The RemotEAR Concept

 

RemotEAR's Deviceware technology enables you to perform remote diagnostic testing using the equipment you probably already have.  It's as simple as that -- and also that powerful.  With just an Internet connection, you can quickly connect to a remote office and administer a range of audiological tests with a patient, and then communicate with them to explain the results.  Deviceware works best when an Assistant is present to ensure that the patient is comfortable and appropriately positioned for testing, and also to help place the transducers and operate the probes for some of the measurements during the diagnostic testing process.

 

The Deviceware system is a simple, affordable and flexible way to assess patients at a distance, and perform needed screening or diagnostic services without having to travel to a remote office location.  It's a valuable additional tool for today's busy hearing care professional, and is affordably priced.
