Q. What equipment do I need to use AMTAS Flex?
A. AMTAS Flex requires the use of a tablet computer equipped with the Windows operating system and calibrated headphones.
Q. If AMTAS Flex is not performed in a sound booth, how can I ensure the background noise does not interfere with the results?
A. AMTAS Flex includes a room noise monitor system that evaluates the environment during a test to determine whether the results have been affected by background noise and distractions. It is important to find a quiet space to conduct the test. AMTAS Flex should be performed in an environment like an exam room or office space that is away from high traffic areas. To help reduce ambient noise and allow the patient to focus on the test, AMTAS Flex utilizes circumaural headphones.
