A "Small" Change in Verification: A Compact Live Speech REM SystemBy Poe, Gay Hosking, MA; Ross, Terry; Hearing Review, Vol. 12, No. 13, pp. 38-40
Publication Date: December 2005
Article discusses Real Ear Measurement (REM) Speech from MedRx, which was designed to make REMs easier via live speech in order to verify amplification. The system establishes the client’s hearing levels and uncomfortable listening levels, and then sets the target area for amplification. Hearing instrument output is then measured using the REM probe microphone while speaking to the client. Evidence exists that states that clinicians should perform REM on all of their clients, though the test is not universally utilized in the fitting and verification process. The authors contend that the system provides an efficient way to administer the important testing, and to obtain the most useful information possible.
