Idea

Hearing loss is correlated with social isolation, loneliness, depression and cognitive impairment. Surprisingly, even mild hearing loss can double the risk of dementia. Globally, 430m adults are living with hearing loss and 1 in 6 are of working age. Over 1bn more young people are at risk from noise exposure and headphone mis-use. 79% of Britons have never had a hearing test, whereas only 13% report never having had a sight test. We believe it is time to take hearing health more seriously.

eargym has developed a patent-pending product that combines immersive audio with mobile technology to create fun, realistic, hearing training games that help users practice and improve their hearing skills. Delivered through smartphone and headphones, eargym also plans to offer tests, advice and referrals to professionals.

We have already raised £150k to build and test our prototype. 71% of our 24 testers showed an average of 14% improvement in just 4 weeks against the World Health Organisation’s hearWHO test. The beta product is available in app stores and despite little marketing our user-base is growing on avg. 12% WoW.

Ready to commercialise and start selling eargym as an employee benefit, we are running pilots with UK businesses and a wellbeing provider. We're raising now to build our team and launch our paid product. Purpose-led, we plan to contribute our data to vital dementia research.
