The truly automated all-in-one hearing screener

Only the Echo-Screen® Hearing Screener combines advanced TEOAE, DPOAE and AABR® technologies with fully automated results and completely standardized, pre-set screening parameters.

All results are based on the same standardized, objective criteria:
Automatic pass/refer results that require no interpretation
Preset screening parameters that cannot be adjusted
Minimizes the risk of user error and test variability
Transient Evoked Otoacoustic Emissions (TEOAE)
Trusted by clinicians for more than ten years:
Able to screen for even a mild hearing loss
Testing frequency range: 1.5 to 3.5 kHz

Distortion Product Otoacoustic Emissions (DPOAE)
Frequency specific screening: 2, 2.5, 3.2, and 4 kHz

AABR® Technology
Binomial statistics signal detection, the same method used with the ALGO® Newborn Hearing Screener:
Necessary for detecting auditory neuropathy1
Optimized for screening newborns
Testing frequency range: 2 to 4 kHz

Performance validated in numerous clinical studies1:
High sensitivity and specificity
– minimizing false pass and false refer results

Robust signal detection
Artifact rejection system distinguishes between external noise and actual patient response
Fast test times
– TEOAE averages 20 seconds
– DPOAE averages 30 seconds
– AABR technology averages 2 minutes
