Hearing Screening School Program Expanding in Canada

Technology For Doctors logoClearwater Clinical Limited, makers of SHOEBOX Audiometry, a clinically validated iPad audiometer, along with the University of Ottawa Medical School, is expanding the highly successful iHEAR program to bring much needed hearing testing to elementary school students. In its first phase, the program ran locally across the Ottawa region. The organizations announced that iHEAR is expanding to include Montreal, Halifax, and Saskatoon. Despite recommendations that school-aged children have their hearing evaluated annually, this testing rarely occurs due in part to a shortage of audiology resources.
