Evaluation of the Kuduwave™ 5000 audiometer for compliance with standards for hearing conservation purposes. (Research Report)

The technical specifications of the Kuduwave™ 5000 audiometer were found to comply with the relevant standards for hearing conservation programme purposes. The audiometrist must ensure compliance with the calibration requirements annually, or three-monthly if used as a mobile device, and that the ambient noise levels in the test room comply with the standards set for the test environment for the Kuduwave™ 5000 headset.

This study does not validate the whether the KUDUwave™ tests accurately, but rather validate whether the KUDUwave™ can be used in South Africa to comply to the occupational health standards.
