solar powered pediatric hearing aid
RISD and MIT students worked together on a project sponsored by Design that Matters and Solar Ear to create an affordable hearing aid for children in developing countries. The system uses a AAA battery that is recharged using a solar charger. The behind the ear hearing aids are small because the battery is in a separate holder worn on the body. The system is simple to use and its bear cases encourage children to wear their hearing aids.
