Welcome to Aston University's Adult Audiology Clinic. This is a newly developed teaching clinic which aims to follow in the footsteps of the University’s well-established optometry clinic
As a new pioneering project, the clinic has been designed for adult hearing assessments and is aimed at any local adult patients who require this service or an 'over 55 years screen'. Appointments can be made via patient self-referral.
All of our services use up-to-the-minute equipment in our custom-built
sound proofed booths. Audiology
the BSc (Hons) Audiology
and Foundation Degree Hearing Aid Audiology
programmes are taught in the clinic under close supervision by
registered, experienced practitioners. Appointments may take longer
than typically experienced in audiology clinics or dispensers as we are
keen to emphasise critical accuracy and ensure high standards of patient care
in our training.
Our services include
Otoscopy – visual examination of the outer ear, ear canal and ear-drum
Pure-tone audiometry – a hearing test which measures the minimum hearing thresholds for speech and environmental sounds
Tests of middle ear function – tests which measure the movement of the ear-drum and middle ear system in response to sound.
