Megan wears two behind the ear hearing aids to help her hearing impairment. I(Katie Weber) came up with the idea to create a device to hold a generic ear bud headphone that could be placed above the microphone on Megan's hearing aid. So that she could listen to her music without the hassle of having to hold the headphone over the microphone. We worked together to design a rectangular platform that the ear bud can slide into connected to two sides that are at angles so that they hug the hearing aid creating a snug fit. With this design Megan, and the many others that wear behind the ear hearing aids, can listen to music more freely.
