HörTech and Hearing4all at the 21st DGA Annual Conference
"Listening: from sound wave to cognition" is the motto of this year's annual conference of the German Society of Audiology (DGA), which will take place in Halle from 28 February to 3 March. As part of the industrial exhibition, HörTech gGmbH and the Hearing4all cluster of excellence will present the latest results from application-oriented Oldenburg hearing research.
Various demonstrators show the versatile application possibilities of "TASCAR", a toolbox for acoustic scene creation and rendering, in the development and evaluation of hearing instrument algorithms. TASCAR is a software solution for creating virtual acoustic environments: Moving sound sources are psychophysically correctly simulated in real time and can be synchronized with video sources or interactive computer graphics for immersive, interactive user studies.
Based on the latest research results from the University of Oldenburg, HörTech introduces the "Oldenburger Messprogramme 2.0" with a multitude of new features. The software, which is well established in clinics and research, provides audiologists with an instrument with which modern methods of hearing diagnostics can be practically carried out with a flexible and modular system. The range extends from the classical speech test to loudness scaling and modern methods of speech audiometry at rest and in noise.
The Hearing4all Cluster of Excellence is pursuing the new concept of Common Audiological Functional Parameters (CAFPAs) in order to arrive at an "audiological precision medicine" with precise, individualized diagnostics and the combination of even incomplete audiological data from different clinics in a "Big Data" concept. In order to gather valuable information on the connection of CAFPAs to audiological tests and findings/supplies, doctoral student Mareike Buhl is conducting a survey of ENT doctors, clinical audiologists and hearing care professionals as part of the 21st DGA annual conference.
