Professional counselling software

No one understands hearing loss like you. Our counselling tools will help you explain it

Outside of the audiology community, few people understand hearing loss and its effects on the person who suffers from it. While the person with hearing loss is living with those effects, they don’t understand the underlying causes or why they are having the problems that they are. An understanding of hearing loss and its impact is imperative for both the patient and the people that support them.

Because without better knowledge, there may not be a commitment to deal with the problem. Our counselling modules will allow you to explain the issues clearly and demonstrate with both visuals and audio where the problem lies and the effects it has.

Clear visuals, easy demonstration

We have designed a counselling module within the Primus solution that will allow you to deliver a straightforward explanation of the hearing loss of your patient. The module provides both audio and visual aids that will both simplify the description and allow both your patient and the support to understand the impact of the hearing loss fully. Visual aids assist the explanation, and audio aids enable both patients and their support to easier understand the effect.

Let them see & hear the hearing loss

We believe that the impact of hearing loss is best understood when both the patient and the support can see and hear the hearing loss. We designed the hearing loss simulator to offer you the ability to do just that. The hearing loss simulator delivers both a visual and audio representation of the hearing loss.

The audio element produced by the hearing loss simulator offers a clear audio demonstration of the hearing loss and its effects on the understanding of speech. This tool will allow you to explain what the hearing loss is and demonstrate how it is affecting your patient’s ability to hear. The audio segment enables the patient’s support to understand what effect the hearing loss has on the understanding of speech.

Let them understand the solution

When the patient and their support understand the problem, you need to be able to explain the solution just as clearly. We have designed a master hearing aid tool that will allow you to do just that. The Master Hearing Aid offers both a visual and audio representation of a hearing aid solution. It will enable both the support and the patient to understand what a hearing aid will deliver and how it will treat the effects of hearing loss.

Reinforcing the need, encouraging commitment

The commitment to treatment and compliance with hearing aids can only be encouraged when people understand clearly the issues at hand. We believe that our counselling module will allow you to explain and demonstrate those issues with ease. It enables the understanding of the problem and its real-world impact.

We believe that it supports both a moment of realisation; and a reinforcement of the need for a solution. Therefore, encouraging commitment and hearing aid use compliance.

Real Ear Measurement (REM)

Looking to increase patient satisfaction & reduce follow-ups? We have the solution for you

You can reduce follow-ups and cancellations with a simple to use process that isn’t time-consuming. If you are interested in optimising your patient’s satisfaction and reducing time spent on follow up appointments, we recommend that you carry out Real Ear Measurement (REM) as part of your fitting process.

Improve audibility & patient experience

Real Ear Measurements affect your patient’s experience positively due to improved audibility and increased satisfaction with the overall fitting experience. With the Primus REM module, binaural REMs will save both you and your clients time.

Classic REM in optimised views

The Primus interface makes it easy for you to work seamlessly with various audiology tasks. Primus software supports all the functions needed when performing real ear measurements, allowing you to optimise your workflow.

You can easily toggle between the sound pressure level (SPL) and Gain when you perform the classic measurements: Unaided, Occluded, Aided Response and Insertion Gain.

Primus Fitting Unit supports the newest NAL and DSL targets and uses an extensive sound library as well as high-frequency testing.

A Portable Solution

If you need to perform diagnostic tests or fit hearing instrument outside the clinic, bring the Primus Fitting Unit along. All your historical client data will follow. You only need to bring the power supply and a USB cord.

Speech Mapping

Looking for a tool that will help you achieve higher patient satisfaction & reduce follow up visits? Well then we have a solution for you

Speech mapping allows you to quickly and easily validate the fitting of a hearing aid. You achieve higher patient satisfaction and save time by reducing follow-up visits. Not just that, speech mapping allows your patients to see how hearing aids work to improve their hearing in an easy to understand visual manner.

Improve audibility & patient experience

Real Ear Measurements affect your patient’s experience positively due to improved audibility and increased satisfaction with the overall fitting experience. With the Primus REM module, binaural REMs will save both you and your clients time.

Why speech mapping?

Patients worry about hearing speech, not arbitrary sounds. Formulas, prescriptions  and predictions are not tangible for them. Speech mapping is an easy way of measuring the hearing instrument performance in the ear using real speech.

