CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

"Thank you to all for your wonderful support. I have enjoyed introducing hearScreen to Tanzania, to The School of St Jude and to the wider community. Over 300 students have had access to hearScreen and hearTest."

- Glenys Abrahams Teacher for the deaf

the School of St Jude

"hearScreen, an innovative smartphone app developed at the University of Pretoria has been validated and deployed as a school and community based health screening system to address needs in many underserved regions of South Africa."

- Dr Cara Hollander

Professor at University of Texas at Dallas

"With hearScreen® we were able to screen the hearing of over 15 000 children and adults in the greater Tshwane area. Our hearing screening project extended hearing healthcare services to ECD centres, schools, home visits, clinics and hospitals. Five underserved communities were empowered with this tool that allowed integration into existing health programs, contributing to increased impact and awareness about hearing loss within the communities."

- Tirelo Bosha

Community projects leader

"hearScreen® technology has been used to screen the hearing of over 6 600 children in the lower-income community of Tembisa. This tool allowed us to conduct community-based hearing and vision screening at local ECD centres and primary schools. We are happy to share that because of hearScreen® we were able to identify and help a 13 year old girl with moderate-severe hearing loss with a pair of hearing aids, advocating for successful development going forward."

- Tembisa

Community projects leader

"Our screening program in Philippi was able to screen over 1000 kids in five days in five different schools. With hearX’s technology we would be able to screen 45 000 children in a school year. Our screening identified 72 children who needed urgent follow-ups, and it worked so well that several groups have contacted me to replicate our project. We owe you and your team a great deal of thanks."

"hearScreen is an excellent low-cost smartphone-based screening audiometer. It enabled our audiology department to provide more efficient hearing screening services to school children and adults."

SUCCESS STORY FOR THE USABILITY OF
HEARSCREEN® IN THE COMMUNITY

hearscreen/success-story-image-min.png
The Ears & Eyes for Education (3E) community-based programme in the Western Cape (South Africa) utilises the hearScreen® application to implement pre-school hearing screening at Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres. Lay health workers are trained to conduct the hearing screening service using hearScreen®. To date, the 3E teams have screened more than 18 500 preschool children for hearing loss using the hearScreen® app.
The hearScreen® product is a powerful tool that opens up new opportunities for community-based hearing health services. The fact that the application controls the protocol and interpretation of the results make it possible for our 3E programme to employ lay health workers from the communities where we work. The app is easy to use and we have even been able to train persons with low digital literacy skills to use it. From a project management perspective, I love the fact that we can track the quality of the hearing screening service we provide by monitoring the quality index scores that the app establishes for each screener. The electronic record keeping via mHealth cloud; possibility to filter based on screening results and automated reports are definitely game changers… especially if you have ever had to run a mass hearing screening programme in the community using a paper-based system. -Tersia de Kock, 3E Project lead & Audiologist
