Detailed analysis of central hearing functions
Testing with Central Audiometer and BASS 1.0 / 2.0
A well-founded hearing training initially captures central the hearing functions and consequently the listening comprehension status in an assessable way.
Every day you get to know people with problems in hearing – they still seem to listen well, but they poorly understand spoken words. This applies to the seven years olds with school problems, teenagers who are often tired during a school day (despite sufficient sleep!), as well as the adult Plus40-year-olds, who interfer in the everyday noise. Also at the hearing aids supply of the generation of Plus60, a look at the central hearing functions for better listening comprehension is essential.
You will test quickly and accurately basic central language-related hearing functions with the MediTECH ® brain audiometer system. The automated evaluation offers you and the persons concerned reliable statements on the current abilities of the central hearing; standard data or age reference values provide the basis for the related funding opportunities. The process is solid scientifically proven in several studies.
You have various options for this analysis: BASS 1.0 and BASS 2.0 are our quick test analysis programs for your computer, as well as the AUDIO4LAB module Central Audiometer, the hardware solution that offers you training programs for your clients in addition to the comprehensive hearing analysis.
AUDIO4LAB - Modul brain audiometer
8 central hearing and perception functions using standard data / age reference values
Normtest, test and training settings, additional setting changeable and storable
Computer based evaluation, documentation and report creation via key use
Effectiveness of the process through several studies systematically proven
Measurement of speech understanding in noise (PST sound discrimination test)
Reply message by clients via the control unit.
No pressing 2 answer keys for „Medium-stimulus“- therefore: reduction of false answers through intuitive response message
The necessary test steps are performed with the central audiometer (brain audiometer).
BASS 2.0 - Brain Audiometer Screening Solution
Reliable recording and evaluation of central auditory functions
BASS 2.0 is an extremely easy to use and elegant software platform for capturing key functions of the central hearing functions and a rating of the performance of the tested person. Each partial test takes 2-3 minutes. The system provides easy-to-understand video explanations of each test step. An automated evaluation takes place immediately afterwards, which can be discussed live with the tested person.
After testing, a comprehensive report can be generated via the system. The test steps are explained in terms of their significance for speech and listening comprehension and classified for the person being tested. The measured hearing age is ejected - and the further the measured value moves away from the ideal value, the greater the resulting training potential. BASS professionally and convincingly conveys the importance of central hearing functions and also enables you to record and document the training progress and age development of your clients.
Systematically record and evaluate 7 central auditory functions in a smart software solution.
Main screen BASS
Intuitive user guidance with easy-to-understand explanations for testers and clients.
For each BASS function, a catchy and client-friendly video conveys the task.
Key functions and description
The Audio fitness procedure verifies the following important central hearing functions:
||Important for the reliable differentiation of short sounds like b-d-f-g-k-p-t-w|
||Significant for the filtering of useful sound from interference sound|
|Pitch discrimination||To distinguish between vowels and to decipher the speech melody|
|Acoustic bilateral patterns||For the reliable interaction of the two halves of the brain|
|Auditory Choice Reaction Time||Quickly and reliably (even in noise) recognize and distinguish sounds|
|Frequency Pattern Recognition||Important for differentiating the speech melody|
|Duration Pattern Recognition||Important for deciphering the rhythm of speech|
|Phoneme Discrimination in words||Recognize and distinguish sounds in the word reliably|