With speech mapping you can precisely place the speech signal into the individual patient’s preferred listening area. The use of familiar sounds in combination with probe microphones has proven exceptionally efficient in getting the most accurate personal fit and verification.

Helping your patients understand the benefits

The visual nature of speech mapping allows your patients to understand the benefits of their hearing instrument better with intuitive, easy to understand graphics. It shows them that their hearing instruments are delivering what they need. Empowering your patients with a clear visual sense of their hearing loss and the aided benefits as they relate to actual speech.

Enhance your fitting with Primus speech mapping

If you use Primus Fitting System and REM, adding on speech mapping could be the extra feature that will save you returns and re-fittings.

Speech mapping will also enable you to better fit the hearing aid to the patient’s personal preferences, thus increasing the quality of life of the hearing-impaired patient.

Offering you three quick wins

Use speech mapping as a fitting tool

You do not need to spend much extra time getting the best fit of the hearing instrument. When using speech mapping during a fitting session, you simply match the hearing aid to a prescriptive target. Increase accuracy by placing speech within the patient’s residual dynamic range and evaluate the audibility of adaptive algorithms.

Use speech mapping as a counselling tool

When you illustrate the dynamics of the hearing loss and the benefits of both the hearing aid and the adjustments to patients and relatives, they will find it easier to engage in your counselling and value your demonstrated expertise.

Use speech mapping as a verification tool

You are more likely to avoid re-fitting sessions if you use live sounds such as speech to verify the hearing instrument fit. The extra effort saves both you and your patients precious time.

Primus Fitting System

Our pc-based Primus Fitting System offers great flexibility and scalability. Take full advantage of the all-in-one solution and enjoy the ease of use of real ear measurement and speech mapping modules.

Hearing instrument testing

For testing and troubleshooting hearing instruments, you need a modern Hearing Instrument Test (HIT) unit that performs in line with all the approved standards.

Excellent acoustic chamber

Accurate acoustics is essential when troubleshooting or testing hearing instruments, so you need to choose a HIT unit with proven accuracy and the minimum of distortion. The Primus HIT (link to primus hit page) unit is a fully featured robust unit with a large test chamber.

All of that, and it is still a portable solution if you need to go mobile.

Easy hearing aid testing and troubleshooting with the PC-based Primus Hit Pro unit

Automated test sequences
You can use automatic sequences or control the test steps as you go along, it’s your choice. The Primus HIT unit will support your way of working.

Test standards you can rely on
The Primus HIT unit will hold all of your historical session information, so you can make fittings away from the office if you need to. The system adheres to industry standards IEC and ANSI and is fully Noah compatible.

Flexibility in operations
The Primus HIT unit will work independently or you can hook it up to the Primus Fitting System for optimal results.

No Calibration downtime

Are you tired of the problems with calibration? Our solution will make you happy.

Calibration is a constant irritation, either you sit idle, while they calibrate your system, or you buy a back-up audiometer. What if there was an easier way, a way where you didn’t worry about downtime? Well, there is, our patented calibration in the plug system means that you will never have to worry about calibration downtime again and you can invest your money on something else than a backup audiometer.

Calibration stored in the transducer plug

Our innovative system stores the calibration information in the headset plug. Which means all you have to do to get your system calibrated is to plug in a new set of earphones or probes, no hassle, no downtime. You also free yourself from having to build in redundancy or schedule timely calibration visits.

Really, no downtime at all!

The magic lies in the simplicity. You receive new transducers well in advance of the due date of the old ones. You plug in the new transducers, and you are ready for your next client without any disruption. You then send back the old transducers for calibration and experience no downtime at all.

Are you looking for a portable audiometer solution? We can help you with that.

If you need to undertake home visits, you want your equipment to be easy to set up, carry, and pack. Not just that, you want it without creating extra work synchronising data when you are back in the office.

Choosing an audiometer and fitting system that will easily fit in your bag gives you the ultimate versatility, just in case you ever need to bring it with you.

Get ahead with portable audiometers

You are not limited to one single location with any of Auditdata’s audiometers. Even our largest Primus Pro audiometer and fitting unit weighs less than 500 g not counting the lid. While you can mount the Primus Pro on a wall or table, it is designed to easily slide off, if you need to take it with you.
