Real ear unaided response (REUR) is a valuable tool for audiologists and hearing aid users. It can help to identify problems with hearing aid fitting and to ensure that hearing aids are providing the best possible hearing benefit.
What is Real Ear Unaided Response (REUR)?
Real ear unaided response (REUR) is a measure of the sound pressure level (SPL) of a sound in the ear canal without a hearing aid in it. It is calculated by measuring the SPL of a sound in the ear canal and subtracting the SPL of the same sound in a free field.
What is the Purpose of Real Ear Measurement?
Real ear measurement is a type of hearing test that measures the performance of hearing aids in the ear canal. It is a more accurate way to measure hearing aid performance than traditional methods, such as audiometric testing.
What is Real Ear Verification Testing?
Real ear verification testing is a process of using real ear measurements to ensure that hearing aids are providing the correct amount of amplification in the ear canal. This is done by comparing the real ear measurements to a set of predetermined targets.
What is the Difference Between REUR and REIG?
REUR and REIG are both measures of the sound pressure level in the ear canal, but they measure different things. REUR measures the sound pressure level without a hearing aid in the ear canal, while REIG measures the sound pressure level with a hearing aid in the ear canal.
