Can a wrestling headgear be more harmful than beneficial? The name implies nothing to what the headgear is really used for. Ear guard is a less common name for it. Designed to be worn by wrestlers during a match, headgears are used to protect the ears from being damaged. A match can not be started, if either of the wrestlers does not have a proper headgear on. Having had the experience of wrestling in high school, I know what it is like to wear a headgear. Yes, headgears have their pros sides, but these pros are outweighed by what damage headgears can actually cause.
There are way too many injuries in football. Not even just in the pros because it happens whenever you can get a football game going. The number one reason they need to fix helmets is because almost 6% of NFL players get a concussion (Jones 2018). That’s way too many. Another reason is about 3.5 middle school students receive treatment after a game (Mills 2016). My final reason is high school had 135,000 concussions reported (“Youth Sports Injuries Statistics”). Football commissioners are already getting started.
A cochlear implant is an electronic device that restores hearing for people anywhere from hard of hearing to the profoundly deaf. The cochlear implant is surgically implanted under the skin behind the ear. The surgeon puts the electrode array inside the inner ear and than inside the cochlea. The implant works by a device outside the ear, which rests on the skin behind the ear. It is held upright by a magnet and is also connected by a lead to a sound professor.
Collecting NCAA football helmets is a fun pastime for fans of all ages. Whether you’re interested in teams from one region or the entire country, the bright logos make helmets stand out on your mantelpiece or in your display case. You can collect full-size authentic helmets, throwbacks (helmets from years past), replicas or mini-helmets.
Do you like to play with small items? Of course i do! Why would I be asking this question? Last year I was tying flies (working with flies is really small work). I was pulling the pin through the hole in the hook for the tie on while my light was shining brightly on my work. The feel of the cold metal and warm fabric at once was a weird feeling. The smoky scent coming from the equipment was horrendous [My grandfather (who gave it to me and smoked) had it sitting in his house].You could hear the thread being pulled through itself breaking the what was before silence.
For Christmas, a great present would be a second ear piercing. Christmas is always a time for giving. Ever since I got my first ear piercing, I’ve wanted a second piercing. Once I saw how it looked on other people I knew I wanted it. Second piercings are on the top of my Christmas List.
Clean needles are very helpful to reduce to amount of blood- borne diseases that are transferred from needle sharing. According to Sullivan (2004), sharing dirty needles has become the primary way of AIDS cases in New Jersey. Drug addicts will reuse or share needles more than once which is how diseases such as AIDS are transferred.
Wearing earplugs for six hours has given me so much insight into what those who use hearing aids and cochlear implants experience. It has also given me a new appreciation for my ears. I did not realize how difficult it would be to attempt to communicate as I normally would with the earplugs in; however, it was frustrating, straining, and exhausting. I wore the earplugs in three different situations. The first setting was with my roommates at home, the second setting took place in a shopping trip to the mall, and the third setting in which I wore earplugs was a cell phone conversation with my mom. These experiences were trying, but ultimately gave me a better understanding and empathy for individuals who are hard of hearing; this exercise will
Advancements in Information Technology have now made it possible to restore hearing to the profoundly deaf by inserting a prosthetic device called the Bionic Ear (also known as the Cochlear Implant) in an individual’s inner ear. The Bionic Ear technology is an example of design and innovation combined with information processing, software design and development. Since it was first invented, technology advancements proceeded on a parallel track in terms of miniaturisation and increasing sophistication of this Bionic Ear technology. This particular technology operates by delivering electrical stimuli to the auditory nerve which then triggers auditory
The bone-anchored hearing aid, or Baha, made by CochlearTM, is a bone conduction hearing aid. The Baha is usually fitted to those who cannot wear air conduction hearing aids. The Baha is typically fit to individuals with a conductive hearing loss, but can be fit to other hearing losses. Sound vibrations travel through the outer ear to the tympanic membrane, which moves the malleus, incus, and stables, also known as the ossicles. The footplate of the stapes moves against the oval window, which creates a wave in the fluid inside the cochlea. This results in a change in pressure of the basilar membrane, moving the hair cells, which send information through the auditory nerve to the brain. A conductive hearing loss is when sounds are not conducted
Skullcandy is a company that marketing and sells many things. These things may vary from headphones and earphones all the way to clothing such as hats and T-shirts. Skullcandy was founded by Rick Alden in Park City, Utah. (Wikipedia, 2011) Rick started it in 2003 by a product called the Skullcandy Portable Link. The Skullcandy Portable Link is a headphone that uses the LINK system and is combined with
Earplugs are placed into the ear canal in order to block the entrance of sound by forming a hermetic seal. Earplugs are better suited for longer use for those individuals who are exposed to noise throughout their workday, and provide a significant amount of attenuation. However, the effectiveness of the earplugs depends on proper insertion, and requires training employees on how to correctly place them in the canal. The level of attenuation can vary depending on how well the earplug is fit, as well as the motivation of the employee to wear them consistently (Berger, 2003).
