We help in conducting test to find out function of cochlea and performance by auditory nerve.

The OAE test is very simple yet effective test which measures echo response with help of microphone from inner ear. It can be conducted on babies as it is comfortable test and starts with playing sounds in baby’s ear with help of a small earphone. Depending on the function of cochlea, the echo is generated or not generated in response to the sound played in ear. If cochlea is impaired, echo is generated against the sound.
