The new world of directional hearing
How does the screening audiometer AuriCheck work?
The small, German-made audiometer for children aged 3 years and older is established in many pediatric and adolescent medicine practices. It complies with the new pediatric guideline, as it produces sound audiograms in the conventional way with 10 test frequencies. In addition to pure tone audiometry, playful tests simplify the measurement procedure. These include the animal voice test mFAST, which determines the child's hearing threshold using four animal voices from different frequency ranges.
The speech intelligibility test AAST (Adaptive Auditory Speech Test) can also be used to create a speech audiogram. The AAST is available in various languages (including Russian, Arabic, Turkish). With this test, children with a migration background can also be examined without any problems. The language test does not require the examiner to have foreign language skills. The children's hearing test is also billable according to EBM (04335) and GÖA (1406).
An attractive wide-screen touch display enables intuitive menu navigation and makes the screening examination easier for the child and the examiner.
Which tools are suitable for the measurement of auditory processing?
In patients with hearing impairment or auditory processing disease, the ability of directional hearing almost always suffers. The AT1000-PED pediatric audiometry system with the new ERKI localization system enables accurate determination of directional hearing.
What do phoniatry and paedaudiology mean?
AURITEC has been working for departments of phoniatrics and pediatric audiology for many years. We have earned the reputation of "Experts in Child Diagnostic" with many discussions and events with specialists in this field.
"The tasks of phoniatrics and pedaudiology are diagnostics, therapy and research in the areas of voice disorders, childhood hearing disorders, perceptual disorders, disorders of speech and language development, acquired speech and language disorders (e.g. aphasias) and swallowing disorders. The greatest importance is attached to interdisciplinary cooperation with otolaryngology, pediatrics, neurology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics and other specialist disciplines. There is also cooperation with psychology, education, special education and hearing aid acoustics." (Source: German Society for Phoniatrics and Pediatric Audiology" dgpp e.V.)
How to measure the audition of a baby ?
After 3 months of age, infants respond to sound stimuli by pointing in the direction of the sound source, turning their head or eyes. Sometimes they also reach toward the sound source.
With modern conditioning tools such as the Looky Box or speakers equipped with lights, these reactions can be supported and the babies can be animated to perform extensive auditory testing.
In addition, objective measurements such as OAE or ABR measurements are performed.
How does children audiometry work?
From the age of one year, children respond consciously to sound stimuli. Conditioning with play audiometry or the use of images with the VRA (Visual Reinforcement Audiometry) viewer allows a fairly accurate determination of the hearing threshold.
Hearing testing is done with free-field audiometry. Here the selection of the right loudspeakers plays an important role.
The medical act of hearing testing fades into the background for the child. The game or the reward is an important motivation. The examination can be performed from a point in time with headphones such as the AT1350c children's headphones.
Why is the adapted furniture concept as important as the clinical audiometer?
In addition to the selection of a good audiometer, the setup of the audiometry booth plays an important role.
The patient's head should be at a distance of one meter from the loudspeakers. The height of the loudspeakers in turn depends on the height of the ears to be measured.
AURITEC sets up audiometry rooms in such a way that these standards are respected. To ensure that both children and adults can be tested with an audiometer, AURITEC builds height-adjustable tables.
And because children like it colorful, AURITEC's children's audiometry tables are available in many colors.
