Navigator® Pro MASTER II
Multiple Auditory STeady-state Evoked Response
The Physiologic Audiometer -- Fast. Accurate. Objective.
Bio-logic MASTER II is a must have addition to the clinical electrophysiological test battery for rapid multiple frequency threshold assessment in:
- Infants & young children
- Children or adults with special needs
- Workers’ compensation cases
The MASTER II program offers:
- Patented technology that obtains frequency-specific auditory
- Simultaneous testing up to 4 frequencies per ear 2
- View real-time EEG and the response spectrum
- Easy tracking of results — table on the collection screen records the f-ratio for each frequency collected at each intensity level
- Printing of physiological audiogram with air conduction, bone conduction & soundfield data on the same audiogram
- User-defined stopping rules to halt collection when response criteria is not met
- Choice of montage using Cz to Nape or Cz to Mastoids
- Masking is available for bone conduction or unilateral hearing loss3
Validation of MASTER II technology by peer-reviewed research publications
MASTER II was developed in cooperation with Sasha John, Ph.D., Terence Picton, M.D., Ph.D. and additional researchers at the Rotman Research Institute of Baycrest Centre, Toronto, Ontario. The research validating the MASTER II technology, from facilities worldwide, is available at http://www.mastersystem.ca/.
This stimulus option enhances the response amplitude at low (500 Hz) and high (4000 Hz) frequencies so that responses can be obtained closer to threshold.5
The most accurate Auditory Steady State Response (ASSR) method of response detection to assist in predicting behavioral audiometric thresholds even for normal hearing and mild hearing loss.5
Improves data collection accuracy and reduces test time.6
User Defined Averaging Time
M•A•S•T•E•R II allows you to use your clinical judgment to determine the
averaging time, shorter for severe to profound losses and longer for mild and moderate losses.5
Calculation of Noise Floor & Response Amplitude
Monitoring the noise floor and amplitude per ear and per frequency assists you in determining if continued averaging is needed in order to obtain a response, therefore reducing test time and increasing the ability to obtain true thresholds.
Create your own protocols & sequences.
