The Benefits of AccuFit® Hearing Aid Fitting in Raleigh
AccuFit® is a proprietary system based on a unique FDA-cleared medical device called ACAM®-5. It gives us the ability to analyze with over 200% finer resolution to understand your personal sound preferences and ear canal acoustics. What this means to you is that we can program (“fit”) hearing aids in a particular way that lets you hear the sounds you must hear for safety and engagement with others, in the most clear, comfortable way possible.
Our patients will tell you that our AccuFit® system has enabled them to enjoy these three outstanding benefits!
If your hearing aids are less than five years old, we can usually fine-tune them to let you hear and understand much better. A visit to our hearing clinic could mean you won’t need to invest in new hearing aids.
Because Now Hear This® also makes our new hearing aids work better, we fine-tune them right from the start. This means you don’t have to come back again and again for adjustments. Instead, you can live life to the fullest enjoying the many health and safety benefits of hearing aids fitted just right. This is possible only with our ground-breaking and unique AccuFit® system.
AccuFit® eliminates guesswork to ensure your hearing aids are truly helping you hear better. At the same time, our audiologist will minimize or eliminate the sounds and noises that are uncomfortable or “too loud”.
How Does AccuFit® Work?
In case you didn’t want to watch the video, lets just say that the answer lies in the following specialized procedures that our Raleigh, NC hearing clinic uses to ensure the hearing aids are working right the first time:
Loudness Mapping and Acceptable Noise Level (ANL)
Loudness Mapping ensures a patient’s hearing aids match their natural sound preferences. Consequently, not using these standard protocols will leave a patient unsatisfied with their hearing
TruTarget® gives us an exact way to know how to set the hearing aids for your specific needs.
These tests help us fine tune hearing aids so you can understand what people are saying in noisy social situations, like busy restaurants and parties.
Real Ear Measurements
Real Ear Measurements help Now Hear This® confirm that the hearing aid matches the unique acoustic “fingerprint” of your ear, which greatly increases the accuracy of the initial fitting and results in fewer adjustment follow-up visits. An REM procedure allows audiologists to use a tiny microphone to measure the hearing aid volume at your eardrum to adjust the hearing aids to make them more clear and comfortable. It takes extra time, but is worth it. REMs assure you that the hearing aids are delivering maximum benefits.
