ABR System with Patented CE-Chirp® for Fast Results

Our MB 11 BERAphone® is equipped with a unique CE-Chirp® which stimulates all regions of the cochlea at the same time to generate much higher responses and faster results than a standard click. This leads to highly accurate results for Auditory Brainstem Response Tests under normal nursing conditions.

Easy for You, Comfortable for the Baby

The MB 11 BERAphone® makes ABR hearing tests for newborns easier for both sides:

  • When the newborn is asleep or calm, apply the electrode gel at the three electrode sites on the baby’s head.
  • Place a drop of electrode gel on the integrated electrodes.
  • Position the MB 11 BERAphone®, surrounding the baby's ear with the earphone and resting the electrodes on the prepared sites.
  • No adhesive disposables are needed. You will save costs and the babies will not experience any pulling or pain while being tested.

Baby-friendly and cost-efficient, that is the key for effective ABR testing.
