Calibration: Vital for Your Hearing Care Equipment

This blog is about the importance of calibration of your equipment and how you can make calibration downtime a thing of the past.

Audiometers, like other medical equipment, must be maintained regularly. Part of that maintenance is calibration of your hearing care equipment, which is the process of configuring audiometers to verify that they are performing accurately. It’s essential to have your audiology equipment calibrated on a regular basis (at least annually) to make sure your audiometers comply with strict industry standards, as well as the manufacturer’s specific guidelines. In some countries, it is even demanded by law. 

Proper hearing equipment calibration helps ensure the accuracy of test results, allowing you to provide exceptional customer care, and reduce risks. In contrast, poorly maintained equipment may lead to inaccurate measurements and incorrect results, which could have significant legal and financial ramifications for your shops.

Make calibration downtime a thing of the past 

Calibration is typically performed by a certified technician. This means downtime for your equipment and often long waiting times for the technician to arrive. 

Auditdata does things differently. We understand the importance of proper equipment calibration and stable operations and, therefore, we support our hearing care professionals with our Auditdata SWAP service. This means that we ship calibrated transducers to your hearing care centers well in advance of the due date of the old ones. You plug in the new transducers, and you’re ready for your next client without any interruption. Then, you box your old equipment and return the expired transducers through the mail with no downtime at all. It’s truly that simple.

Our innovative system stores the calibration information in the transducer plug, which means all you need to do to get your system calibrated is plug in a new set of transducers or probes, with no hassle or downtime. And your 12-month activation date begins the day you activate the transducer in your Primus software. 

The beauty of our system is that with Auditdata Asset Management cloud service, you can track all your transducers and their calibration status. Additionally, you can easily view and check transducer type, serial number, their location and IP location, latest calibration data and number of days until calibration. Keeping track of your transducers in the Auditdata cloud means that you can easily plan your calibration SWAP and be well-prepared for audits. The calibration certificate is stored in the cloud, which means no binders or paperwork are necessary to keep track of your calibration certificates.
