Reliability and Accuracy of Bekesy Audiometry and the Sensorineural Acuity Level(SAL) Test. (Thesis)
Békésy audiometry is a reliable and accurate hearing assessment instrument for normal-hearing and hearing-impaired adults. The SAL technique is reliable but further investigation is required to determine its accuracy.
Automated frequency sweep testing is an old method of determining hearing thresholds. This study validates this method of testing. The SAL method of Bone Conduction testing was also validated, but this test procedure has not yet been implemented in the KUDUwave™
