As we age, our bodies change (hello, creaky joints), and our brains do, too. Periodically forgetting recent events like where you put your keys is normal, but consistently having trouble completing tasks on your own or not being able to recall the names of items isn’t normal.

Interested in knowing where your brain health stands? Precision Hearing is pleased to offer Cognivue Thrive—a revolutionary diagnostic tool for cognitive function.

Get Peace of Mind
Cognivue Thrive is a portable, self-administered, computerized screening device that measures cognitive function and takes just minutes to complete. It empowers you to take control of your brain health by uncovering any cognitive issue as early as possible, ensuring that you can get help faster.

The Cognivue Thrive experience begins with a four-minute introductory video followed by exercises that measure memory, executive function, visuospatial abilities, processing and reaction time. Your audiologist reviews the results and uses them in clinical decision-making to set expectations, make referrals as appropriate and determine success. They can also send these results to your primary care doctor or other health care provider.

The Hearing Loss and Cognitive Decline Connection
If you or someone you love has hearing loss, evidence shows that you’re at a higher risk of cognitive decline than someone with normal hearing, making Cognivue Thrive even more crucial for your overall well-being.

In a study published in 2020, individuals with mild hearing loss were found to have a two-fold risk of dementia compared to those with normal hearing. For those individuals with a moderate hearing loss, that risk was found to be three-fold.

But research also shows that patients who get treatment for their hearing loss with hearing devices reduce their odds of cognitive decline.

Early detection of hearing loss and cognitive issues is key. We can uncover both for you at Precision Hearing by incorporating Cognivue Thrive into your comprehensive hearing evaluation. Call Precision Hearing at 352-765-8008 today to schedule an appointment.
