A lightweight and portable Screening Audiometer capable of audiometric screening without a sound booth and is the ideal pc-based audiometer for occupational health and hearing conservation programs.
The KUDUwave integrates dual pure tone screening audiometers, an audiometric headset and sound-booth into a single, lightweight device. By removing the need for a sound booth hearing screening can now truly be offered almost anywhere without compromising on quality.
Speed and accuracy are essential in meeting the demands of modern occupational health screening and other mass screening programmes, the KUDUwave pca-based software is designed for maximum efficiency and ease of use.
Create and customise automatic testing protocols on the go for repeatable, reliable and consistent results. Save valuable time on site with efficient workflows, unlimited electronic medical record storage and data synchronisation.
Time-saving, efficient audiometry almost anywhere without compromising on quality.
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 the same level of attenuation as a standard sound booth with significant sound blocking ability in most frequencies.
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.
If the noise has affected the tone presented it is automatically marked and displayed on the live audiogram view. The clinician is then able to stop testing until the noise subsides or continue and repeat the tone later in the test.
In automatic test mode, affected tones can be set to retest later in the test automatically. Noise levels are also indicated in the final report as a quality control measure.
Boothless Audiometry presents multiple benefits and opportunities for clinicians and patients alike.
The Freedom To Move
Boothless audiometry gives you the power of mobility. Reach patients in previously difficult to access locations such as remote mines or oil rigs. Without having to transport a soundbooth, these and other remote locations are now easy to reach and service without compromising on the quality of care provided.
Reducing Anxiety and Improving Patient Care
Patients can receive more personal, face to face consultation from the clinician rather than through a small window. Patients often complain of anxiety and claustrophobia when tested in a sound booth. Patients now experience stress-free open-air hearing testing in comfort.
Real portability means that access to care is available to everyone. Whether they have difficulty moving, use a wheelchair, or are otherwise unable to get into a sound booth, patients can now benefit from hearing testing anywhere they are.
