BBDO Bangkok Helps Alert Hearing Impaired to Danger While They Sleep

Thai Health Promotion Foundation and Deaf Association of Bangkok launch world-first 'Hearing Rescue'

BBDO Bangkok Helps Alert Hearing Impaired to Danger While They Sleep

BBDO Bangkok has created the world’s first hearing aid that not only amplifies sound, but can also detect the sounds of danger by turning the hearing device into a vibrating wrist band.  

In partnership with the Thai Health Promotion Foundation and Deaf Association of Bangkok, BBDO Bangkok conducted a survey amongst the hearing impaired in Thailand and found that 100% take out their hearing aid at night due to discomfort. 

Recognising the dangers hearing impaired people face in the night, BBDO Bangkok created ‘Hearing Rescue’ – the world’s first hearing aid that alerts people to danger while they sleep. 

The device was developed from a normal hearing aid, adding a connecting piece that turns the hearing aid into a wristband. Built-in sound recognition will detect ‘danger’ sounds such as a siren, a barking dog or a fire alarm, and a minimum of 60 decibels will activate the vibrating function and alert the wearer.
