Inspire X 2016.2
Inspire X 2016.2 is Starkey's advanced, intuitive programming tool — designed to help you provide the most precise fittings and superior counseling for your patients and their families.
Every patient's hearing needs are unique. Now you have a more personal, accurate way to fit your patients with Starkey's Prescriptive Fitting Package including SoundPoint, Live Speech Mapping and e-STAT®. We strongly believe a precise fitting is critical to creating successful patient outcomes, which is why this system is integrated into all Starkey products.
Inspire X 2016.2 Features
The Experience Manager offset levels for Familiar (2) and Inexperienced (1) have been increased, resulting in a more audible difference between the experience levels. Additionally, a new Transition (T) level has been added for patients looking for a response similar to previous devices.
The proprietary SoundPoint Tinnitus fitting tool is the only one that allows the patient to fine-tune the stimulus in real time to achieve a tinnitus stimulus that is comfortable, pleasant and can provide the greatest relief. The tool is designed to increase your patient's chance at success.
Speech Shift is a fitting solution for people with precipitous, high frequency losses who cannot hear the high frequencies. Its goal is to make high frequency information more attainable for more patients. It is included in the Best Fit logic but can also be turned on manually.
This innovative fitting function allows you to transfer patient settings from their current Starkey product to a new one — enabling more time for fine-tuning and counseling.
Thanks to Self Learning, Starkey hearing aids gradually and automatically learn patient volume control preferences in each active memory, which helps reduce the number of manual volume control adjustments patients need to make.
SoundPoint is Starkey's newest patient fitting and counseling tool, designed to more actively engage patients in the fitting process. Increased patient interaction during fittings has been shown to directly increase patient satisfaction with hearing aids. SoundPoint gives you a tool to allow your patients to make slight, subjective adjustments to their hearing aids during the fitting process, to help with the fine-tuning process as part of your overall fitting protocol. A new Launch Wizard provides clearer instructions for patients and professionals.
Live 3D Speech Mapping
Live Speech Mapping allows you to illustrate to your patient how the hearing aid is processing speech or any other input in real time and displays it for easy understanding and verification of performance.
The Lifestyle Assessment is a tool to help you interact with patients to understand the acoustic environments they are in regularly, allowing you to recommend the ideal technology level for their unique lifestyles.
Hearing Loss Simulator
Let patients and their loved ones experience the impact hearing loss can have by giving a live demonstration with our Hearing Loss Simulator. And with the drawing tools features, you can draw on screen to provide additional patient counseling.
Auto Path is an automatic function that provides the most efficient, reliable and prescriptively appropriate initial fit in the industry. You won't even need to detect the new device — Inspire does it for you.
At Starkey, we understand the delicate balance of maximizing speech audibility while maintaining listening comfort. By analyzing thousands of successful and unsuccessful hearing aids, we were able to arrive at an evidence-based fitting formula solution called e-STAT, which provides your patients with optimal access to speech cues, improving speech understanding while creating comfortable listening levels for all-day use.
Target Match/Best Fit
The Best Fit algorithm optimally adjusts all hearing device parameters to best approximate the targets for the selected fitting formula. Best Fit also sets the adaptive features according to the patient's hearing thresholds when the feature is available for a particular circuit. Target Match is a derivative of Best Fit where bands, channels, output and threshold kneepoints are modified to match the prescriptive targets. Both Target Match and Best Fit can be applied to a single memory or all memories with the click of a button.
Inspire allows for in-situ Audiometry. From the Greek meaning for "in place," in-situ enables the hearing aid to generate pure tone signals for the purpose of obtaining thresholds and uncomfortable levels in dB HL.
Track a hearing device's performance over time through downloadable information for ongoing analysis and even greater adjustment precision in future visits.
This new feature allows the hearing aid performance to be updated through Inspire when new versions of the firmware become available.
Starkey Synchronous Interface (SSI)
The new SSI protocol in Inspire enables bi-synchronous communication between the software and the hearing device, making adjustments faster and simpler than ever before.
