Using autoREMfit for Hearing Aid Fitting and Verification: Evidence of Accuracy and Reliability

This clinical study by John Pumford, AuD, and Gus Mueller, PhD, examines the new autoREMfit application of Audioscan VerifitLINK as integrated into Signia Connexx hearing aid fitting software. The results reveal good fit-to-target accuracy (RMSE ~2 dB; 65 dB SPL input) for two different audiograms and coupling systems. Test-retest reliability was excellent with values no greater than 1 dB at any frequency. Clinical benefits of this autoREMfit collaboration are discussed.
