Interacoustics announced the recent introduction of a new device for measuring otoacoustic emissions (OAE). Lyra is “a PC-based and dedicated product for clinical OAE that provides fast and reliable DPOAE and TEOAE measurements, reducing test times to the benefit of clinicians and patients alike,” according to the company’s announcement.

When all you need is OAE

Lyra offers a software suite, which Interacoustics says helps enable detailed interpretation and analysis of test data. OtoAccess compatibility and easy navigation helps ensure “a simple workflow for the clinician, leaving more time for the patient and the secure handling of patient data.”

Bayesian weighted averaging helps combat noise, reducing test times by “up to 50%.” Lyra’s automatic in-ear-stimulus calibration helps ensure “an accurate stimulus level, and in turn accurate results.”

“Lyra optimizes the way we measure OAEs, in line with Interacoustics’ dedication to deliver OAE instruments that are second to none,” said Interacoustics’ OAE Specialist, Peter Bray, PhD.

Have the protocols your way

The Lyra OAE Suite, also known from the Interacoustics Eclipse, includes a range of test protocols that are said to suit a variety of patient groups and test purposes. Protocols can be created or adjusted to suit specific clinical needs, and tools such as Lyra’s historic overlay help make “thorough diagnostic OAE assessments possible.”

Portable yet powerful

Lyra can be connected via USB to your PC. Lyra is powered by the USB connection, helping to eliminate the need for an external power supply. This helps ensures a small footprint and high portability, according to the company. In addition, it can help decrease installation time when moving between locations, including home visits.
