Paediatric Audiometer

Hearing problems in infants and small children greatly affect their development and speech. Designed by DNgroup, Otoread, a new test instrument from Interacoustics makes diagnosis and treatment so much easier – and the test is now standard in some western countries.

Care of the child and attention to the ergonomics of the user were the central themes in this design.
