The KUDUwave Plus is a portable diagnostic audiometer offering diagnostic audiological testing without the need of a sound booth.
The KUDUwave is an all-in-one testing solution for any practice offering high-fidelity testing in a portable form factor that is able to take you anywhere. The soundbooth, audiometers and headset are integrated into a single, lightweight device for quality testing without compromise.
Ambi-dome technology is a combination of passive attenuation and real-time noise monitoring. It not only ensures attenuation levels comparable to standard audiometric booths but also ensures that testing is not affected by passing intermittent sounds. It is this combination that makes the KUDUwave the only audiometer validated for accurate diagnostic testing without a sound booth.
Reduce costs, save space, and offer mobile testing to patients far and wide.
Now you can provide access to hearing healthcare to patients where they are, not just where you keep your soundbooth.
Thinking Out Of The Booth
What boothless testing really means.
Unique to KUDUwave, Ambi-Dome is the combination of physical passive noise blocking and Active Noise Monitoring technology that provides the core boothless testing ability of all KUDUwave Audiometers.
Passive Attenuation is provided by the unique combination of dual circumaural ear cups and insert earphones, and offers background noise attenuation similar to that of a standard sound booth. With significant sound blocking ability improvements in certain frequencies. This makes the KUDUwave the only diagnostic audiometer capable of audiometric testing without a sound booth or sound treated room.
Active Noise Monitoring is an additional assurance against intermittent peaks in noise. Ambient sound is monitored by integrated external microphones in real time. This is simultaneously compared to the intensity and frequency of the tone being presented when testing air, bone and speech.
If noise will affect the tone presented it is marked and displayed on the live audiogram view. The clinician is then able to pause testing until the noise subsides or manually repeat the tone later in the test. Noise levels will also be indicated on the final report as a quality control measure. In automatic test mode, affected tones can be set to repeat later in the test automatically to ensure that every tone is heard.
