Speech and Hearing Center

Hearing test room

The audible examination room measures the sensitivity of hearing to the patient visiting with an ear disease such as hearing loss, tinnitus, and dizziness as well as identifies the degree of hearing loss and location of lesions, and provides accurate diagnosis and prevention and rehabilitation. Testing is conducted on both children and adults, both objective and subjective test. 

Also, in order to prescribe hearing aids to patients with hearing loss, we perform basic hearing tests such as the Pure tone, speech auditory tests, and, if necessary, objective test methods such as the auditory brainstem response test. Based on the above test results, hearing aids are prescribed to be best-suited to the patient, and the hearing aids are controlled and managed in this examination room in optimal condition.

If hearing aids do not provide hearing rehabilitation, it is treated through cochlear implantation, which is also responsible for postoperative cochlear implantation control and care.

Vestibular function test room
Vestibular function tests are often done when a patient has a dizziness (vertigo) or unsteadiness. The VFT help to where your balance problem originates from the balance organs in the ears.

In our laboratory, we conduct various tests, such as VNG, Caloric Test, RCT, HIT, VEMP, SOT, and perform vestibular rehabilitation therapy.

1. VNG- You will be required to wear a pair of lightweight goggles with built in camera to monitor eye movements throughout the body positional, positioning.

2. Caloric test-The function of the balance organs in the ears is measured by recording your eye movement after a small amount of cool and warm water has been run into each ear canal in turn.

3. Rotation chair test-Your eyes and vestibular system intact to allow you to see things clearly when you move. VOR is the basis for rotatory chair testing, and it is measured using goggles equipped with infrared cameras.

4. Posturography (SOT) -SOT is designed to examine how well the patient uses information from the vestibular visual and proprioceptive systems to control balance.

5. HIT-HIT is used to help identify an impaired VOR in patients with vertigo.

6. VEMP- Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potential is used to examine the function of the otolith organs which are evoked by acoustic stimulus.

7. VRT-Vestibular rehabilitation can improve the functional balance, stabilize the ocular reaction and decrease the disequilibrium.
