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 clinics.
