Imagine your two-channel clinical audiometer built into an Android Tablet, providing you with the ability to lift the tablet from the platform and, using Bluetooth technology, perform audiometric testing from a more convenient location. Imagine administering recorded speech testing without the need for an external CD/MP3 player. Imagine not having to be tied down in front of your audiometer or computer to perform audiometric testing. If this sounds like something that is up your alley, take a look at the new FONIX COLT Audiometer from Frye Electronics available through Oaktree Products.
The FONIX COLT Audiometer is a two-channel audiometer capable of performing pure tone air conduction and bone conduction audiometry, soundfield testing, and speech audiometry via live voice or utilizing pre-loaded, recorded speech test materials (spondee, NU-6, Maryland CNC wordlists). Additional recorded tests built into the system include the QuickSIN for assessing hearing in noise abilities and the Acceptable Noise Level (ANL) test to measure the amount of background noise an individual will tolerate to help predict who will be successful with hearing instruments. Several models of the FONIX COLT audiometer are available based on the preferred air conduction transducer: 1) TDH-39 headphone (item# COLT-STD), 2) ER3A insert earphones (item# COLT-INSERT), and 3) TDF-39 headphones and ER3A insert earphone (item# COLT-DUAL).
The FONIX-COLT combines easy-to-use controls and layout of a traditional clinical audiometer with the advanced flexibility of a computer-based audiometer. Test settings and presentations levels may be manually selected with traditional dials and switches, or via touch screen controls using the fingertips or stylus pen (included). It comes packaged with a USB connector for connection to an external PC running the FONIX NOAH Audiometer Module to allow collection of test results from the COLT’s tablet, to print test results, store data, and, if desired, to display information on a larger external video monitor for patient viewing. All of this is packaged in a unit that weighs less than four pounds and approximately the size of a standard sheet of paper (11.3″ x 11.5″ x 4.2″ or 28.7cm x 29.2cm x 10.7cm).
