Hearing Loss and Prostheses Simulator
HELPS is a powerful new software tool designed for audiologists to help their clients and clients' families make informed hearing-health choices. An esy-to-use interface enables interactive demonstrations of the communication difficulties caused by individual hearing losses and the improvements possible with aids or cochlear implants. High-quality audio-visual speech presentations clearly demonstrate the importance of lip reading, while control of hearing aid characteristics, background noise, and reverberation produce realistic simulations. Only the calibrated headphones (supplied) and a windows-based computer are required.
