Tympanometry is a medical test used to assess the health of the middle ear and to detect ear disorders such as fluid in the ear or a perforated eardrum. This test is often used in conjunction with other tests such as audiometry to determine the cause of hearing loss and to determine the best course of treatment.

 At our hearing aid clinic, we use tympanometry to evaluate the function of the eardrum and the middle ear. The test is quick, painless, and non-invasive, making it an ideal option for individuals of all ages, including children.

 During the test, a small probe is inserted into the ear canal, and a small amount of air pressure is applied. The probe measures the movement of the eardrum in response to the pressure change, providing information about the health of the middle ear. This information can then be used to diagnose and treat conditions such as fluid in the ear, ear infections, and perforated eardrums.

 Tympanometry is also a valuable tool in fitting and adjusting hearing aids. It can be used to determine if a hearing aid is the appropriate solution for a patient, and to ensure that the hearing aid is properly fitted and adjusted. By measuring the eardrum’s response to sound, our audiologists can ensure that the hearing aid is providing the maximum benefit to the patient.

 In addition to tympanometry, our clinic offers a wide range of services to help individuals with hearing loss. We provide comprehensive hearing evaluations, including audiometry, to determine the cause and extent of hearing loss. We also offer a variety of hearing aids and other assistive devices to help individuals hear better, including the latest digital hearing aids, which can be programmed to meet the specific needs of each patient.

 At our clinic, we understand the importance of good hearing health and the impact it can have on an individual’s quality of life. That’s why we are dedicated to providing the highest quality care and the most advanced technology to help our patients hear better. If you or a loved one is experiencing hearing loss, we invite you to schedule a consultation with one of our audiologists today. Together, we can work to find the best solution for your hearing needs.
