The overall aim of the study is to compare the verification accuracy and hearing-aid outcomes between the traditional, fitting approach where the patient is present during the visit and a ...
Integration of the REM-verification within the fitting workflow will enable the hearing care professional to easily run real ear measurements. The purpose of the two study parts is to prov...
Currently, the fitting of hearing aids is using a computer interface that allows to adjust the gain and compression of acoustic amplification. This adjustment is made face to face, patient...
Hearing loss is among the top service-connected disabilities in Veterans. Hearing aids are the primary intervention for hearing loss. Half of the hearing aids dispensed in the VA are to Ve...
Using resting state positron emission tomography (PET), our goal was to analyze the metabolic and functional neural changes that occur after 6 months of effective hearing aid (HA) use. Bes...
Self-fitting hearing aids have the potential to increase the accessibility of hearing health care. The aims of this study were to (1) identify factors that are associated with the ability to successfu...
The recent integration of automated real-ear measurements (REM) in the fitting software facilitates the hearing aid fitting process. Such a fitting strategy, TargetMatch (TM), was evaluated. Test-rete...
The objective was to determine self-adjusted output response and speech intelligibility index (SII) in individuals with mild to moderate hearing loss and to measure the effects of prior hearing aid ex...
To observe and compare the clinical efficacy of 1-year trial fitting and software fitting orthokeratology lenses.
Footwear performance and injury mitigation may be compromised if the footwear is not properly sized for an athlete. Additionally, poor fit may result in discomfort and foot injury such as fifth metata...
The fitting and adjusting of artificial parts of the body. (From Stedman's, 26th ed)
Hearing loss due to disease of the AUDITORY PATHWAYS (in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM) which originate in the COCHLEAR NUCLEI of the PONS and then ascend bilaterally to the MIDBRAIN, the THALAMUS, and then the AUDITORY CORTEX in the TEMPORAL LOBE. Bilateral lesions of the auditory pathways are usually required to cause central hearing loss. Cortical deafness refers to loss of hearing due to bilateral auditory cortex lesions. Unilateral BRAIN STEM lesions involving the cochlear nuclei may result in unilateral hearing loss.
Pathological processes involving the VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE; BRAINSTEM; or CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. When hearing loss is due to retrocochlear pathology, it is called retrocochlear hearing loss.
Hearing loss due to exposure to explosive loud noise or chronic exposure to sound level greater than 85 dB. The hearing loss is often in the frequency range 4000-6000 hertz.
The portion of the upper rounded extremity fitting into the glenoid cavity of the SCAPULA. (from Stedman, 27th ed)
