceive their own hearing aids from an aesthetic perspective. The articles are collected from a member-paper for people who have a hearing-loss. The articles were published between 1943 and 1960.

The result is that these users are quite comfortable with their hearing aids. This result is also contradictory to the general view of a person who has a hearing loss. The general view of a person with a hearing aid is a person with a problem. The given result shows that this general view is in conflict with how people with a hearing loss can view themselves.
