Temporary Hearing Loss Test App – Now Free!

The Musicians’ Clinics of Canada announced the latest update for its Temporary Hearing Loss Test app. Among its updates, the app is now Free and is available for iOS and Android platforms.

The Temporary Hearing Loss Test App measures the softest sound that can be heard before the music or noise exposure, and then again, after the music or noise exposure. The difference is a measure of the temporary hearing loss, also known as temporary threshold shift (or TTS).

THHAC SURVEY

The purpose of this research is to gain information directly from people who have hearing difficulties and those who are caring for a dependent person with hearing difficulties. This information gathered will be used together with other evidence to guide future proposals to develop a National Hearing Strategy and implement change over time.

There are two pertinent documents:

Hearing Health Alliance of Canada Survey intro to clinicians and associations distributing survey is an outline for clinicians and associations to understand the survey and the purpose.
The second document is an invitation to the actual participants to take part in the survey: Hearing Health Alliance of Canada Survey invitation to participants
