The Ear Gear Story

  Our Daughter Shameera was born in October 1996. She was our second child. Both my wife and I quickly realized that she was not meeting her developmental milestones. Testing revealed that she had a rare chromosome abnormality called Partial Trisomy 18. In addition to having a significant cognitive delay, Shameera also had a mild to moderate hearing loss which was diagnosed at the age of two. She started wearing behind the ear hearing aids soon after. Then came the challenge. How to keep them on!

The Story of Why Ear Gear Was Created

In October 1996, Ear Gear founder Mark Rosal’s daughter Shameera was born.  Soon after, he and his wife started to realize that she was not meeting developmental milestones.  Testing revealed that she had a rare chromosome abnormality called partial Trisomy 18 in addition to a moderate hearing loss which was eventually diagnosed at the age of two. Visits to the audiologist resulted in behind the ear hearing aids which was surely the answer to all of their problems.
