Hi Everyone! My name is Matt Tilaks, and I'm working on an exciting design project here at Loughborough University regarding improving sound recognition and localisation for people living with hearing impairments.

This will involve the development of a wearable device to allow better recognition and identification of common sounds within household and public settings. These sounds may include, alarms, doorbells, name being called, sirens and more.

As such, primary research is currently taking place through an online survey - The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete and will be completely anonymous, so if you could complete the survey I would be very grateful. Link below:


Thank you in advance, your participation would be greatly appreciated! Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
