Technical Name Ear Scale App Hearing Screening System: Early Detection of Hidden Hearing Loss for Early Treatment
Project Operator Taipei Veterans General Hospital
Project Host 廖文輝
Hidden hearing loss often goes undetected until significant hearing impairment occurs, leading to irreversible consequences. To address this, our team has developed an innovative intelligent hearing screening system that offers accurate, convenient,widespread early detection tools to facilitate early treatment. This system enables individuals with hidden hearing loss to perform self-assessments, track their condition,undergo rehabilitation from the comfort of their homes.
Scientific Breakthrough
The Ear Scale app utilizes the built-in Hearing Scale Test (HST) as its default hearing screening program. When compared to the screening schemes recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)the American AuditorySpeech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), the Ear Scale app demonstrates an exceptional performance in terms of accuracy. Across the three screening schemesthe tested frequencies (500 Hz, 1000 Hz, 2000 Hz,4000 Hz), the false alarm rate for Ear Scale is 0.
Industrial Applicability
Our team aims to achieve the core objective of "Bringing Hearing Screening Tests out of Soundproof Rooms"assist Taiwan in gaining a leading position in the future development of OTC hearing aids. By providing more accurate hearing threshold information, the team addresses an important research direction in the industry.
