With an increase in attendance of almost 200% from 2018, the latest Center of Excellence hearing aid verification seminar, held June 12 – 14, 2019 in Wroclaw, Poland, proved beyond a doubt that people want to learn more about the benefits of the Aurical and hearing aid fitting. This seminar, hosted in collaboration with the local partner Medicus, provided hands-on training in an international setting.
Mariana Roslyng-Jensen and Anuu Priya (Natus Medical Incorporated) led the training efforts during this three day seminar. The attendees were Aurical customers, hoping to get a more in-depth knowledge of how simple the Aurical is to use, and the benefits it can create for the patient.
“We want people to be able to perform all the tests when they are finished with this training. It’s what they need,” says Anders Bjerg, International Sales Director. “It’s not just a theoretical training.”
This is the second year the seminar has been held at the private hospital facility owned by Medicus. Registration fee of 200€ included logistical on-site assistance from Medicus, as well as daily lunches and a large welcome dinner. Training certificates are provided once the seminar has been completed.
You are invited to register your interest for upcoming 2020 courses.

HEAL Conferences (also known as the Lake Como Conferences) have long been known for being a place to meet with old colleagues, make new contacts and friends with some 400 to 500 colleagues from – literally – all around the world.
These international events offer an invaluable opportunity for attendees to hear about and experience the latest technologies in hearing care, evidence-based research and best practices to improve the quality of life for the hearing impaired, enhancing cooperation and exchange among all those who are part of this multifaceted community, in a truly international and multidisciplinary forum exploring all domains ranging from infant to adult hearing.
The Scientific Program typically includes some 300 presentations from a panel of speakers among the most qualified top-notch researchers and clinicians worldwide. In HEAL 2020 the program promises to be just as exciting and fulfilling as in the previous meetings.
To develop the spirit of the Conference, the program schedule is arranged to maximize opportunities for interaction among attendees and leading exhibitors.
The Program will be complemented by a comprehensive exhibit. Ample time will be allowed for all participants to visit the exhibits and speak with exhibit representatives.
Most promising, and not to be missed, are also the presentations included in the New Technologies Area.
The American Jornal of Audiology has recently published a Special Issue reporting a few select papers from the HEAL 2018 Conference.
Last but not least, the enchanting and magic surroundings of the Lake Como are the ideal background scenario that will make HEAL 2020 an unforgettable experience, once again.

This presentation will review 2 pediatric vestibular clinical cases. Using these clinical cases as a guide, Dr. Janky will review the overall prevalence of dizziness / vestibular loss in children, which children are candidates for vestibular assessment, which vestibular assessments are appropriate given the child’s age and vestibular assessment modifications for testing children.
By the end of this e Seminar, participants will be able to:
– Describe which children are candidates for vestibular assessment
– List which vestibular assessments are appropriate given the child’s age
– Discuss vestibular assessment modifications for children

This course will highlight the use of Aurical HIT and PMM in the process of completing real ear to coupler difference (RECD) measurements and fitting. Integrated verification with the Aurical HIT will also be demonstrated with the Auical HIT will also be demonstrated. Additionally, clinical applications for analysis of advanced hearing aid features will be reviewed and demonstrated that were not completed in Aurical HIT Applications: Part 1.
By the end of this e Seminar, participants will :
– be able to describe the benefits and when to incorporate coupler-based fitting with a hearing instrument test box in the fitting clinic.
– be able to list the steps to complete RECD measurements and the steps to apply the RECD measurements to the fitting process of hearing instruments using Aurical HIT.
– be able to describe the use of hearing aid transition and frequency lowering with the Aurical HIT.
