AMTAS FLEX

SCREENING AUTOMATED AUDIOMETRY

Grason-Stadler is excited to introduce GSI AMTAS™, or Automated Method for Testing Auditory Sensitivity. This is a patient-directed evaluation tool that uses patented test methods and accuracy algorithms to perform diagnostic or screening audiometry. With over 10 years of research and development, the validity of AMTAS has been proven through comprehensive studies. AMTAS was created as a resource for clinicians to help manage their busy schedules and promote an efficient office environment. Most importantly, AMTAS frees the clinician, allowing them to spend more time focused on patient care.

AMTAS Flex is a stand-alone test that uses a tablet with no audiometer required. Flex offers screening and threshold air conduction audiometry. The screening test typically takes 1 - 2 minutes to complete. Threshold testing obtains pure tone thresholds in about 5 - 10 minutes. The threshold test provides up to six quality indicators and two reporting options.

AMTAS Patient Using Audiometry Software

PORTABILITY PROVIDES OPTIONS

AMTAS Flex was designed to be used for on the go screening audiometry testing. All that is needed to run AMTAS Flex is the software, an approved tablet computer, and calibrated circumaural headphones. This makes AMTAS Flex the perfect option for screening patients before they even start their appointment to give the clinician a basic overview of the patient's hearing healthcare profile.

QUALITY INDICATORS

The quality indicators provide information about the patient's behavior during testing. Using the quality indicators gives the clinician insight on how to proceed with counseling and further testing.

  • 1. PREDICTED ACCURACY

    How accurate is the test? Good, fair, poor. If poor, a re-assessment may be necessary.

  • 2. PREDICTED AVERAGE ABSOLUTE DIFFERENCE

    Difference between automated and manual thresholds.

  • 3. TIME PER TRIAL

    The average time it took the patient to respond to the stimulus.

  • amtas-flex-report_v2
  • 4. FALSE ALARM RATE

    The number of times the patient responded "yes" when no stimulus was presented, divided by the total number of times no stimulus was presented.

  • 5. AVERAGE TEST-RETEST DIFFERENCE

    Average difference between 1 KHz test and retest in right and left ear.

  • 6. QUALITY CHECK FAIL RATE

    Number of times patient did not respond to stimulus above threshold, divided by number of measured thresholds.

TWO VERSIONS AVAILABLE

AMTAS Pro, a diagnostic version of the GSI AMTAS software, is also available in addition to AMTAS Flex.
