A Comparison of a Currently Marketed Hearing Aid Programmed With Two Different Fitting Methods

Benefits of amplification and accessories used with it outweigh anticipated risks in mild to profound hearing impaired subjects. The basic benefit of amplification should be present with any method that the trained professional fitting the instruments uses. The goal of this study is to compare two fitting methods and determine ...

Phase N/A

Blast Exposed Veterans With Auditory Complaints

The purpose of this study is to study blast-exposed Veterans who report hearing handicap but show normal or near normal results on standard audiometric testing. The characteristics and nature of their auditory and auditory-related skills will be examined with a battery of behavioral and physiologic measures. The potential contributions of ...

Reducing Childhood Hearing Loss in an Alaska Native Population Through a New School Screening and Referral Process That Utilizes Mobile Health and Telemedicine

Hearing loss is a common health problem in Alaska. Up to 75% of children growing up in Alaskan villages experience frequent ear infections, one of the major treatable causes of hearing loss. Children with even mild hearing loss face many challenges. These children often experience speech and language delays and ...

Phase N/A

Aural Rehabilitation for Cochlear Implant Users Via Telerehab Technology

Aural rehabilitation training (AR) has been demonstrated to improve outcomes for adult cochlear implant users. There are both financial and non-financial barriers to AR service delivery including accessibility (mobility, distance and transportation problems), accommodation (time off work impossible, caring for family) and availability (limited providers in rural areas, financial constraints, ...

Phase N/A

Cochlear Implantation in Adults With Asymmetric Hearing Loss Clinical Trial

The study will be conducted as a multicenter, prospective, single-arm clinical trial, evaluating the efficacy and safety of cochlear implantation in patients with asymmetric hearing loss. A repeated-measures analysis will be employed whereby patients will act as their own controls. Participants will be recruited from surgeons and audiologists in Otolaryngology ...

Phase N/A

CHANGE Feasibility Study

The purpose of the feasibility study is to examine audiological outcomes (audiometry and speech perception) and safety (adverse events and adverse device effects) with the Nucleus CI532 cochlear implant in group of adult subjects (n=12) who meet current criteria for cochlear implantation.

Phase N/A

Feasibility of an Online Rehabilitation Program

STUDY PURPOSE This feasibility study is a precursor of a randomised controlled trial (RCT) that will evaluate the effectiveness of an English-speaking version of the online program originally evaluated by Thorn et al in adult hearing aid users. This study will estimate a number of parameters necessary for the robust ...

Phase N/A

Characterization of Auditory Processing Involved in the Encoding of Speech Sounds

The ability to encode the speech signal is determined by ascending and descending auditory processing. Difficulties in processing these speech signals are well described at the behavioral level in a specific language disorder. However, little is known about the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms. The assumption is that we should observe a ...

Phase N/A

Optimisation of Hybrid Fittings for Cochlear Implant Recipients

When providing amplification post-implantation to residual acoustic hearing in the implanted ear, the lower frequency boundary can be modified to minimize or avoid overlap between the frequencies coded through acoustic hearing and those presented through electrical stimulation. This boundary is termed the cross-over frequency (Fc) and the effect of modifying ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Hearing Rehabilitative Interventions and Huperzine A on Presbycusis( kHz dB MMSE AD)

To continuously recruit about 150 patients with presbycusis and tinnitus and about 400 patients with presbycusis in our hospital of Fudan university.
