Otometrics, a Danish company that develops, manufactures and markets computer-based audiological, otoneurologic and vestibular instrumentation in more than 85 countries under the MADSEN®, AURICAL®, HORTMANN® and ICS® brand names, will be exhibiting at the International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians (EUHA 2016), held October 19-21, 2016 in Hannover, Germany.
Hearing care professionals and others attending EUHA 2016 who want to learn about recent innovations from Otometrics, including a new AURICAL feature called ProbeTube Assistant that offers a new way to place the probe tube during verification in the hearing aid fitting process, can visit the Otometrics booth (Stand B-42) in the exhibit hall. Both ProbeTube Assistant and the company’s new immittance solution, MADSEN Zodiac, will be on display.
“EUHA is a great opportunity to meet new and existing customers and update them on the latest developments from Otometrics, and how we can help them work more efficiently with their hearing care customers,” said Engin Aksel, a sales manager for Otometrics in Germany.
Visitors to the Otometrics booth (Stand B-42) will see demonstrations showing how AURICAL and OTOsuite® audiology software helps clinicians expand their hearing care services through a more efficient workflow. There will be hands-on demonstrations and presentations of new features and solutions, and plenty of opportunities to ask questions and network with Otometrics representatives and other professionals while enjoying award-winning coffee prepared by the 2015 Barista Champion of Germany – Gregor Dattner.
“We look forward to showing our customers how the new ProbeTube Assistant functionality in AURICAL guides you to a correct position of the probe tube during PMM,” said Peter Kossek, senior product manager at Otometrics. “Probe tube placement can be a challenging part of the hearing and verification process. Placed too shallow, your measurements become inaccurate. Placed too deep you may touch the eardrum. The ProbeTube Assistant in AURICAL provides on-screen guided placement of the probe tube so clinicians can be absolutely sure the probe tube is placed correctly.”
In addition to the ProbeTube Assistant feature, AURICAL offers new accessories including ear hooks and longer probe tubes with easy-to-see millimeter markings for easier and more stable placement. With its modular approach and long tradition of consistently adding innovations that help hearing care professionals boost fitting efficiency, AURICAL continues to be the most complete, modular fitting solution available today, offering hearing care professionals a flexible and efficient way to achieve fitting excellence while being a sound investment for their clinic.
Also on display will be the new immittance solution from Otometrics, MADSEN Zodiac, which brings more control, confidence and efficiency to immittance testing.
“Many hearing care dispensers are looking for an immittance solution to use in their hearing care clinics and this is the perfect solution,” said Aksel. “The new MADSEN Zodiac is a good example of user-centric design with particular focus on the probes and the way clinicians work during immittance testing. There is a Quick Check probe that is ergonomic, easy to use, and lightweight – ideal for immittance screening – helping clinicians to achieve faster and more stable placement and a reliable seal.”
AURICAL and MADSEN Zodiac run on the OTOsuite® software platform, including the latest version 4.81 that is available for download from November 15, 2016. Modern, intuitive and easy to learn, OTOsuite supports the entire client journey from diagnostics and counseling to fitting and verification from one application.
