Now Available: New Digital Instrument Testing Suite for the VerifitBy Hearing Review - The Insider,
Publication Date: February 21, 2008
Review of Viewport™ from Audioscan®, a complete testing suite for fitting, counseling, and verifying the function of digital hearing instruments. The new test suite, available on the Verifit system, allows the hearing-care professional to verify and demonstrate audibility in four steps: (1) objectively verifying that audibility is delivered using Audioscan’s Speechmap® fitting environment; (2) verifying and demonstrating the performance of directional function using a real-time directional test that visually shows the separation of curves between front and rear microphones; (3) verifying and demonstrating the utility of noise reduction, showing the amount of noise reduction provided; and (4) showing the benefit of feedback reduction systems using the feedback-reduction test, which also reveals incipient feedback. All of these tests are integrated and presented on one screen or printout, and can be saved to a USB stick or network file.
