Not having to rely on a stationary audiometric booth to carry out testing makes hearing healthcare far more affordable, for both the clinician and the patient, who also saves on travel costs and other related expenses.
By employing medical technology such as tele-audiology, clinically validated portable audiometry empowers healthcare workers, clinicians, organisations, companies, philanthropists, and even private individuals around the globe to offer faster, simpler and more affordable hearing healthcare, without ever compromising on quality of testing, or accuracy of results.
This includes facilitating rapid, high-volume testing in occupational health environments, where time is always of the essence.
By using a portable audiometer instead of a stationary sound booth, businesses that are required by law to regularly screen the hearing of their employees can now carry out such testing much faster and, very importantly, much more cost-efficiently.
Audiometers specifically designed for rapid, high-volume workplace screening are not only fast and affordable, but also extremely robust, as they are designed specifically to withstand knocks, drops and other workplace accidents.
Such screening audiometers are widely used in many different occupational environments, most often in on-site settings such as mines, offshore drilling environments and casinos, to name but a few.
This is what occupational health officer Frank Aversa from Asanko Gold Mine had to say about his experience of using a Kuduwave:
“eMoyo has created one of the greatest inventions in audiology. It is indisputably simple, accurate, consistent and valid as compared to other-form manual and automated audiometers. It saved my clinic a huge sum of dollars to not have to soundproof an audiometry room.”
