The HEARing CRC, through HEARworks, can provide world class research capabilities for cochlear implant, hearing aid and DSP engineering through secure discrete projects. The HEARing CRC offers complete confidentiality and project terms tailored to the needs of individual SME's or other companies.
The HEARing CRC offers engineering expertise and a proven track record in developing speech processing strategies for use in hearing aids, cochlear implants and telecommunications equipment. Such strategies are designed to maximise speech intelligibility and hearing comfort, in a variety of hearing situations. The HEARing CRC's research engineers can develop algorithms tailored to meet the needs of any strategy, or create programming to implement an existing algorithm. Our programmers have extensive expertise in a variety of software packages including Borland C++ and Matlab.
The HEARing CRC has a specialised facility for micro-focus radiography and imaging. We can produce high quality digital micro-focus images of small equipment components and zoological and anatomical specimens. The images offer precise records of internal anatomical details and component position.
The HEARing CRC can also provide electrode position analysis support using its CView software.
The HEARing CRC offers expertise in clinical assessment of therapeutic hearing devices such as hearing aids and audiological equipment. Our audiological and scientific staff are trained in clinical trial design and statistical analysis. The HEARing CRC can design and carry out a clinical trial and analyse the resultant data.
