Interacoustics Titan: Impedance, OAE, ABRIS, and Wideband Tympanometry
Analysis of the middle ear, with a simple probe “click” that covers the 226 to 8000 Hz range instead of a probe tone that only measures at 226 Hz, with hundreds of tympanograms that are visualized in an illustrative 3D landscape. With a single pressure sweep, Wideband Tympanometry (WBT) allows comprehensive analysis of middle-ear status over a frequency range that includes the full speech spectrum. Combined with OAE and ABR, WBT provides missing data about middle ear conductive issues that will enhance a diagnosis based either on OAE or Automated ABR alone.
