Elk Grove Village, IL (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
Etymotic Research, a leader in hearing health technology, released its new Home Hearing Test at this month's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV, and it’s now available for sale on etymotic.com. The Home Hearing Test allows families to monitor the hearing health of friends and family at home. Unlike questionnaires and other screening tests, Etymotic’s Home Hearing Test is the same type of test administered by hearing professionals. The Home Hearing Test determines when hearing should be checked by a licensed professional, and provides consumers with the information they need to take control of their hearing wellness.
“Hearing loss is a real public health concern with approximately 17 percent of American adults reporting some hearing loss – and less than 20 percent of those seeking help for their condition,” said Dr. Gail Gudmundsen, managing director of audiology at Etymotic Research. “Monitoring and testing are moving into the home. Today we can take blood pressure, check insulin levels, remotely monitor a pacemaker and perform a host of other health checks for ourselves. The Home Hearing Test is another step in that direction.”
The Home Hearing Test was developed by audiologists and comes with everything consumers need to conduct an accurate test, including calibrated earphones, a matched sound card and an intuitive user interface that delivers detailed results in just 10 minutes. If desired, users can print their reports and share them with medical professionals. Etymotic’s Home Hearing Test is available for purchase online at etymotic.com and other retailers.
