Live WebinarWed, Aug 21, 2019 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #328081 Hour

Today, most all major hearing aid manufacturers have partnered with one or more probe-mic companies to facilitate autoREMfit. That is, the interaction between the fitting software and the real-ear measures allow for automatically fitting to prescriptive targets. The notion is that this approach is faster than traditional verification, speeding up the fitting process. But is the procedure valid? Is it reliable? Is it as good as "clinician fit?" That's what we'll talk about in this webinar.

Signia CEU courses
Presented by Catherine Jons, AuD
Recorded WebinarAudio
Course: #33123Level: Intermediate1 Hour
An important component of a successful hearing aid fitting is providing patients with a natural sounding own voice.

This webinar presents research findings using Signia’s new Own Voice Processing, demonstrating benefits for maintaining own-voice naturalness with both open and closed fittings, and for different fitting rationales while preserving the benefits of directional-microphone and noise-reduction signal processing.
