Audiometers for Hearing Tests & Measuring Hearing Ability
Audiometers are diagnostic machines that are used to measure the hearing ability of patients by means of hearing tests. Audiometry, as with tympanometry, is often applied in Ear, Nose and Throat surgeries (ENT). Depending on the type of screening audiometer, the devices can be used for pure tone audiometry (hearing tests with a pure tone audiometer) and/or for speech audiometry (language comprehension via a speech audiometer).
With tone audiometry, patients are presented with specific tones of increasing volume, in order to determine the frequency dependent auditory sensitivity. There are special audiometers for children, which test hearing ability in a playful manner. Depending on the device, speech comprehension can also be tested during the hearing test.
The Auditest audiometer from ELECTRONICA Technologies is one of the practical portable devices you can find in this category. The battery operated device is particularly handy, has a large LCD display and low-noise buttons. Of course, the delivery also includes high isolation Sennheiser headphones, a carrying case, AA batteries and a mini CD with manual.
Another handy mobile screening device is the OmniPro Multifunctional Instrument. In addition to an audiometer, it includes an assortment of diagnostic instruments like a stethoscope, an otoscope and an opthalmoscope. This combination is ideal for students, general practitioners and doctors who do house calls.
Medical Audiometers with Additional Bone Conduction Measurement
For testing the middle ear, it is worth comparing the hearing threshold of air conduction and bone conduction. The Maico ST 20KL Audiometer is perfectly suitable for this purpose. Thanks to the light spots in the audiogram field, the audiometric testing becomes easy and free from error. The results can be transferred to different software products thanks to it a PC connection.
