  • hearX Group, a hearing health medtech scale-up, specializes in affordable, high-quality hearing tech that can assist health and safety professionals to remain compliant with international standards. hearX strives to make day-to-day operations easier, more convenient, and more cost-effective; which is exactly what the hearTest Occ Health audiometry solution will do for hearing conservation businesses in the U.S.


    Noise-induced hearing loss is a major concern for safety managers. According to the Centers for Disease Control, it affects approximately 22 million U.S. workers and costs $242 million annually in workers’ compensation. Exposure to loud noise accounts for approximately 20% of adult-onset hearing loss, while 24% of the hearing difficulty among U.S. workers is caused by occupational exposure. 

    Audiometric testing in hearing conservation settings helps to determine if occupational hearing loss is being prevented by the noise control measures in place. As occupational hearing loss occurs gradually, workers often fail to notice changes in their hearing ability until significant deterioration occurs. This can be avoided by conducting annual hearing checks and taking action as soon as a change in hearing ability is detected. Annual hearing checks also contribute to increased productivity in the workforce, reduced workplace injuries and communication barriers, and they ensure adherence to regulations.


    Developed in close cooperation with audiologists and safety professionals, hearX Group’s award-winning hearTest Occ Health solution is an OSHA compliant, and IEC certified, tablet-based audiometer for comprehensive hearing surveillance, Traditionally, hearing conservation audiometric tests can cost up to $76 per test in the U.S., whereas with hearTest Occ Health, hearing tests can now be conducted for less than $1 per test. 


    With automated audiogram threshold tracking and assessments at the click of a button, hearTest Occ Health allows for simplified patient counseling, efficient on-site screening and seamless reporting, without the need for off-site testing or testing performed by 3rd party vendors. This solution provides attenuation equivalent to a single-wall sound booth, that allows the freedom of portable, reliable, and cost-effective hearing conservation audiometry for businesses.

    hearTest Occ Health enables workplace hearing screening anywhere, anytime, without the need for bulky equipment. It also offers a variety of features including: 

    • Percentage Loss of Hearing (PLH) and Standard Threshold Shift (STS) calculations, with the option to enable age adjustments when determining if a valid shift occurred. 

    • Pre-test questions ensure detailed data capturing by recording patient information to ensure compliance to standards and conformance to operational test requirements.

    • Optimize testing times by preloading patient, facility and testing information to the device.

    • Monitor changes in hearing health by adding a baseline manually or importing the screening test as a baseline test.

    • Smart features ensure on-site quality control and test reliability. Quality control metrics include: noise monitoring; false response counts; response times; and 1 kHz retest.

    • Using automated testing and smart algorithms, it’s significantly faster than traditional screening services, and allows for accurate, easy and reliable automated tests.

    • The hearScope digital video otoscope can now integrate with the hearTest Occ Health device to include eardrum images on patient records.

    • mHealth Studio is included, free of charge, with any hearTest Occ Health subscription. mHealth Studio allows for online data management, surveillance, referrals and report generation, safe and reliable storage of clinical data and a graphical comparison of baseline and screening tests, providing employers with full access and control of employee test data
