Mom Designs Superhero Hearing Aids for Kids

By ALEXIS BENVENISTE

Sarah Ivermee, a mother in the U.K., took a very unique approach with her son's hearing aids. Freddie Ivermee, 4, has a loss of hearing in one ear and is deaf in the other, so he wears a cochlear implant -- a device that sends sound signals to the brain to help him hear throughout the day.

Some kids may be embarrassed by their hearing aids, but Ivermee has always been thinking outside of the box to improve hearing aids for children. When one of her friends mentioned that her daughter felt self-conscious about wearing her hearing aid to school, Sarah suggested that she jazz up the aid with nail stickers.

Ivermee now manages Lugs, a company that sells fun and colorful hearing aids that will help children feel less ashamed and more excited. There are a wide array of designs to choose from, ranging from superheroes like Batman and Spider-Man to Dora the Explorer and the minions from 'Despicable Me.'

With over 100 options to choose from, kids with hearing aids are bound to find something that fits their interests and personalities.
