Software Installation

  • When installing your software, Windows will now recognise and supported the software as it is digitally signed as an eMoyo software
  • The latest user manual will be downloaded with the software update in a soft copy PDF format  
  • Installing the latest software will automatically migrate data from your old software

Assistive Interpretations

  • This update introduces objective interpretations based on various standards for PLH, STS, pure tone test and ototoxicity monitoring.
  • The user interface of the assistive interpretations has been improved, with test comparison tables created for baseline and follow-up tests to allow for easy reading

Manually enter test results

  • Have audiogram results from a different audiometer? Enter the test results from the third party onto the KUDUwave 5.
  • Add a test date on the results and make notes.

Dashboards/Smart Folder

  • This update added and improved on smart folders. When seeing a specific patient group (i.e. Ototoxicity monitoring), you will get tests specific to that patient group. Such as baseline, screening and exit tests
  • Now there are smart folders for school screening and occupational audiology

Pure Tone Audiometry

  • Test individuals with OSHA protocols for occupational/ industrial audiology
  • The minimum threshold that the " Auto Air and Bone [Octaves 250Hz to 8kHz - SANS 10182]" can test to was decreased from 0 dBHL to -20 dBHL
  • Occlusion effect offsets were updated and set for insert earphones as per Dean & Martin  (2000)

Support
