Why we are here
Being able to communicate is an intrinsic part of what makes us human, as we discover when we experience hearing difficulties. When we cannot hear properly, our participation in everyday life decreases. We withdraw and become less active, more isolated.
On the contrary, when we keep stimulating the brain with sound impulses, we also help keep our hearing more fit. It helps us connect, communicate and socialise with the world around us.
The benefits of good hearing are assisted by the newest technology and hearing care. For young people and seniors alike, overcoming the boundaries of hearing loss by the use of hearing care solutions, by the expert advice of a hearing care professional and by keeping the hearing fit will make it easier not just to stay active, but to enjoy life to the fullest. So, ensuring hearing health is more important than ever.
The story of our company – Demant – begins in 1904 with one man’s passion to improve the life of his wife, who suffered from hearing loss. At a time when hearing aids were in their infancy, Hans Demant bought one for his wife Camilla and they started building the foundation for professional hearing care. After some years, their son William took over and developed a prosperous company throughout the twentieth century – based on his parents’ story and the vision to give hearing back to the hearing impaired.
