New Piece of Equipment for Audiology

Scannappeal has funded another  much needed piece of equipment, this time for Audiology.

The Maico OAE Screener is designed to measure the function of the outer hair cells of the inner ear as well as monitoring the function of the outer and middle ear.

  • It is fast and portable with the ability to test newborn babies, children and adults.
  • It has an easy to view screen and portable printer.
  • It can also be linked to a computer for more detailed test analysis

The benefits to the patient is that they should not have to wait for a screening diagnostic appointment or need to be seen at a different hospital and that their care can be prioritised accordingly.
