Siemens Hearing Instruments has released a number of innovative audiology devices aimed at improving workflow and reaching a wider range of care environments.
The company’s new audiometers and digital video otoscopes extend the choice available from one specialist point of contact, promising to simplify procurement, save clinical time and reduce costs.
New audiology devices now available from Siemens include:
- Otopod and Amplitude Audiometers – tiny, portable wireless audiometers suitable for use in the fitting room, home or bedside
- Kamplex PA5 Paediatric Audiometer – a free field audiometer for testing children’s hearing with one-handed operation
- a high-resolution USB Digital Video Otoscope, which links directly to a PC.
The new devices join Siemens’ existing range of audiology workflow solutions. A wider range of audiological accessories is also now available.
“Our single approach to providing a wide range of audiology workflow solutions gives audiologists more choice and specialist advice,” said Mark Laben, Product and Marketing Manager at Siemens Hearing Instruments.
“Healthcare departments and practices are facing increased pressures to invest wisely and redesign audiology workflow processes. By having workflow that integrates together, audiologists will have more time to spend with the patient on quality matters such as talking through fittings and answering concerns.”
Based in Crawley, West Sussex, Siemens Hearing Instruments provides digital hearing instruments and software, patient management systems and audiology equipment to the NHS and retail dispensers in the UK.
