The MAICO MB 11 BERAphone® offers a fast automatic AABR screening test up to the brainstem for newborns and young children.
The measurement is very easy using the patented BERAphone® technology. The BERAphone® is simply placed onto the babies head, after just some application of electrode gel. Within a few seconds you will get the information if the baby is hearing well. If a response at 35 dBHL is detected and verified, the test result is PASS.
When performing AABR measurements - in contrary to OAE measurements - you also get information about possible hearing defects located behind the inner ear, such as auditory neuropathy (AN).
The new patented CE-Chirp™
Stimulates all regions of the cochlea at the same time and thus generates much higher responses and consequently faster results than a standard click. This leads to very reliable results under normal noisy conditions.
Automatic impedance check
Preferably, EEG measurements require as good a conduction as possible between the patient’s skin and the electrode. The integrated automatic impedance check displays impedance testing conditions.
Integrated tracking and data transfer
The software allows the user to export patient and test data for documentation and tracking.
The patented BERAphone® includes the speaker, the electronic and the measuring electrodes in one unit. The
power supply and the data transfer are made through USB connection.
Follow Up (Option)
For a “Follow Up” after a REFER result, a “standard” ABR measurement is available for visual verification by an expert. For a fast threshold measurement the integrated. Time Step Stimulus test allows to test six different click
intensities in one measurement. By using this test the threshold becomes apparent at one glance.
No disposable costs – highly cost effective measurement
As the stainless steel electrodes are integrated in the BERAphone® no application of disposable electrodes is necessary. Thus no disposable costs arise and the measurement is highly cost effective.
