(HealthDay News) -- If you have a significant hearing loss, hearing aids and other sound-amplification devices can help you cope.

The National Institute on Aging mentions these "assistive" devices that can help you hear better:

  • A telephone-amplifying system.
  • Headphones or similar systems for TV and radio that can avoid the need to crank up the volume or deal with background noise.
  • Devices for your doorbell, alarm clock or smoke detectors that trigger vibrations or a visual alert when these things sound.
