Largo, Fla — MedRx Inc has released QuickSIN™ on all AVANT clinical and diagnostic audiometers as a standard test protocol. QuickSIN, developed by EtymÕtic Research, is a test protocol that is designed to quickly and easily measure the ability of the listener to hear in noisy situations.

Speech understanding in noise cannot be reliably predicted just by testing with pure tones or other standard audiometric tests. QuickSin is reported to be easy to process and evaluate. In addition, the company says that patients report that QuickSIN tests sound just like the problem they have in the real world.

QuickSin results can be used to make patient-specific treatment recommendations, such as hearing aids, directional microphones, array microphones, or FM systems. The protocol may also help hearing clinicians to counsel patients and set realistic expectations and goals for any recommended treatments.
