Grason Stadler (GSI), a clinical instrumentation company, has announced the release of its new clinical middle-ear analyzer, the GSI TympStar Pro™.

According to the company, the TympStar Pro provides middle-ear evaluation with precise diagnostics and reliable mechanics. The TympStar Pro features a flexible design that moves through a complete range of middle-ear testing for patient populations from infants through adults.

Built with the clinician in mind, the TympStar Pro is intended to provide comprehensive clinical options with an intuitive user interface. The company says the new Tymp Touch technology combines easy-to-read options and a logical layout to ensure the clinician is able to focus on the patient instead of the equipment. The 10-inch color display allows the clinician to change parameters with one touch. The probe design ensures quick hermetic seals on every patient, and the user can start or stop tests, or change ears, from the enhanced shoulder box.

Protocols can be configured to optimize efficiency and workflow; the flexibility of pre-defined protocols saves time and creates consistency in testing procedures. All components of admittance (Y/B/G) are recorded and stored simultaneously for each tympanogram and each probe tone to improve diagnostic specificity. GSI notes that users can perform reflex threshold testing and obtain artifact-free acoustic reflexes using the multiplex pulsed-tone stimulation.

The TympStar Pro can be used independently or with a computer, and the company says that this stand-alone instrument offers seamless data transfer to a computer. Complete results may be transferred to GSI SuiteTM and Noah, or integrated with EMR/EHR systems such as AudBase for a direct HL7 interface.
