Lyra is the obvious choice when performing clinical otoacoustic emission (OAE) measurements. Its fast and reliable OAE testing will reduce your test times and give you more time for your patients.
Why clinical OAE testing?
Otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) are sounds that are generated by movement of the outer hair cells in a healthy functioning cochlea in response to external stimuli. OAE measurements are not only useful as part of the test battery for straight forward patients, but also provide invaluable diagnostic information in the assessment and diagnosis of:
Patients where behavioral testing is difficult (e.g. young children, dementia patients).
Noise-induced hearing loss.
Auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD).
Other cochlear vs retrocochlear disorders (site of lesion determination).
Ototoxic medication effects.
Portable yet powerful
Lyra is a PC-based device. It is easy to connect Lyra via USB to your PC and operate it in the IA OAE Suite software.
Lyra is powered by the USB connection, eliminating the need for an external power supply. This together with the small footprint will simplify your workday as you can bring Lyra from one location to another.
„Lyra optimizes the way we measure OAEs, in line with Interacoustics’ dedication to deliver OAE instruments that are second to none.“
Peter Bray, Ph.D., Interacoustics OAE Specialist
Combine otoacoustic emissions your way
Whether you prefer distortion product OAE, transient evoked OAE or a combination, Lyra offers a software suite that meets all your requirements for fast and flexible otoacoustic emission measurements. The IA OAE Suite is easy to navigate and ensures a natural and simple workflow. The software also allows for detailed interpretation and analysis of test data, and you can switch between DPOAE and TEOAE without exiting the software.
Perfect for children and adults
You do not have to worry about different ear sizes or changing the probe for different age groups when testing with Lyra. The lightweight probe and variety of ear tips, including foam ear tips, fit into any ear canal size, making Lyra suitable for testing on both children and adults. Get reliable measurements with the automatic in-ear-detection function and the probe check graph.
Customize your protocols
The IA OAE Suite includes a range of test protocols that suit most patient groups and test purposes. You can create or adjust protocols to suit your specific clinical needs, and tools such as the historic overlay make thorough clinical otoacoustic emission assessments possible.
Store your patient data easily
The IA OAE Suite runs within Noah or OtoAccess® Database from Interacoustics. This makes it possible to combine your OAE measurements with other test results of a given patient stored in the database. Lyra and the IA OAE Suite are also compatible with Noah.
OAE made clinical
Otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) are not just an essential tool in newborn hearing screening, but also in clinical audiology. Clinical OAE gives you the option to perform a comprehensive assessment of the inner ear and the cochlea.
