Use Inventis Trumpet for fitting verification and validation

Trumpet for fitting verification and validation

The purpose of hearing aid verification is to verify that the appropriate gain/output is being achieved.

The validation of the verification process is also paramount to ensure that the end user obtains what they wanted or required, not only in terms of addressing audibility and intelligibility but also in terms of their perception of loudness.

2022 Florida Academy of Audiology Convention
Orlando (FL) August 4-5, 2022 

The Florida Academy of Audiology is an organization with the aim of representing Florida Audiologists and the people they serve through advocacy, education and collaboration.

The 2022 FLAA Convention will be held on August 4 and 5 at the Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek in Orlando. 
The convention's busy agenda includes topics ranging from tinnitus, hidden hearing loss, remote care, music training, misphonia... But not just that!
Therefore, the 2022 FLAA Convention represents a unique opportunity for updating, learning and knowledge!

On this occasion we will be at the forefront to show you our innovative audiological solutions and Maestro software, the core of Inventis' instruments set-up. As an orchestra has its conductor, so Maestro allows a full interaction of all Inventis equipment! It will be more than easy to control all the Inventis units, switching smoothly from Audiometry to Tympanometry, Fitting and Balance. Maestro also allows the clinician to store the tests result in Maestro database (or in Noah) and to create a pdf report containing the patient data and the exams results, everything in the same place in order to help the user making easier the management of the daily practice.

Furthermore, we will be glad to present Satellite, our revolutionary tele-audiology solution that allows professionals to interact with patients and to remotely perform complete hearing assessments in real time. It will also be possible to book a trial with Satellite during the Convention!

Extended high-frequency audiometry in research and clinical practice

Extended high-frequency audiometry in research and clinical practice

The sensitivity of young healthy ears extends to 20 kHz, and there is increasing evidence that testing in the Extended High-Frequency (EHF) region, above 8 kHz, might provide valuable additional information.

Basal (EHF) cochlear regions are especially sensitive to the effects of aging, disease, ototoxic drugs, and possibly noise exposure. Hence, EHF loss may be an early warning of damage, useful for diagnosis and for monitoring hearing health.

Furthermore, EHF loss impacts sound localization, and may also have direct effects on speech perception in noisy environments.

Inventis audiometers Cello and Piano Plus are the best solution to perform High-Frequency audiometry! They both allow to determine the hearing threshold in the range of frequencies between 8 kHz and 20 kHz, in air conduction using the supplied high frequency headphones, or in free field.

APR 2022 ● Measuring and Assessing Aided Audibility Using the SII

Webinar April 13, 2022

APR 13, 2022 ● 06:00 pm (CET)
"Measuring and Assessing Aided Audibility Using the SII"

The Speech Intelligibility Index (SII) is a quantification of the proportion of speech information that is both audible and usable for a listener. It is a number from 0% to 100% which is strictly correlated to the intelligibility of speech. For instance, an SII score of 25% indicates that almost half of the speech for a specific level will be understandable for the patient, while an SII score of 80% indicates that, most of the speech, will be understandabl......

Oldenburg International MATRIX TEST: now available with Inventis TRUMPET!

Matrix Test with Inventis Trumpet AUD

Speech communication is one of the most important aspects of the human auditory system. Therefore, the diagnostics and rehabilitation of hearing loss should include speech audiometry in noise.

Purpose of the Matrix Test is to find the signal/noise ratio (SNR) that allows the patient to understand 50% of the words (SRT, Speech Recognition Threshold). That is done through a guided, automatic, simple and repeatable procedure.

Speech communication is one of the most important aspects of the human auditory system. Therefore, the diagnostics and rehabilitation of hearing loss should include speech audiometry in noise.

Purpose of the Matrix Test is to find the signal/noise ratio (SNR) that allows the patient to understand 50% of the words (SRT, Speech Recognition Threshold). That is done through a guided, automatic, simple and repeatable procedure.

Oldenburg International Matrix Test is now available with Inventis Trumpet!
Connect your Trumpet AUD to your computer, select the patient from Maestro database or Noah and launch the Matrix Test.

The patient is asked to repeat sentences of 5 random words, presented with a background noise, and generated starting from a matrix with 10 subjects, 10 verbs, 10 numerical adjectives, 10 object complements, 10 qualifying adjectives. This way, up to 100,000 different sentences can be generated which makes it impossible to memorize them.

The examiner marks on the screen what words have been correctly heard by the patient and the software then adapt automatically the SNR of the next sentence accordingly. 
Therefore, the examiner does not have to speak or understand the patient’s native language to score the test!  

The complete exam includes 20 sentences and can be managed through:

  • supraural headphones (TDH 39, DD45)
  • insertion headphones (ER-3C)
  • Trumpet integrated speaker
  • up to 3 external (passive) speakers connected to the Trumpet, usable 2 at a time

At the end of the exam, the hearing care professional will have an indisputable data on his hand: the exact value of the patient's SRT, which is an objective value but nor always easily to measure with a standard speech test.

SRT = +5? the patient understands about 50% of words when the stimulus is 5 dB louder than the noise.
SRT = -2? the patient understands about 50% of words when the stimulus is 2 dB lower than the noise.
The lower the SRT value, the better the recognition of speech in noise will be.

Starting from the SRT value, the clinician will be able to identify the hearing aid more easily to be used for rehabilitation.

Currently, the Matrix Test is one of the most popular adaptive speech tests especially for evaluating the results obtained with hearing aids and cochlear implants. Its availability in over twenty different languages has made it possible to compare the results at an international level, thus making it a standard in the audiological prosthetic evaluation. 

MATRIX – KEY FEATURES

  • relevant for daily life
  • quick and reliable threshold measurement
  • unlimited repeated measurements possible
  • suitable for any degree of hearing loss
  • wide language portfolio
