OtoRead OAE device

Made to simplify your workday

OtoRead™ combines fast and comprehensive DPOAE and TEOAE testing of newborn babies, children and adults in an easy to use, handheld device.

Easy to focus on your patient

Imagine if you could focus entirely on your patients. With OtoRead™ it is possible. Testing only takes a few seconds and is supported by easy result interpretation and data management.

Hearing loss in school children

Identification and management of hearing loss in school age children is vital to language development and a child’s success in the classroom. OtoRead™ functions effectively in classrooms and home environments. The easy-to-understand displays clearly conveys screening progress and results, and indicates what to do next.

Diagnostic testing across a wide range of frequencies

OtoRead™ is also suitable for an ENT or clinical audiology setting, testing across a wide range of frequencies. OtoRead™ offers the flexibility to conduct full diagnostic DPOAE assessments of up to 12 frequencies – offering a greater amount of information to the integrity of your patients’ cochlear function. It can be used to evaluate ototoxicity, occupational hearing loss onset and functional hearing loss cases.

The caring choice for newborn hearing screening

OtoRead™ is ideal for newborn hearing screening, offering predefined pass refer criteria and an intuitive user interface with color display screens to make result interpretation easier.

A caring design made to support your workflow

Speed and accuracy are essential in OAE testing, especially in newborn screening. The OtoRead™ workflow is optimized to ease your day.

Designed with ergonomic care

OtoRead™ is ergonomically designed for an optimal grip. It is small, portable and shaped to be operated in one hand, by anyone. Alternatively, enjoy the freedom of hands-free operation. The OtoRead™ hook allows you to stabilize the device while you prepare your patient.

Easy to navigate and read test results

You will instantly discover how simple OtoRead™ is to use when you start your test. It has a four arrow keypad making it intuitive and fast to navigate and access the desired screens. The colorcoded icons guide you through the process. Once you have placed the probe in the patient’s ear, simply press one button and your device starts testing. After a few seconds, the result will show a green Pass or red Refer indication.

Optimized lightweigt probe for small ears

OtoRead™ introduces a new lightweight probe optimized for small ears. It is easy to place in the ear and get a seal. If necessary, you can easily replace the probe tip. It relieves you of the stress of clearing blocked probes between patients, guaranteeing a smooth workflow without interruptions.

Fast printing of results

OtoRead™ allows you to quickly and easily print test results. As an option, OtoRead™ can be equipped with a small thermal printer. Printing or transferring data to the PC can be done via Bluetooth. The test data is easy to read and will give a Pass or Refer indication for each ear.

Easy transfer of test results

With OtoRead, data can easily be transferred to the OtoRead PC Module. For screening configurations, data can also be stored in OtoAccess® Database via the HearSIM PC Module. The software and database options for OtoRead are all compatible with both Oz and HiTrack, allowing fast and easy export of OtoRead™ results once your test is complete.

Pre-defined or user-defined test protocols

As a compliment to your full audiometric test battery, or to estimate outer hair cell function on patients who cannot provide reliable responses to conventional audiometric testing, OtoRead™ can be used with either pre-defined or userdefined testing protocols.

12 kHz for ototoxic monitoring

The diagnostic version of the OtoRead™ gives you the option to also test up to 12 kHz.

Stores up to 500 test results

With an internal storage of up to 500 tests, you do not need to worry that your OtoRead™ runs out of storage space.
