A New Collection Method for the Collection of AEPsBy Kurtz, Isaac, MHSc, PEng; Hearing Review, Vol. 11, No. 3, pp. 64-66

Article discusses the Vivosonic Amplitrode system, which is a method for hearing professionals to collect auditory evoked potentials (AEP). The system utilizes the amplification of AEP signals at the electrode site. The conductive portion, or lead wire, between the electrodes and the amplifier is absent or extremely short. This significantly reduces non-physiologic noise introduced into the signal detected by the amplifier. The amplifier is thus designed to amplify a signal with a much higher signal-to-noise ratio when compared to conventional arrangements. An additional benefit of the Vivosonic Amplitrode system is the much smaller size and easier handling of the AEP device.
