Development of an Automated Hearing Screening System – Validity and Reliability

    Project: Research project

    Project Details

    Description

    Pure-tone audiometry is by far the most common form of hearing test. It is typically conducted by audiologists or trained health care professionals in a sound-proof booth. However, such audiological services may not be readily accessible in areas where professional staff and/or audiological equipment are not available. By implementing an automated self-administered hearing test, more patient-contact time could be made available for professional staff to conduct sophisticated tests and manage patients who are difficult to test. This study thus aims to develop a tablet based automated hearing screening program specifically designed for elderly.
