Audiometry consists of tests of function of the hearing mechanism. This includes tests of mechanical sound transmission (middle ear function), neural sound transmission (cochlear function), and speech discrimination ability (central integration).
Cochlear Implant Support
A cochlear implant is a small, complex electronic device that can help to provide a sense of sound to a person who is profoundly deaf or severely hard-of-hearing. The implant consists of an external portion that sits behind the ear and a second portion that is surgically placed under the skin.
Hearing Aid Programming and Fitting
Accurate and appropriate hearing aid programming is what makes a hearing aid fitting successful. We are capable of providing superior hearing aid programming services through the use of cutting-edge technology not available at most hearing aid facilities. Not only do we routinely program hearing aids so people love them, we also re-program hearing aids for patients who’ve purchased hearing aids elsewhere but have not previously been happy with them.
Hearing Aid Trial
New born screening
Healthway carries out Newborn screening which is the practice of testing every newborn for certain harmful or potentially fatal disorders that aren’t otherwise apparent at birth.
Otoacoustic Emission ( OAE )
AT Healthway we carry out otoacoustic emission (OAE) tests to determine cochlear status, specifically hair cell function. This information can be used to (1) screen hearing (particularly in neonates, infants, or individuals with developmental disabilities), (2) partially estimate hearing sensitivity within a limited range, (3) differentiate between the sensory and neural components of sensorineural hearing loss, and (4) test for functional (feigned) hearing loss..
Speech & Language Evaluation
A speech and language evaluation is the measurement of a person’s communication skills. It is done to find out if a person has communication problems. The evaluation is done by a speech-language clinician. The speech-language clinician gathers information by asking questions about your child and testing the child..
We have a team of speech pathologists who study, diagnose and treat communication disorders, including difficulties with speaking, listening, understanding language, reading, writing, social skills, stuttering and using voice. People with difficulty swallowing can also be helped by them.
Tinnitus evaluation and rehabilitation
Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the head or the ears. Healthway carries out certain evidence based tests to evaluate and rehabiliate patients.
Tympanometry is an objective test used to test the condition of the middle ear and mobility of the eardrum and the conduction bones by creating variations of air pressure in the ear canal.
