Facilities available

Hearing test

PTA(Pure Tone Audiometry) test involves the use of pure tones i.e. tones which can be accurately provided at desired frequencies. The test monitors the exact hearing thresholds of the individual for the particular tone at different frequency levels. This is a subjective type test which requires active participation/ cooperation by the patient. This test can bring out the degree, configuration and type of hearing loss if any.

Impedance Audiometry(IA) is the most commonly used and preferred method of testing pathologies/ conditions in the middle ear, the mobility of the Tympanic Membrane or the ear drum as well as the bones in the middle ear region. The test is performed using a probe tube which creates a varying pressure in the ear canal thus measuring the energy transmission through the middle ear. The test can not only determine the hearing pathology in the middle ear but can be also used alongside the results of the PTA Testing to provide effective diagnosis to the patient.

Speech therapy

Speech therapy is the evaluation and treatment of communication and swallowing disorders. It is done with initial screening for communication and swallowing disorders and continues with assessment and diagnosis, consultation for the provision of advice regarding management, intervention and treatment, and provision counseling and other follow up services for these disorders.

Hearing aid (Digital)

This evaluation provides assessment of suitability for wearing hearing aid(s), determines appropriate hearing aid parameters, and measures hearing aid performance. Digital hearing aids helps to process and separate out troublesome background noise while simultaneously enhancing critical speech signals necessary for understanding.
