Thread: Hearing Aids and Xray Machines

  1. Default Hearing Aids and Xray Machines

    i usually dont wear my HAs during the morning. as such when i board a train going to work, my HA which is in my bag, and pass through an xray machine(similar to those in airports).

    my question is will this shorten the life of my HA? as to the battery will this also shorten its life??

    thanks!

    xray machines to get on trains? they would go through in your ear or in your bag. why don't you wear them in the morning? anyway, a xray won't impact your aids or batteries. but take them out if you ever have an mri.

    A couple of months ago I wore my HAs going through the machines at a couple of US airports with no problems.

    an X-ray machine in an airport is not the same as getting a medical grade X-ray. but, again why carry them around when you could be wearing them?

    no volume control or mute? whatever floats your boat. just wondering where you live you have to run your bag through xray for a train?

    My manual says this too. Does this include dental x rays? I so did not know this.
