A§E: because the cochlea is more than audiometry alone...
A§E is a set of psycho-acoustical tests to be used by the professional audiologist. It is conceived to test hearing impaired children and adults who are typically aided with a conventional hearing aid, cochlear implant or other device. All tests are speech- and language independent and supraliminal (above-threshold). All tests now come with a self-test option. Drag and drop a number of tests in the patient's basket and let the patient perform the tests on his own!
A§E contains tests at the level of detection, discrimination and identification:
- to assess the intensity coding of sound (loudness scaling)
- to assess the spectral coding of sound (phoneme detection, discrimination and identification)
- to assess the low frequency temporal coding of sound (intonation tasks, word stress pattern, sentence intonation)
- In addition it contains a two-loudspeaker localization task to assess the central fusion of binaural hearing.
Includes a speech audiometry module reducing the test time by 66% !!!
