Detect hearing loss, prevent language disabilities, and improve patient outcomes with the Welch Allyn OAE Hearing Screener, the child-friendly hearing screener that's objective, accurate, and easy to use. By requiring minimal patient cooperation, the OAE Hearing Screener lets you precisely and objectively screen for hearing loss in newborns, infants, toddlers, preschool, and school-age children in just seconds.

Detect hearing loss before significant speech impairments occur.
Significant hearing loss can develop after the newborn period, so birth screening is not enogh. Regular hearing screening is important throughout childhood. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all infants and children, in addition to universal newborn hearing screening, should periodically receive objective screenings for hearing impairment through age 10. Designed to be safe and comfortable for use on children of all ages, the OAE Hearing Screener makes hearing screening simple, safe and accurate.
