Digital systems for ABR and OAE intended for objective audiometry of newborns, children and adults

One of the greatest human tragedies is language environment falling out. It is especially terrible for small children as total or partial loss of hearing usually results in language delay.

At present many developed countries in the world accomplish universal newborn hearing screening program. Regular hearing studies (monitoring) of children at risk for hearing loss and also children suffering from otitis or middle ear inflammation are very important.

Objective audiometry is the only method allowing to detect the hearing impairment in early stage, included in the arsenal of obstetricians, neonatologists and pediatricians.

Objective audiometry has several tools. The most widely-spread are the two of them: auditory brainstem response (ABR) and otoacoustic emission (OAE) study. Each method has its own advantages, drawbacks and field of application.

ABR provides information concerning the whole auditory tract including pathways and is irreplaceable if the hearing impairments are the result of neurological disease.

OAE in more convenient for screening study as it takes little time. It is very important also because the long-term immobilization of a child is sometimes impossible. Several variants of this method exist, but in practice the most often used ones are transient evoked otoacoustic emission (TEOAE) and distortion product otoacoustic emission (DPOAE).

The creation of digital system for ABR and OAE high-quality registration is an extremely difficult task. Our Company specialists managed to solve it perfectly and we are glad to offer you digital systems for ABR and OAE Neuro-Audio.

Also, Neuro-Audio can be used in psychiatry, professional eligibility determination, and clinical and forensic medical examinations. Moreover, the patient state (e.g. sleep or vigil) and even his/her negative attitude to the checkup don't affect the results.

ABR and OAE solutions

We offer the choice between our handheld ABR/OAE screener called Neuro-Audio Screener and the ABR/OAE system called the Neuro-Audio. The Neuro-Audio can be equipped with any one or a combination of software modules. This will make up a fully integrated system for OAE and ABR.
