An interface is a “shared boundary in which two or more separate components of a computer system exchange information.” Such exchanges can be between software, computer hardware, peripheral devices, or a combination of all.

For hearing care professionals, having a reliable interface for your diagnostic equipment is very important. Unfortunately, many systems, such as the Bio-logic Navigator PRO, still run on the antiquated Windows 7 operating system. While Windows 7 is still reliable, mainstream support is no longer available and security updates will cease in 2020.

Advantages of CE-Chirp® Stimuli in Infant ABR Assessment

Speed is of the essence when performing ABR tests on infant patients. The fact of the matter is, keeping a child still and quiet for an extended period of time is difficult without sedation, which comes with its fair share of risks. When using a click stimulus, only the 3000-4000 Hz region is activated. Because of those limitations, researchers have longed for a stimulus that triggers all desired frequencies of the basilar membrane at the same time.

Natus/Otometrics will be discontinuing production of its Bio-logic® Navigator® PRO at the end of 2018. Along with that, repair parts availability will become increasingly difficult to get. And, the Navigator PRO runs on Windows 7, not the Windows 10 platform.

Through December 31, 2018, your your e3 Diagnostics local representative will accept your existing Navigator PRO (Bio-Logic Navigation Pro Diagnostics Evoked Potential System 2nd Generation Silver Box) and you’ll receive the ASSR module at no additional cost when you purchase the Eclipse EP25—a $6,145 value. That’s an incredible incentive to upgrade. Need more convincing?
