Represented at the "EUHA" from 16.-18.10.2019 HörTech gGmbH and the Cluster of Excellence Hearing4all will present current research results and user-oriented applications for hearing acoustics and the hearing system industry at the 64th International Congress of Hearing Professionals from 16 to 18 October 2019 in Nuremberg. The focus this year will be on products that support the hearing care professional in the consultation with the customer and a short, varied programme of lectures at the exhibition stand.
digit triplets test - anonymous, non-binding and fast
Digitalization and the World Wide Web allow customers to do almost everything from home today. In the future only those will win on the market who manage to lure the customer from his sofa into the shop. The digit triplets test is a secure and easy to use screening procedure that confronts clients at home with an initial assessment of their hearing loss on a smartphone or PC. If this test on the acoustician's website is directly linked to the comprehensive offer, the probability of looking for a solution directly increases - the step to an on-site acoustician becomes more and more probable. The Fördergemeinschaft Gutes Hören uses and supports this test and HörTech offers contract partners attractive offers.
Hearing loss simulator: The power of relatives in counselling interviews
The proportion of hearing-impaired people who visit an acoustician not because they are self-motivated but because of pressure from their relatives is extremely high. It is therefore not uncommon that not only the client with hearing loss, but also the partner, children or grandchildren are present during the first consultation. The hearing loss simulator offers the simple possibility to make the hearing loss audible and comprehensible. For the person affected, it is a confirmation of the difficult situations and for the relatives it is often an "aha" experience that leads to much more understanding. In addition to hearing loss, the software offers the simulation of a hearing system and thus impressively presents the obvious solution to the problem: the purchase of hearing systems!
Matrixtests available for more than 60% of the world's population
The International Matrixtest is available in 18 different languages and offers the hearing care professional modern speech audiometry at rest and in background noise. Matrixtests depict everyday situations (entire sentences must be understood in background noise) and are at the same time a very accurate measuring instrument. Therefore, the methods are excellent for testing the performance of hearing aids in realistic situations and showing differences between different devices.
Intensive course in audiological technology - the crash course for all newcomers
The audiological technique is an interdisciplinary field of work in which both physicians and engineers, computer scientists, technicians, hearing aid acousticians, psychologists and pedagogues are active. A colourful group with different educational backgrounds. Those who start out in the industry must familiarise themselves with the topic and get to know typical practices in their working environment.
