A unique and patented method
DPOAE Threshold Estimation is a unique and patented method to estimate the physiological hearing loss of the cochlea!
DPOAE Threshold Estimation is not to be mixed up with an Audiogram. An audiogram includes the whole pathway of hearing and the reaction/performance of the tester and patient. DPOAE Threshold Estimation focusses on the physiological place, where hearing loss most often has it’s root cause – inside the cochlea!
Basing on optimized stimulus settings and implementation in Sentiero, the information derived from DPOAE Threshold Estimation is most valuable for children and non cooperative patients. But also for monitoring the status of the cochlea over a longer time period and for having a means of reliable, objective measurements for the function of the cochlear amplifier, DPOAE Threshold estimation is a valuable tool for the clinician. Diagnostics for kids and prior hearing aid fitting procedures can be sped up in time an quality!
