Mimosa Acoustics will develop a portable binaural audiological device, based on our successful HearID system. HearID is a clinical system for otoacoustic emission and middle-ear power analysis testing; it is FDA(510k) approved and CE-marked. The new system will have the ability to conduct a variety of audiological tests especially for use in hearing-conservation programs, including: flexible otoacoustic emissions tests (transient-evoked, distortion-product, stimulus-frequency, and spontaneous), with the ability to easily customize test protocols; medial-olivocochlear reflex tests with contralateral elicitors; middle-ear power analysis, including middle-ear reflectance tests using tones and chirp stimuli; automated pure-tone audiometry tests; novel tests to detect functional hearing loss; and simultaneous otoacoustic emission-middle-ear reflectance tests. Enhanced calibration techniques will improve validity and reliability. A simple-to-use user interface will include a personnel database, access to all tests, ability to compare tests to find significant changes, and the ability to interface with military health databases.
